Banks not accepting payments from U.K.

Postby crispin8 » Fri Jun 14, 2019 2:17 pm

Has anybody had problems transferring money from a U.K. bank account to a Sabadell account? The bank here keeps refusing transfers from my English bank. They don't have a valid reason for not accepting transfers.

I transfer from HSBC and Lloyds quite a lot and do not have a problem with Sabadell also use Transferwise as it is cheaper and better rate

It's only been the last few transfers. The last 4 years worth have been trouble free

I'm sure there was a similar post a few weeks ago where someone else had problems with transfers from a UK bank to Sabadell. I think iirc it was to do with Sabadell not having their NI number to tie up with their UK bank but I can't be 100% sure. The best thing is to ask in your branch of Sabadell.

So what reason have they given you?

Pesumably you've asked otherwise you wouldn't be able to assert that it's not a valid one!

If you have a UK address then create a Starling online bank account and add a Euro account to that.
Then go into your Sabadell branch and set-up an appointment with the manager. If he can't/won't resolve the problem and offer some compensation, or if you're just fed-up with Sabadell, transfer all of your DDs etc over to the Starling Euro account and close the Sabadell account.
