Transferring funds from your bank account to an overseas account

International transfers are available to Macquarie clients on Macquarie Online Banking, provided by OFX.

Please note, this isn't available from the Macqurie Mobile Banking app.

To access the service on Macquarie Online Banking:
  1. Select the icon from the side menu; or first click on the icon in top left-hand corner to display the side menu
  2. Select International Money Transfers, or navigate to the OFX site
  3. Register with OFX
  4. Once you’ve organised your transfer with OFX, you’ll need to initiate a funds transfer from your Macquarie account. OFX will provide the necessary account details.
    • Funds can be transferred from any Macquarie bank account
    • Transfers aren't available for trust accounts (please use the Macquarie Overseas Telegraphic Transfer Request Form)
    • If you need help, call the online International Transfer (IMT) service on 1300 797 494 (+61 2 8667 8082), 24/7.

    For more information, please see here.

    Alternatively, you can use our Macquarie Overseas Telegraphic Transfer Request Form to facilitate your international transfer. You’ll have to use this form if you need to send an international transfer and the funds need to remain in AUD.

    Please note, OFX doesn’t provide this facility.

    Transferring funds to your bank account from an overseas account

    Funds can be transferred from an overseas bank account into the following accounts:
    • Macquarie Transaction Account
    • Macquarie Home Loan with Debit Mastercard (Home Loan or Offset Account that has a BSB starting with 182)
    • Macquarie Cash Management Account
    • Macquarie Consolidator Cash Account
    • Macquarie Vision Cash Account.

    When depositing funds into your account, the depositor or remitter needs to include the following details:
    • Bank name: Macquarie Bank Limited
    • Bank address: 1 Shelley St, Sydney, NSW 2000
    • SWIFT (BIC): MACQAU2S
    • Your account name
    • Your account number
    • Your account BSB number.

    Deposits can only be made in Australian dollars and the intermediary bank may deduct fees from the funds being transferred.

    Please note, this can result in the payee receiving a lesser amount than expected. We can’t control or refund any fees of this nature that are incurred.

    What’s a SWIFT or BIC Code?

    A SWIFT code, also known as a Bank Identifier Code (BIC), is an 8-11 character code that identifies banks and financial institutions internationally.

    Macquarie’s SWIFT code is MACQAU2S. You’ll need to provide this code to anyone sending money to your Macquarie bank account from overseas.

    Please note some depositors require extra characters – in this situation you can enter three X's eg MACQAU2SXXX

    What’s an IBAN?

    An International Bank Account Number (IBAN) is used in some countries to identify specific bank accounts. IBANs aren’t used in Australia. You may need to provide an IBAN when transferring to overseas bank accounts.
