¹ SHA fees are shared between the sender and beneficiary of the payment: overseas bank fees will be deducted from the payment. This will mean the beneficiary receives less than you have sent.

By choosing this option, the full amount you send should reach the beneficiary, however, this is not within Kiwibank’s control and there may be additional fees charged to the beneficiary.
