Transfer from or to a savings account

You can only make transfers between savings* and current accounts if they’re held by the same account holder, at the same bank.

Example: Transferring money to your children’s savings accounts has to be done in two steps :

  1. First make a transfer from your current account to your child’s current account.
  2. Then transfer the money from their current account to their savings account.

Standing orders from savings accounts aren’t allowed.

Transfers to a Plan Epargne Logement aren’t affected.

*Savings accounts covered by this regulation are: Livret A, Livret de Developpement Durable et Solidaire (LDDS), Livret HSBC Epargne, Livret HSBC 2A, Livret Epargne Populaire (LEP), Livret Jeune, Compte Epargne Logement (CEL), Compte sur Livret (CSL).

Free SEPA transfers

Regular, one-off and future SEPA transfers in Euros, made online or on your mobile, are free.

Non-SEPA transfers

International transfers may be subject to additionnal fees:

  • transmission costs (4) for sending the payment
  • correspondents' fees (5) for intermediary banks processing the payment
  • reception fees (5), dependent on the beneficiary bank

Choose between 3 fee options:

  • OUR: you pay most of the costs

    If the beneficiary must receive the full amount, this is the best option.

    However, they may be charged by their bank for receiving the payment.

  • SHARE: the costs are shared

    HSBC and the beneficiary pay the processing and reception fees.

    The beneficiary's expenses may be taken from the transferred amount. This is the only option on My Mobile Bank.

  • BEN: the beneficiary pays all the costs

    You don't pay any fees. They're automatically deducted from the transfer amount.

The SHARE option is obligatory for transfers in any currency going to a country in the European Economic Area.

This includes member states of the European Union, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, and Euro transfers to Monaco, San Marino or Switzerland.

Cross-border payment charges in the European Economic Area (EEA)

On 19 April 2020, European regulation 2019/518 (CBPR2) comes into effect. This introduces transparent currency conversion charges for cross-border payments by credit card or transfer in currencies other than euros within the EEA.(6)

(2) We would like to remind you that in accordance with current French regulations, individuals, associations and companies that do not have a commercial form, who are French tax residents or are established in France, are required to declare, on their personal or corporate income tax return, the accounts opened, held, used or closed abroad as well as all related accrued income. Furthermore, individuals must pay social contributions upon receipt of investment income through these accounts and, if necessary, an advance income tax payment. Finally, if the concerned account holders are liable to pay wealth tax (IFI), the value of shares equivalent to real estate assets held in those accounts must be declared for wealth tax purposes, under certain conditions. 

Additionally, in accordance with current French regulations, French tax resident individuals are required to declare information related to capitalisation contracts and other investments of the same nature on their income tax return, notably life insurance contracts, purchased with insurance institutions established outside France and, if applicable, all related accrued income realised upon a partial or a total surrender of those contracts. Furthermore, these individuals must pay social contributions due further to their contract. Finally, if the concerned policyholders are liable to pay wealth tax (IFI), the value of redeemable insurance contracts and capitalisation contracts equivalent to the value of units of accounts composed of taxable real estate assets must be declared for wealth tax purposes.

In the event of failure to comply with these obligations, concerned individuals, associations or companies may be subject to payment of back taxes and penalties. For further information regarding these tax and reporting obligations, we recommend you contact an independent advisor.
