When sending money to China, keep in mind that different tax regulations may apply to sending large sums of money overseas depending on many factors including:

  • how the money is going to be used

  • how much you are sending

  • the source of the funds

  • if the money has been taxed elsewhere

 

For example, supporting family members by paying for living expenses is usually considered different from sending large sums of money abroad as a gift. See our Guide to Sending Money to Family Abroad for more details.

Wondering how to send money to China at a lower price? OFX is the smart, secure way to send money overseas. If you would like to send money to Hong Kong, or trade the offshore renminbi (CNH), please see this page.

Can you send Yuan directly to China?

In most cases, we can only convert your Canadian Dollars to US Dollars for wire-transfer to China. However, our business clients may be able to convert Canadian Dollars to Yuan(RMB) and send directly to China. Ask us more after your free registration.

How quickly can OFX transfer money to your Chinese bank account?

Generally speaking, you can expect your funds to arrive  in 2-4 days: 2 days for your Canadian bank to wire us the money and 1-2 days for OFX to convert your Canadian Dollars into US Dollars and transfer to your Chinese bank account (via SWIFT) where the Chinese bank will make the final conversion into Yuan.  

Is there any limit on how much money you can send to China?

Absolutely not. In fact the more money you send, the better the exchange rate we can give you. However, in order to give you the best exchange rate we do require a minimum of C$200 be transferred to China.

How much does OFX charge to send money to Chinese bank accounts?

The most we charge is C$15 for converting Canadian Dollars into US Dollars and sending USD to China for conversion into RMB (renminbi).  If you send more than C$10,000 to China, your transfer is fee Free. Our customers’ real savings come from our highly competitive exchange rates.  Compare our great exchange rates to your bank and see how hard they are to beat.
