Maximizing Value: Currency & Money Transfer Tactics for Portugal

November 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm WET


Maximise the security & value of your money transfers

With so many banking apps and platforms available, transferring your money can be done at the click of a button. Even for those most prepared, it’s often one of the last things on the list because it’s instant, right? Well, getting the best rate and ensuring the money will arrive at its destination on time isn’t always as easy as you may think, and missing out on securing a property or repercussions for late payment can be heavier than any financial loss. 


Another aspect to be aware of is how quickly small costs accumulate. You may be making several smaller payments for things like opening a bank account and getting your NIF (Portuguese tax number) to larger payouts for a deposit and first month’s rent or buying a car. Whatever the purpose, spending thousands, if not tens of thousands, is very easily done, and therefore the transfer fees and unfavourable exchange rates can really add up too.


This is an area that is so often overlooked, so we are delighted to be hosting currency specialists Spartan FX to share their 50 years of industry experience. Including:

  • The latest currency updates and what market influences to watch out for
  • Money compliances – for large sums or when several smaller transfers are made
  • Bureaucracy that can block or delay your transfers
  • Maximizing value & tactics for sending or receiving regular payments, such as your salary, pension, mortgage payments etc
  • The “free” currency transfer fees that can actually cost more
  • Reducing the risks associated with international money transfers
  • Which countries have tighter controls for sending and receiving money?
  • Real-life examples, learn from the mistakes of others
  • Q&A – your chance to ask your personal questions to an expert in the field


Remember that small shifts in the market may not seem significant, but when considering larger amounts, even the slightest movement in the exchange rates equates to thousands of euros, so do not miss this information no matter what stage of moving or planning you’re in or if you already reside in Portugal.
