Q:

What information is required for Purpose of Payment for payments to Malaysia

A:

Malaysian Banks have changed their payment process, so that all payments are now required to include a 'purpose of payment' description with the payment. This change is with immediate effect and includes all currencies.

The purpose of payment description should include a narrative detailing what the payment is for e.g "Payment of Commercial Invoice, invoice number xxxx"

Acceptable Example :

Purchase of Dairy Products, invoice no 123456

Unacceptable Example:

Invoice no 123456

Failire to include a 'purpose of payment' description will result in the payment being rejected by the receiving bank in Malaysia.
