How do you bring money back to the UK?

If you’re selling an overseas property, you may benefit from an international payments account

Whether you’re looking to sell a holiday property or return to the UK after some time overseas, it’s likely that you’ll need to transfer any currency income from a property sale back into pounds. Many Brits retire to sunny Portugal or Spain to enjoy their golden years, for example, but return home later on when they may require more care or family support. In those cases, proceeds from the sale of a property will be in euros, and will need to be converted back to sterling. Whatever your reason for sending money back to the UK, using a foreign exchange specialist rather than your high street bank could make a significant difference to the amount of sterling that arrives in your account. 

Plan ahead and shop around for the best rates and services

Just as you carefully planned your move to a new country, it’s worth planning ahead to make the most of your money when you return home. A currency exchange specialist can provide you with guidance on the market and the range of tools at your disposal for international transfers as you organise the sale of your property. If you’re worried about the GBP/EUR exchange rate, you can find out more about how a euro property sale price might translate into pounds, what difference the fluctuation in rates might make and how much you will incur in fees.

Take control of your international payments via an online account

If you’ve been living overseas for a while, you may have got comfortable with the exchanging money on a regular basis and may already be watching the currency exchange market. You can sign up for an online account and manage all your international payments and transfers directly at your convenience. You can also sign up for market updates via email and even track or target specific rates and receive an email and SMS alert when that rate is reached. 

Make the most of your money when you return home

Returning home to the UK has fewer unknown elements than taking the plunge to move overseas, but many things may have changed since you moved abroad. Understanding your choices when repatriating funds from a property sale, and managing international payments and currency transfers can help you make the most of your money.
