When sending money to Switzerland, 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 Switzerland at a great exchange rate
When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the Swiss Franc (CHF) may be influenced by interest rate announcements by Swiss National Bank. It might also be influenced by commodity prices, as the country’s economy is export-oriented.
