Paying euro bills in Turkey from HSBC Turkey
Hi, we have a boat in Marmaris, but we live in England. Whilst we are away we pay someone to look after the boat, service it etc.
We have TL and Euros accounts at HSBC Marmaris, and have internet banking for these. Previously we have paid the bills straight from our Euro account to a business with an HSBC account.
We have now changed companies to a business with a Sekerbank account. When we try to make a payment online we get a message saying that transfers can only be made to another HSBC account.
We have verified the IBAN number, and that it is for a euro account.
We have also tried transferring TL to the business' TL account, but although it seemed to work the transaction was reversed a few days later.
Does anyone know what we are doing wrong ? We thought IBAN transfers were international, so don't understand the restriction to other HSBC accounts.
