HSBC in Turkey

Quick question but has anyone had a problem transferring money through SWIFT from HSBC Turkey to the UK? I tried yesterday but the new SWIFT numbers and IBAN in the UK make it impossible as on the SWIFT transfer online it only gives a drop down list to choose BIC number from and they are all wrong now since HSBC went from global to UK only! Don't really want to go down the route of phone banking as the last two people I spoke to didn't really understand what i was telling them so don't hold much confidence in the money going to where I want it.

Re: HSBC in Turkey

Thanks but HSBC to HSBC is free if it ever works lol. They phoned me back this morning and I think I have finally made them understand that their drop down list needs to be updated but no-one knows who would deal with that so they've contacted their technical team.

Don't know if it's relevant but a couple of months ago TSB sent me a email saying their IBAN and SWIFT numbers had changed, as for Hsbc I never have a problem transferring cash from HSBC Turkey to HSBC UK.

How do you get around the drop down list with the bic code? I've tried to explain to Turkish phone banking that the BIC codes have all changed from MIDL to HBUK and all the IBAN numbers are different too (but you can type these in mannually so no problem) but they keep telling me i'm wrong and the branch in the UK told me that if it was sent using the old bic number it wouldn't get to my account as it no longer 'exists'?

Re: HSBC in Turkey

I have had the same problems trying to send from HSBC UK to Turkey. The Turkish BIC is not recognised by the UK bank !

Re: HSBC in Turkey

Again on the subject of HSBC, today I received a email letting me know there is a NEW HSBC TR mobile phone app,
I tried it and its not only fast but also works alongside the HSBC UK app.

Only one small problem which is when installed onto my phone it shows as HSBC UK but got around that by installing a short-cut rename app which basically just copies and creates a new short-cut and you name it yourself and then just remove the original shoort-cut from the screen.

However the icon in the Apps folder stays with the original name.
