Money transfer to country from UK

People transfer money abroad for a number of different reasons. Often it is because Brits want to buy a holiday home or make a property investment-although some people may need to send money to family or friends or make a purchase.

A lot of people do not consider currency exchange until the last minute, which often causes people to pay more than they should have. So what do you need to know when you transfer money from the UK abroad?

Sort currency as early as possible

Before Brits buy a property, product or service from abroad they need to consider the exchange rate to get a true reflection of its price. Therefore, it is crucial the exchange rates are established first to make sure you do not spend more than your budget.

Don’t be fooled in to thinking exchange rates are fixed

Many people assume the exchange rates are the same with all currency providers. As a result, many people go to their banks for the currency exchange despite banks charging as much as 4% more than other currency providers.

Consumers are encouraged to use a currency broker to make sure the best rate is received which can save consumers a lot of money.

Give your transfer plenty of time

A currency company should be able to advise you correctly regarding transfer times to make sure money is sent and received to the correct location. They will be aware of the various clearing times in different currencies and countries.

Using a bank is not recommended for individuals who need to make a fast purchase because they are very slow at processing payments overseas because of little experience in the area.

A currency broker is often the fastest company to transfer money with. They sometimes can send money as much as three days quicker than a bank.

Avoid an additional pay trap

Foreign banks will often subject Brits in to paying additional charges for an incoming transfer, so some people will have to pay a fee just for receiving the funds.

Currency companies can help consumer avoid hidden charges as they are experienced in transferring money around the globe and able to spot unnecessary charges.

Shop for the best rate

More often than not it is possible to get a better deal elsewhere so take the time to have a shop around. Overseas property agents may recommend a currency company that they know and whilst the rates may seem very good, the agent may receive a commission payment for this recommendation.

This potentially means the rate may not be as good as you think. To avoid running this risk take the time to have a look at different rates with different companies.

Be safe with your money

It is important you only deal with an Authorised Payment Institution. Some companies are not regulated to the same level that some independent currency transfer companies are-so make sure you only give your money to those that are FSA-regulated.
