Maximum money transfer to Philippines

Why do money transfer companies put maximum limits to fund transfers to the Philippines?

Because they want to avoid filing reports required by government agencies implementing Anti-Money Laundering laws both in the sending and receiving country. They also want to avoid doing further Know-your-customer requirements.

In the Philippines, all financial institutions, including money transfer organizations, are required to file a report with the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) if they process a transaction exceeding 500,000 pesos. It may be in cash or equivalent monetary instrument, or whether it’s fund transfer or debit-credit or other payment mode. They must report within 5 working days from day of transaction.

That’s why most remittance companies have set their maximum amount for money transfers to the Philippines to less than 500,000 pesos.

In the USA, financial institutions are required to verify the identity of senders and maintain accurate records for fund transfers of $3,000 or more.

But if they see signs of suspicious activity, they must file a report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) of the US Department of the Treasury. For banks, the threshold is $25,000. For most financial institutions, the threshold is $5,000. For money service businesses like remittance companies, the threshold is $2,000.

That’s why most remittance companies in the US limit first-time senders to less than $2,000 and require valid government IDs and further personal info if senders want to send $2,000 or more.
