Why does my foreign transfer default to shared charges?

A condition of sending funds to a European Economic Area (EEA) country in EEA or non-EEA currency is that the charges have to be pre-defined as 'shared'. The cost of this has to be shared by the beneficiary, so you will pay our fee and the beneficiary will pay the other bank's charges.
