When sending money to New Zealand, also known as a wire transfer to New Zealand, 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

When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the New Zealand dollar (NZD) may fluctuate based on the price of milk, due in part to the country’s reliance on its dairy exports. Also, because the NZD trades actively against the U.S. dollar, the strength of the U.S. economy could also play a role in NZD’s exchange rate.
