Can anyone recommend how to transfer money to England online from a Chinese bank account?
Dustón McCreary: Every time I’ve tried online it’s failed to be received. It’s best to use Western Union or have your Chinese bank send it.
Will Kennedy: Bank heist
Ralph Terence S Balaba: Try ctbc bank Www.ctbcbank.com.cn
Nicholas Lim: is it a large amount?
Kai’kane Ump Darcangelo: Yeah’ western union..lol
Philip Ringler: Citibank charges like 100 kuai for 5000 rmb. Cheaper than western union. Need an account in Shanghai and your home country.
Dustón McCreary: ICBC doesn’t charge to exchange currency, but will of course for a transfer.
Helen Giddens: Try transferwise
Jane Gao: Western Union is the bear way – But make sure the receiver surname and name !!! If any mistake will had trouble
Seth Ribe: Transferring is easy, converting RMB to pounds will be the bottleneck …
Oscar Tarneberg: Get an HSBC account in China, with a GBP account, and an HSBC account in the UK. You can connect them and easily transfer online between the two for £5. The problem, as Seth says above, is converting to pounds – you need a bunch of documents, including payslips, alien work permit, and tax forms (you are not allowed to convert more than you earn in a year to foreign currency).
