Our Service fee covers the cost of services rendered when administering & maintaining a third-party transaction to a
beneficiary that is not living within the country which the fund is being deposited, service fee is usually zero point four
percent (0.004%) of the transferable fund and it is under normal conditions paid by the beneficiary of a third-party
transaction. The applicable registration and transfer fees have been paid by the depositor.
The reason why the service fee cannot be deducted from your fund is because your fund has been insured by the depositor, this
