Since June 16, Tinkoff Bank has introduced a commission for incoming SWIFT transfers in dollars, euros and pounds. Its size will be 3% of the transfer amount, but not less than 200 conventional units and not more than the transfer amount, the financial institution said on Twitter.
In addition, since June 16, the bank has set the minimum amount of SWIFT transfers at $20,000. “We are forced to introduce temporary restrictions due to an increase in the number of checks by Western partners and a decrease in the volume of payments processed by them from clients of Russian banks,” Tinkoff said.
After the announcement of the fee, one Twitter user asked if he received a $150 transfer from the US, would the bank take the entire amount of the transfer as a fee. To which the Tinkoff representative replied : “Hello. Yes, such conditions. Hope for understanding”.
