Help on: Request for Transfer

Use this dialog to enter a Request for Transfer (RfT). Since the originator's account does not necessarily have to be held at the beneficiary bank, when entering the order, first select the desired bank access in Global Payment Plus.

Please note: When entering a Request for Transfer for Commerzbank branches in Belgium, France, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary, the Foreign credit transfer (Commerzbank foreign units) operation can be used.

When processing payment orders for certain Commerzbank branches abroad, you will receive country-specific information on special features in addition to this document which contain requirements for filling specific spaces. Failure to observe this information on special features could result in a repair fee or the rejection of the transaction or file.

For an explanation of specific elements within the form, simply click the number and marker that correspond to that element. For Swift-savvy users, the relevant Swift field is also specified in the target Swift MT101 format for the elements listed below.
