What are the bank and transaction fees?

If you use bank accounts, payment gateways etc. to make or receive payments, the following fees may occur:

  • Bank/merchant account setup fees

  • Bank/merchant account maintenance fees

  • Gateway fees

  • Service fees per transaction charged by banks or gateways involved

  • Currency exchange fees

You can also check the full LHV price list (Valid starting from 1st of November 2018), TransferWise borderless pricing, or Holvi pricing, for more information.

These fees are all considered business expenses, as long as the relevant transactions were related to your business activities.

Which currencies are supported by LeapIN partner banks?

If you bank with LHV, then you can send and receive the following currencies to and from your bank account:

AUD, CAD, CHF, CZK, DKK, EUR, GBP, HKD, HRK, HUF, JPY, NOK, PLN, RUB, SEK.

Please note that it’s not possible to receive USD to your LHV bank account.

LHV won’t automatically convert the funds you receive into euros. If you wish to convert them, you’ll need to create a currency exchange order in your online bank to convert between currencies.

With TransferWise borderless you can hold money in over 40 currencies within your borderless account.

And Holvi currently only supports euros.
