CLP – Chilean Peso
CLP is considered to be a restricted currency, which implies an inherent limitation to the tradability of this currency. Fund transfers in this currency are not allowed outside of Chile.
Besides this limitation, this currency is considered to be complex, due to the large amount of information that needs to be provided.
- Currency Guidelines
Besides the standard information, the full name (written out in full, without initials, abbreviations or acronyms) is mandatory.
A clear reason / purpose of payment is recommended and consists of a full written description (in English) of the nature of payment to be provided in the remittance information. For example: providing an invoice number without guiding text is considered as insufficient and can result in errors or delays.
Example: Payment of travel expenses – invoice n° 123456789
Additionally, it is mandatory to provide in the remittance information the beneficiary’s tax ID: RUT (Registro Unico Tributario) or RUN (Rol Unico Nacional) for all CLP payments.
If your beneficiary is a NGO, they may need to provide up-to-date registration documents in order to receive funds.
