Remote account management

Remote account management

With the remote transfer system, from your usual bank, you can manage and access:

  • Centralizing accounts: an account in which you centralize your collections and payments in our country. In this way you can fulfill your operating needs simply and regularly with your accounts in Spain.

  • Subsidiary accounts: if you have subsidiaries in Spain and are looking for centralized cash management, you can access your subsidiaries' accounts remotely.

With the following advantages:

  • facilitates account management, since you continue operating with your usual bank
  • enables you to make payments in Spain from Spain
  • centralizes your collections in Spain, benefitting from the prices and efficiency of interbank payment systems


A bilateral agreement is required between SabadellAtlántico and your bank in connection with the remote transfer request.

  • SabadellAtlántico receives the withdrawal orders from the accounts through a SWIFT MT101 message issued by the foreign company's bank that manages the account located in Spain. The accountholder in Spain must authorize us to fulfill these orders.
  • Information on saldos y de movimientos in accounts are supplied through MT940 and MT942.

Legal obligations

Requirements of Spanish legislation:

  • If the accountholder is a subsidiary in Spain of the company that, through a financial entity, will give withdrawal orders: powers of attorney must be arranged by the subsidiary in Spain for the persons authorized to operate the account from abroad

    Generally, anybody giving instructions in connection with a company's account should have sufficient powers of attorney of the said company to give the said instructions

  • If the holder of the account is a resident company in Spain and payments or charges are carried out with individuals or legal entities non-residents in Spain: the resident must notify the payment or collection item when it exceeds 12,500 € or par value.
