Smooth payments from abroad

In case of sufficient data on the document, the payment processing shall be processed online by clearing on the client's account on the day of the payment, not later than the next working day after receipt of the document.
VÚB Bank credits foreign payments to the client's account at the exchange rate of the day at the time of processing and at the amount stated by the foreign bank. Payments in counter-value in excess of the bank limit (above-limit operation) are processed at an individual rate.
Basic data needed to make a payment from abroad for a client of VÚB Bank via SWIFT:
- Name of the bank:
- Všeobecná úverová banka, a. s.
- Mlynské Nivy 1
- 829 90 Bratislava
- Swift address of the bank: SUBASKBX
- Beneficiary account number, including the bank code 0200

Payments from abroad by check
VÚB bank accepts all types of bank and private checks that are issued by a foreign bank or other institution, or person in a foreign currency or in EUR.
Bank and private checks have a limited maturity and must be submitted within the time limits set by the law (Act No. 191/1950 Coll. The Bills and Checks Act). At the same time, they must also comply with other conditions within the meaning of this Act. The check is presented by the check owner, that is, on the order of whom the check is issued. If the owner of the check is immobile, he / she will sign the check on the back of the checker in front of a notary, who shall draw up a certificate on it. Thereafter, the entrusted person may submit the check to VÚB bank, together with the certificate and the representation mandate.
They are issued by banking institutions. If the bank can verify the signatories' signatures by signature specimens, or at the client's request, verify the coverage of the check via S.W.I.F.T., it can pay the checks immediately upon submission. If it is not possible to verify the signatories of the check issuer, respectively its coverage, VÚB bank will take over the check for non-binding collection.
They are issued by non-banking institutions, or legal or natural persons. For these checks, it is not possible to verify their coverage or signatories' signatures, so VÚB bank therefore only accepts them for non-binding collection. The value of the check is paid to the client only after the payment has been credited to them by a foreign bank. Payment of the check accepted for collection by VÚB Bank is executed on the client's account in the exchange rate from the day of the due date, that is, from the day when the payment was credited by the foreign bank and in cash by the current exchange rate.
