How much money may I transfer abroad every year?

Every resident above the age of 18 has two allowances that they can use to transfer funds from SA:

  • Single Discretionary Allowance

As a resident, you may transfer a total of R1 000 000 from SA every calendar year. Please note that all card transactions while you are abroad are included under this allowance.

  • Foreign Investment Allowance

As a resident, you may also use this R10 000 000 allowance per calendar year. A tax clearance is required from SARS. This tax clearance is associated with the Foreign Investment Allowance and differs from a normal ‘good standing’ tax clearance.

You may also transfer funds abroad in excess of these allowances. Please contact us for more information.

The minimum requirement for transferring funds is that you must be in possession of a green bar-coded ID document or the latest ID card.

How does FinGlobal transfer a client's funds abroad?

We are licensed to do foreign exchange transactions through our strategic partner, Bidvest Bank.

We open a bank account online for each client. This account is exclusively used to do foreign exchange transactions. The client funds his account and FinGlobal facilitates the foreign transfer through Bidvest Bank upon the client’s request.
