If one of our branches ours is the Beneficiary of a Payment Instrument issued by another of our branches, for the purposes of this clause, the branches will be treated as separate legal entities.

16. Power of attorney If required to carry out your instructions in relation to a credit instrument or collection instrument, each employee or officer of ours may (and, if they do, they are irrevocably appointed your attorney to do so) sign, endorse, negotiate, present or otherwise deal with the credit instruments or collection instruments, or documents required to pay, settle or complete that credit instrument or collection instrument. Each employee acting as your attorney may do so even if it involves a conflict of duty or they or us have a personal interest in doing so.

17. Cash coverThis clause applies if we are entitled to require you to provide cash cover in respect of a credit instrument. If you deposit, or instruct us to transfer, funds to an account of yours (“cash cover account”) to be security for payment of money which we may be called on to pay or which we may pay under a credit instrument, so long as our liability under the credit instrument continues, you shall not be entitled to require payment of all or any part of those funds and you irrevocably authorise us at our discretion to apply all or part of the funds as may be necessary towards payment of any monies which we may pay or be called to pay under that credit instrument. You acknowledge that any variation in the Australian dollar equivalent of the collection instrument is your responsibility and we may require you to increase the amount deposited in that cash cover account.

18. Termination or suspensionWe may immediately terminate this Agreement or suspend your access to and use of Global Trade if your CommBiz service is terminated or your access to your CommBiz service is suspended.

19. Rate of exchange for foreign currency conversionsWhen we provide a foreign exchange service to you for the conversion of one currency to another currency, we will apply the following exchange rate to the transaction (unless otherwise negotiated with the Bank):

Where one of the currencies to be exchanged in your transaction includes Australian dollars (AUD), the exchange rate applied will be as quoted by the Bank on https://www.commbank.com.au/ personal/international/foreign-exchange-rates.html with reference to:

‘Send International Money Transfer’ if your transaction involves you selling AUD and buying a foreign currency, or

‘Receive International Money Transfer’ if your transaction involves you buying AUD and selling a foreign currency.

Where none of the currencies in your transaction includes AUD, please refer to the ‘Foreign Exchange Calculator’ located at the above URL.

Please note that fees and charges may apply to a foreign exchange conversion. Any applicable fees and charges will be set out in the ‘Standard fees and charges for international payments and travel funds’ available on the Bank’s website detailed above.

20. Sending money overseasMoney sent overseas is usually available for payment to the recipient within 3 business days (Australian time) of our accepting your instructions. This timeframe may be extended due to the requirements and practices of overseas banks and regulators and other circumstances beyond the Bank’s control (such as international communications breakdowns and problems or delays in processing of a payment by other banks). Some payments may be subject to delays due to additional screening and processes (e.g. payments to first time beneficiaries).
