Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

COT (Cost of Transfer) codes are usually associated with wire fraud in many circumstances.

Generally you need to have the routing number or code, name and account number of the sending and receiving banks in order to send/receive funds.

There is no COT code for legitimate wire transfers.

Contact your UK bank for further guidance.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

even if it a legal transfer do I still need a cot code
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
why is a cot ode needed
Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 11 months ago

There is no COT code. As I mentioned, a request for a COT code is usually associated with fraud.

Your UK bank should be able to provide assistance in dealing with the Cayman Islands bank.
