In February 2015 The Royal Bank of Scotland announced changes to our business which will see RBS become a more focused bank that is sustainable in the long-term by having a more client focused product offering and reduced geographical footprint. At the same time we said we will re-focus our transaction banking services offering on our home market capabilities in the UK and Ireland.
This means RBS is no longer providing global transaction services, including bank accounts, payments, electronic banking, cash management and trade finance services (together “GTS Arrangements”) outside of the United Kingdom and Ireland or from the GTS International Platform in the United Kingdom and Ireland (1) and that the RBS presence in selected geographies has been ended.
In this context we have undertaken an extensive client communication process to facilitate the closure of our international network.
In August 2015 The Royal Bank of Scotland Plc, ceased its activity in Australia. Please contact us if you have queries in respect of bank accounts and banking arrangements provided through our branch in Australia
