What you have found here regarding direct debit is called IBAN discrimination and is against the law. Specifically, against article 9 of EU Regulation 260/2012: A payer making a credit transfer to a payee holding a payment account located within the Union shall not specify the Member State in which that payment account is to be located, provided that ...

First, if you're paying in a shop, they often have a cheque printer. You pass the cashier the blank cheque, they print it, you read it and verify and you sign at the bottom. If you have to write a cheque, here are the parts you have to fill: Payez contre ce chèque (2 lines): the amount, spelled out. Don't worry if you make grammatical mistakes, as long as ...

Your records, to the extent they are linked at all, are linked through your SSN. When you get paid, your salary information is reported by your employer to the IRS and SSA. Your SSA records are linked to your USCIS records because SSA checks with USCIS before issuing your SSN. A spelling mistake in your pay records is unlikely to affect USCIS processing. ...

I apologize for an extended quotation, but there's really little to add to what this article says. I've just highlighted the most outstanding details: By far the easiest way to pay an electric bill in Thailand is to go to your local 7-Eleven or Tesco Lotus Express, which can be found on practically every town block. Make sure to bring the original bill with ...

In theory it should work since the SEPA schemes got in place in the Euro-zone countries in 1 February 2014, but as it's quite recent it's possible that you'll have additional issues with your employer or some utility companies, so you should defintiely ask them first if it's okay with them (it should be however) On the other hand while having a foreign ...

You have it correctly. After a bit of searching I found the Examples visa pricing charges page. There are two examples and both detail that partners/spouses and children are considered additional applicants. It also points out that there's a surcharge if you pay by credit card (currently 0.98% VISA/Mastercard, 1.5% American Express, and 2.0% Diners Club ...

Most bigger stores will have a counter were you pay bills and, often, a money exchange, where you can load cards it sells. Many banks adjacent to their ATMs have a bill pay online; it is the machine door that opens up & you put cash into to pay. It's like an ATM, select bill pay on the screen above and it takes cash. You can also go to a bank and buy a ...

Many condo buildings allow basic utilities (but not always electricity) to be paid at the condo management office. Looking at your bill, it looks like this is how you should pay this bill.

SEPA is not a lie, it's there. All national bank transfers are running on the SEPA infrastructure. So there is no technical reason for IBAN discrimination. It's just people. People just love their national bubbles and good old local habits. The only way to win against any discrimination is persistent and wide-spread protest. Do not let this go unchallenged. ...

Gilles already described the process nicely but note that there is little you can do to avoid falsification. The cheques themselves have a few safety features but the cheque book can be stolen and I think that it's even legal to write a cheque on regular paper if your bank contract allows it. Of course, using your cheques would require forging your signature ...

Your Green Card or renewing you H1B won't be affected, even if your employer never fixes it; which they will. The only people who care about the paychecks are you and the IRS (well, and your state's income tax bureaucracy). There's no important linkage in this case between your money and your immigration status.

Being paid while you are visiting on a tourist visa is fine. For a simpler example, consider a full-time US employee that visits the UK for a week. There is absolutely no problem about their employer depositing their salary in their bank account during the visit.

Update as things progress: In late September, WaterNet sent me a letter, informing me my annual service charge was being reduced by 55.08 EUR. So, apparently they got informed at some point about my de-registration. However - the total charge had been 269.56 EUR, and I left after 169 of 364 days of the year, so that din't make sense. I've written them to ...
