When sending money to Europe, 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 Europe at a great exchange rate

When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the euro may be influenced by interest rates set by the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve, because the euro trades most actively against the USD. Economic figures from the U.S. and Europe, will affect the EUR exchange rate.
