Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, Division Bank and Insurance (Austria)
On behalf of the Division Bank and Insurance of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, the legal representation of the whole Austrian banking industry, I would like to submit the following comments: We are very critical of the proposal to regulate fees for cross-border payments in non-Euro-currencies. The transactions in foreign currencies concerned are not processed in the SEPA-system and therefore far more effort and costs are necessary to...
Anonymous (United Kingdom)
TransferWise supports any action that reduces the cost of non-domestic currency cross-border payments for consumers. Whilst there may be additional costs for these transactions compared to euro-to-euro transactions, we believe that often these costs are artificially inflated to increase financial institutions profits, and these charges are being hidden in order to mislead consumers in overly complex pricing display.

We would like to stress the most relevant differences from the processing flow perspective between a...
European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB) (Belgium)
The European Association of Co-operative Banks (EACB) sees no need for an action to extend Regulation (EC) 924/2009 to all currencies or other EU currencies. Cross-border transactions in non-Euro currency account for a very limited proportion of all transactions in the European Union. Therefore we believe that any action envisaged by the European Commission in this field should take into account the principle of proportionality. Generally...
