This is great, thank you!
Indeed the EUR account has an IBAN number but the CHF one is a CHF IBAN at Credit Suisse. I can transfer CHF to this account from my UBS account at no cost.
Oxmynx, this is only the case if you are a Swiss resident. Those who registered an address outside of Switzerland with their Revolut account will only get the GB… IBAN (which you can also see in the SWIFT tab).
Is it worth getting TW just to bypass this then? Because you are still able to use CHF within your account right? I did my last purchase yesterday 15th. (the bot message was on the 9th). Im in the same boat; live in France and work in Switzerland.
It certainly is and is a well proven method and lets you avoid any unforeseen currency conversions
and other fees on the way to your own bank account.
It offers even more local bank accounts like the personal US one and works great as a backup card abroad (TW card is debit)
UBS has a packet that is free of charge in the first year and 10chf per month after. There’s no difference from swiss resident and non swiss resident.
A lot of banks applies extra charges (i.e. PostFinance), others not (BPS Swiss) but it depends of the bank.
