  • The child can get information about their account form electronic banking channels and branches.
  • Until the child turns 7, the legal representative of the child withdraws and deposits cash and makes transactions on the child’s behalf. When the child turns 7, these transactions can be performed by the child if their parent/guardian gives them written consent to use the account independently.
  • When the child turns 7, a bank card can be ordered for the child or an Internet bank or mobile bank contract can be entered into. The legal representative of the child can specify the user limit for the bank card and Internet bank, limiting the amounts of single payments and daily and monthly transactions.

Execution of cross-border payments will be more convenient, fast and precise if you use the international bank account number IBAN.

The only acceptable beneficiary’s account number for cross-border euro payments between the European Union and the European Economic Area member states is the account number, which corresponds to the IBAN standard.

How to use IBAN for cross-border payments

  • Enter to the payment order the beneficiary’s international bank account number IBAN and BIC as the requisite information for the beneficiary’s bank.
  • Using only the IBAN for the beneficiary’s account number does not guarantee automatic processing of cross-border payments. In addition, the beneficiary’s bank must be uniquely identifiable. To specify the beneficiary’s bank, use the BIC combination.
  • BIC is a unique combination of letters and numbers, used for identification of the bank.

How to use IBAN upon receipt of cross-border receivables

  • Find the IBAN corresponding to your account number.
  • You can calculate the IBAN with the help of calculator.
  • Forward the IBAN to your foreign partner.
  • The foreign partner will fills in a payment order at his bank, entering IBAN as the beneficiary’s account number.

Estonian IBAN has 20 digits: A six-character combination of letters and number is added to the current Estonian account number. IBAN begins with a two-letter country code (EE for Estonia), followed by a two-figure check digit and thereafter a two-digit bank code and the Estonian domestic account number.

Example of Estonian IBAN: EE90 1010 1234 5678 9012.

Information about e-residency and opening an account

Our goal is to provide our clients with solutions that meet their requirements while adhering to the demands of valid legislation.

According to the Estonian Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention Act, upon opening an account in the credit institution or upon the first use of another service, credit institutions operating in Estonia are required to identify the person participating in the transaction or using the service while being present at the same place as the person or the person’s representative. Identifying a person without being present at the same place as the person is permitted only under exceptional circumstances and only for a limited range of services.

E-residency provides access to Estonian e-state services without requiring physical presence; it also simplifies contractual relations between persons. In light of the above, e-residency and digital ID currently do not enable opening a bank account at AS SEB Pank without going to a bank office. Digital ID does, however, enable you to use the bank’s services after opening an account.

Succession operations at the bank

Succession certificate

To enter into transactions with estate, the successors must present a succession certificate to the bank.

To obtain a succession certificate, the successors have to contact a notary.


Common disposition of successors or estate division contract

In general, in order to enter into succession transactions, all successors need to be present. If it is not possible for the successors to visit the bank together, please send the succession documents by e-mail at and we will try to find a suitable solution for you.

If the successors have concluded an estate division contract or any other contract at a notary, whereby the successors have divided the estate between themselves, please present this contract.


Minor successor and court’s consent
(The same principles apply to an adult successor with restricted active legal capacity)

If there are one or more minor successors among the successors, then the court’s consent is required for entering into succession transactions. To obtain the consent of the court, a representative of the minor successor shall have to contact the court.

The court will give its consent with a court ruling. Transactions with the estate can be executed after the court ruling has entered into force. For that purpose, we ask the representative of a minor successor to present the court ruling, to which the court has enclosed its note on entry into force.

If the minor is the only successor, then the court’s consent is required only if the representative wishes to sell the pension fund units or other securities inherited by the minor. In other cases, the court’s consent is not necessary.
 

Please send the succession documents first by e-mail at . Then, we will contact the successors within 3 working days at the latest and agree on a time for concluding the succession transactions. Please notify us of the branch where you would like to conclude the succession transactions or receive consultation.
