How to make a transfer from your UBS account

If you have a UBS account and you would like to make a foreign exchange transaction with b-sharpe, you must make a transfer from your UBS account to the b-sharpe account that we communicated to you when this was opened. For this, you should use their "Digital Banking" e-banking solution.

Prerequisites:

  • you have created your b-sharpe account (if not, click here)
  • your b-sharpe account has been validated (if not, click here to complete)
  • you have entered the recipient bank account in your client area

For simplicity, we take into account a transfer from a Swiss franc account to the b-sharpe Swiss franc account.

Important note

Whatever type of transfer you wish to make from UBS to the b-sharpe account (single transfer, or automated transfer - standing order), it is essential to indicate the following information in the transfer's "Message" field :

  • the b-sharpe client code starting with C followed by 7 digits. This code is available in your b-sharpe client area
  • your last name and first name

How to automate a transfer from a UBS account to b-sharpe

To automate a transfer from a UBS account to the b-sharpe account, you must set up a standing order on your UBS e-banking area. To do this, simply repeat the previous steps, and in the last screen, push on the "Standing order" button on the right.

Then enter:

  1. The details of your standing order (in particular start date and end date)
  2. In "Reason for payment", your b-sharpe client code in the form C1234567, as well as your last name and first name
  3. Your UBS account to be debited

The b-sharpe client code and your last name and first name are essential for the successful execution of your transfer and your foreign exchange transaction.

Once this information has been entered, a transfer will be made to the b-sharpe account at the frequency you have chosen and for the amount selected, which avoids the need to make the transfer manually every month.
