How to move your money back home with you

While a life in the sun is a happy ever after for many, there can come a point for others where they simply want a return to home and familiar surroundings.

If you’re moving back home from abroad, for whatever reason, you will need to be aware of how to transfer your money with you. Whether you need to send money from a property sale or make regular transfers between your foreign and UK bank accounts, we are here to help.

Our team of specialists can guide you through the foreign exchange market and ensure that your money goes as far as it can when returning to the UK from abroad.

 

Repatriating money from a foreign property sale

Most expats returning to the UK will at some point need to sell their property abroad. This is where we can help, as foreign exchange experts, and help you save money when you transfer the funds from the sale from your foreign bank account to your UK account.

We recommend reading our guide on how to sell your property abroad for further information on estate agents, taxation within the UK and currency fluctuations.

 

How to repatriate money from renting out your foreign property

If you have returned to the UK and have decided to keep your overseas property to rent out as a form of income, then you could protect your earnings from transaction fees and poor exchange rates when you open a moneycorp international payments account.

By receiving rent money into your moneycorp account, you can then transfer the funds to your UK bank account, enjoying a competitive exchange rate and low transaction fees. You can even lock in a prevailing exchange rate for up to two years of payments, meaning that regardless of where the foreign exchange market goes, you can receive a steady income of the same value for this duration. This option may require a deposit, however, and ensures you receive the same rate regardless of any upturns or downturns in the market.

 

Currency exchange for your foreign funds

Whether you’re transferring funds from a property sale, savings or overseas pension payments back to the UK, a moneycorp account for international payments can help you to bring more of your money with you.

Your account allows you to make payments in 33 different currencies, meaning we can cater for your FX needs no matter if you’re returning from Australia, Spain, New Zealand, South Africa or USA. In addition, you can even automate payments with a regular payment plan. If you wish to keep your foreign bank account open, then setting up regular payments from your foreign bank account will take all the hassle out of transferring funds between countries. All you need to do is speak to one of our expert dealers to set up your regular payment plan over the phone.
