Just wanted to clarify what the situation and find out what others have done when transfering into the IB account. On their funds transfer page, they list the details as:
SWIFT BIC Code: CITI AU 2X
I'm assuming that as an Australian with an Aus Bank account, I can transfer it with a bank transfer using the BSB number rather than SWIFT code, but my bank (Westpac) limits the transfer on internet banking to $5000 per day and I called them to confirm they could not increase this.
I'm actually living in the UK at the moment so I am unable to do the transfer in the branch. Is this the only way? I have already put the transfer order in on my IB account for $20k, so I'm wondering if it would just confuse them further if I placed four $5k transfers over 4 days?
