TIN and CCI

Postby Ruud » Sat Sep 24, 2011 10:47 pm

By accident I bumped into the website http://www.tin.com.pe/ some weeks ago.
After reading I understood that all Peruvian bank account numbers are going to be standardized. The same way they have done it in Europe, by preceding you existing account number with unique bank codes. In Europe this standardized account number is called IBAN. In Peru it is called CCI, Código Interbankcario. The meaning of the 20 digit numbers is here. http://www.tin.com.pe/cci.html

It seemed to me a big step forward to optimize the banking system, until I looked at the Tarifa personas page.
If I understand correctly, a simple wire transfer in Soles from your bank to another brand bank not in the same town, will cost 0.6% + 17.50 soles with of maximum of 295 soles, on average.

Maybe I am missing something?

Extremely useful information which I would like to repeat here.If sending local (PEN) currency from a foreign bank, they will request a 20 digit account number. In my case there was no mention of the (CII) code generated from the banks 14 digit account number. Good luck.

Hi,
I did a CCI transfer from my INTERBANK Tarapoto account to BCP Lima but was not charge o tariffs? Also just started in Canada too with a major bank you could do a CCI transfer to Peru with no charge Tariffs. I did try it out with my account in Canada to Interbank peru and transfer was done in 2 business days with no tariff or charge which now is super good.
