the title of the payment:PASE + your name. The swift code of the bank is INGBPLPW.

For payments from abroad it is customary to extend the IBAN number by PL added in front of the account number.

All the money transfer costs and bank charges must be paid by the participant.

It is very important that you mark the payment with the sub-account name PASE and your name, because otherwise the financial department will not know where to allocate the money and we will not have your name on the list of those who have paid. To ensure that the money transfer is properly registered, please send us also a fax of the payment document to (0048  32)  3640809.

IMPORTANT: Everyone who wishes to receive an invoice (Faktura VAT)issued to the home institution should make sure that the money is transferred by the institution, and not from a private bank account of the participant. It is a policy of our financial department not to issue the bills to a different person/institution than the one who actually made the payment. If, for some reason, it is impossible for the university to transfer the money for conference participation and the staff members are asked to make the payments by themselves, we suggest that in order to ensure that the bill will be issued to the sending institution the transfer should be made by a postal order with the name of the institution as the payer. Bank transfers from private accounts will always be treated as paid by the account holders. If the fee is paid at the conference desk in cash, there is no problem with issuing the bill to the university.
