I want to receive Euros from my company in Germany to my savings bank account (HDFC) in India where I work. What are the exact details I have to give to my company in Germany? My company's bank is Deutsche Bank.

Swift code of HDFC which is HDFCINBBXXX, Bank Name & Address and Account Number are sufficient for this ?

Its best to check with your company what details they need. Generally for SWIFT Transfers, the below is sufficient;

  • Bank Name
  • Bank Address
  • Your Bank Account Number
  • Your Name

Additionally any transfers to India require a "Purpose of Remittance" to be filled by the company paying to money.

    what should be filled in "purpose of remittance" ?

  • Its why money is being sent to you ... Salary/Fee/invoice etc. Its best your company checks with their Bankers and fill in the right information.
