Electronic Statements from International Banks

Companies still find it difficult to get bank statements in the TWIST BSB format from many overseas institutions.

The bills that banks send to companies are complicated—so complicated that various vendors offer software for checking bank statements to see whether the fees a company was charged are in line with its agreement with the bank. But companies can’t use that software unless their banks provide them with electronic statements, and getting such statements from many overseas banks is still a struggle.

The TWIST BSB Newsletter shows the number of international banks providing BSB billing statements rose from 12 in 2012 to 16 earlier this year.
