When sending money to France, 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.
How to send money to France at a great exchange rate
When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the euro might be influenced by interest rates set by the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank, as the euro trades most actively against the USD. Economic figures from the U.S. and Europe will also affect the EUR exchange rate.
