Non-Repetitive Wire Transfer Instructions



The Electronic Funds Transfer (Form EFT02B) Requisition must be used to transfer funds by electronic transfer.  Payments made by EFT can only be made due to one or more of the following reasons:
  • Payment is being made to a foreign country
  • Legal or contractual requirements
  • Expedited payment required
  • Guaranteed payment delivery requested
  • Most cost-effective payment procedure 
The LUC Treasurer’s Office will make the final decision as to the necessity of an electronic payment instead of a check.


  • Complete all sections of Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) – Non-Repetitive Wire Transfer Form (Form EFT02B).  Type or print all information legibly.

    - If request is in excess of $5,000, a secondary budget administrator approval is required
  • Attach required bank account instructions as received by the vendor
    - If all required bank account instructions are included on vendor invoice, the vendor invoice is sufficient documentation.  If not, please include separate correspondence from the vendor providing the required bank account instructions

    • Beneficiary Full Address (including Country)

    - For a new vendor or if there is not a Vendor Number on file at LUC, a W-9 Form () (U.S. Payees) or Form W-8BEN (Foreign Individuals) or W-8BEN-E (Foreign Entities) has to be completed by the recipient of the wire transfer, before the wire is sent. These forms are found under Tax Forms on the Finance website. The instructions on how to complete the W-9, W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E forms are included with the forms.
  • Email all documentation to Cash Management (Cashmgmt@luc.edu)

***The desired transaction date is the date the funds will be initiated. For domestic wire transfers (USA) the date of initiation and the date the funds are received in the Beneficiary Account is the same date. A foreign wire transfer may take two to three days to arrive in the Beneficiary Account, depending upon the country the funds are being transferred to.
