I got some money transferred from a company in the USA to my UK bank (HSBC) account and I found that it is listed as "advice confirms" in the bank statement record online.

What does this mean?


It means that you are expected to have received a separate piece of communication ("advice") which confirms who the payment came from. This is common with CHAPS payments and overseas transactions.

  • So this is not a problem in the payment and should be updated when they confirm the sender name, correct?

  • This is not a problem in the payment, correct. As to whether they will update it, I don't think so.
