3. Sending SGD overseas.
Currently, Sleek Business Account does not support sending SGD overseas (e.g. sending SGD overseas to Australia). You may send other currencies overseas.

When you wish to transfer money from your bank account into an overseas bank account, the bank needs to make contact with the receiving bank.
The time and effort to make contact with the receiving bank is accordingly chargeable as a cable charge. It is almost akin to the fees you must pay when you call your overseas friend on your telco post-paid plan.
The cable charge is typically a fixed fee per transaction, set by the bank or money transfer service provider.
There will always be a receiving bank in an overseas money transfer transaction. The receiving bank is also known as the agent bank. The agent bank will need to liaise with your bank or money transfer service provider to accept and complete the transaction. For these efforts, the agent bank charges a fee.
