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

When looking at exchange rates, it’s important to know that the value of the Bulgarian lev (BGN) is based upon the fixed rate of the BGN against the euro. The Bulgarian National Bank (BNB) calculates and publishes the rates of the BGN against the price of gold and some foreign currencies. If you want to read up on the factors that influence the value of other currencies, head over to the Exchange Rates section of our site.

What to consider before you send money overseas

There are a few things that you need to consider before you send money overseas, but with the right online transfer service, it can be uncomplicated, swift, and secure.
Rates – In addition to exchange rates that fluctuate from one minute to the next, you also need to consider the fees that your bank will charge when transferring funds internationally. Banks often charge a fixed fee, along with a margin of up to 5% on the Interbank Rate. And all of that adds up to extra costs that aren’t really necessary.    
Timing – How long your transfer will take should also be considered. Most banks typically require 2-5 business days to complete a transfer, and you’re restricted to submitting your transfer orders during their business hours. That could really hold you back, especially when you need to send money sooner rather than later.

OFX transfers vs. bank-to-bank transfers

Why is timing so important when it comes to sending money abroad? Well, a shorter transfer life cycle means that you could get your money to its destination more quickly, and that means that you could also save money along the way. 
Here’s an example to put things into perspective:
When you send money from Australia to the United States via your bank, it could involve seven steps, starting with your bank account in AUD. After bank account processing, your money moves to the SWIFT payment gateway, SWIFT network, and the intermediary bank, where you might be hit with an extra fee. Next, your money would move into the SWIFT payment gateway before finally landing in the recipient’s bank account in USD. On a transfer over $10,000 AUD, bank fees and margins could add up to hundreds of dollars, meaning less of your money gets to where it needs to be. What’s worse, all of this could take up to 3 business days. 
When you opt to use OFX, things move more quickly, yet you can rest assured that the process will be secure from start to finish. After setting up your online account, you can send us your money from your bank account. Then, we’ll move the funds from our AUD bank account to our USD bank account. Finally, the money will land in your recipient’s bank account in USD. Just four steps, and potentially done in the same business day!
