Important information

As Jersey is outside the European Union, you can only use the SEPA Funds Transfer method to deposit money into your Euro accounts held there. You cannot use SEPA to make payments from your Euro accounts held in Jersey (but Citibank Global Transfers and SWIFT funds transfers are available).

Transfer money from your Jersey account to another UK account free of charge using a BACS Funds Transfer.

Funds usually clear in 3-4 working days and BACS transfers can be arranged using Citibank Online or via your Relationship Manager.
