We bank with CajAstur and received a cheque for 100 euros recently, written out from an Irish (euro) bank account..I paid this in and have noticed that we received only 93 euros….the bank has taken 7% as commision/ to pay for processing? HUMMMMPPPHHHH!
I assumed, wrongly, that as the cheque was from a euro account there would be no problems…oh, well you live and learn…at the cost of 7 euros!!
Same elsewhere or what? We bank with them as hubby gets his salary quicker this way!!

Speaking of bank charges. We get a charged as holders of a joint non-resident bank account , 15 euros each every year. On statement as -COMISION CERT.NO RES. with unicaja. Is this correct. We were told we’d have to pay it on opening our account but didn’t think it would be a regular charge! regards, saga

All quite normal, but some friendly bank managers will pay it back.

Just wasn’t sure if it was correct – regards, saga

Here in the UK I was told that a cheque from Gibraltar, even though sterling would attract a fee of £6.50.
I think this is a flat fee regardless of the value of a cheque!
So I think these fees must be pretty standard.
