In March 2022 the Central Bank made changes to Pix transfers. Now, what is determined is that the limit for a transfer on Pix is ​​equal to the ceiling that the institution determines for money transfers via TED. Until February 28 of this year, this mode of operation was limited to 50% of the maximum amount for TED released by banks.

In the case of Itaú, the DOC transfer goes up to R$4.999,99, from an Itaú account to an account at another bank. There is no minimum transfer limit. From R$ 5 thousand, the amount is transferred as TED.

There is no minimum amount for TED and the maximum amount varies depending on your daily limit for internet or app transfers. If the amount exceeds this limit, you can make the transfer at your agency.
