You are strictly cautioned in sending money to any person whom You do not know.

If You want a Transaction to be dispatched on the same day, You need to submit the details and make payments for the Transaction on or before 4pm GMT (Monday to Friday).Those that are received after the cut off time will be processed on the same day but released along with the following business day's Transactions.

Please note: In Bangladesh, the official weekend is Friday and Saturday; Banks are closed on these 2 days and therefore if You submit a transaction on Thursday after 4pm GMT time, the bank will only be able to process on Sunday when the banks re-open the working week. Banks are also closed for Official Bangladeshi Public Holidays like Eid, Diwali, Independence Day, Bengali New Year etc.

Also take into consideration the time difference between the UK and Bangladesh (+5/6 hours). If You send a Transaction on a Thursday at 12pm , the time would be either 5pm or 6pm depending on season – therefore the bank will not be able to a process a Transaction until they re-open on the Sunday.

The Remitter should not disclose the reference number, value of transfer or other information about the transfer to any other person other than the intended Beneficiary. Bangla Remit software is able to send an SMS to the Beneficiary with the Transaction details, so please ensure the Mobile number the Remitter provides is correct.
