So that'll be the TW Multi Currency account? Looks interesting. I never got around to changing my direct debits to Starling luckily. I see the TW account can also receive Euros, so I think it may be possible to still send the account Euros from Xe.com as all my calculations still make them cheaper than the others, then have the Spanish bills paid from that, or am I being a bit too simplistic?

I think you have a genuine complaint regarding the misinformation being given about insufficient funds. There is no excuse for that, I would be interested to know what information they based that reply on. A lot of banks have dedicated pages now about IBAN discrimination, they all seem to say the same thing though, it is the orignator's responsibility to ensure they have the correct information from the customer to supply to their bank, which appears to be be a full UK address now for GB IBAN numbers. If the local Ayuntamiento doesn't want to amend their forms, there isn't a lot that Starling can do about it and as we all know, Spain does things the way/ timeframe it wants to and not necessarily the right way. It is good news that Liberty Seguros now acknowledge they were in the wrong and collecting, hopefully others will follow rapidly.

I must confess, I was getting ready to change my direct debits to my Starling account so I could close my Sabadell account, bu this has made me stop in y tracks for the time being until things are running a bit smoother. I did pay my non res tax last month from Starling by bank transfer and the money didn't come back to me, so the hacienda aren't refusing cask from GB IBAN numbers.
