Sometimes the amount of the remittance received is less than the original amount of remittance, because an intermediary bank may deduct its fees.

If the bank has nostro/vostro account with the remitting bank, a remittance usually reaches the bank in full amount. However, if a remitting bank does not have account relationship with the bank, a remittance may be transferred to the bank via one or through several intermediary banks. Each intermediary bank may deduct a service charge when handling the transfer. Therefore, the amount of the remittance received may be less than the original amount of remittance.
