Expat Chat Ep 48 – How Can Expats Maximise Their Currency Transfers


Welcome to our forty eighth episode of #Expatchat where we discuss the latest tax and financial issues affecting an #Australianexpat.

In today’s Expat Chat we discuss how an Australian expat can maximise their currency transfers when transferring their money between countries and currencies.

One topic that we find all Australian expats love to talk about is foreign exchange – where to get the best rate, what the Australian dollar is going to do, should they transfer money now or later.

With clients in over 40 countries this is one of our most popular topics they like to discuss so we thought we’d share some of our feedback and experience with Australian expats everywhere in this episode.

Discussion Points on Todays Podcast Episode


In this episode we run through the following topics:

  • What is the best frequency to transfer money from overseas back to Australia?

  • How does dollar cost averaging work when making foreign exchange transfers?

  • What are the different type of currency exchange providers?

  • If they say no fees does this mean I am getting a good rate?
