Ways of Sending Money to UK from India:

You have primarily two ways to transfer money from India to UK:

1: Wire Transfer Online to UK (Swift Transfers)

2: Demand Drafts (money orders)

What is a Wire Transfer?

Wire transfers are a convenient way to send money from India to the UK. While banks can facilitate these transfers, online platforms like BookMyForex offer better rates. Banks in India typically charge Rs. 500 to Rs. 1000 for processing, and foreign banks may add a correspondent fee as well. In contrast, BookMyForex offers zero transfer fees and the best forex rates for your wire transfer to UK.

What is a Foreign Currency Demand Draft?

Demand drafts are physical paper drafts issued in foreign currencies. Demand Drafts in foreign currencies are accepted at banks in the UK and can be encashed there. The process of transferring money to UK via demand drafts is not recommended as it takes much longer than it does through wire transfer.

How to Transfer Money from India to UK with BookMyForex?

Nonetheless, if you send less than INR 7 lakh within a fiscal year, no TCS will be applied.

Frequently Asked Questions

When transferring money overseas, wire transfers are one of the fastest methods available. BookMyForex's website or app enables you to complete the wire transfer process quickly without ever having to leave the comfort of your home. Generally, it takes between 12 and 48 business hours for remittances made via wire transfer to UK to be successful.

As per RBI guidelines, outward remittances are not permitted in high-risk countries indicated by FATF (Financial Action Task Force). The list gets updated from time to time. For more information please refer to the information available on Fatf-gafi.org

You can carry out the transfer of large amounts of money to UK from India on BookMyForex in a hassle free manner. There’s nothing that you need to do differently be it in the case of a small amount or large amount. Just book your international money transfer order on our portal, mention the details required and we will make sure that your order gets processed within 12-48 business hours upon receipt of order confirmation.

BookMyForex processes the remittances via trusted and authorized Banks in India. We track the orders and keep you posted with the progress until the remittance is sent from India to the beneficiary's account. Your online transaction on BookMyForex.com is processed over a secure HTTPS connection and secured with the highest levels of encryption available. All credit card and debit card payments on BookMyForex.com are processed through a secure and trusted payment gateway and your credit card/ debit card/ net-banking info is never stored on our servers.

According to the new rule, a 5% TCS (Tax collected at source) will be applicable on all remittances crossing INR 7 lakh under RBI’s Liberalized Remittance Scheme (LRS). The TCS on forex transactions became effective from October 1, 2020. 

 

One of the main things to note here is that TCS (Tax collected at source) will apply only to the amount over INR 7 lakh in a fiscal year and not on the total amount. For example, if you transfer INR 9 lakh in a financial year, TCS will apply to the extra INR 2 lakh at a rate of 5%, and hence it will draw a tax of INR 10,000.

 

For remittances that carry the purpose of overseas education, TCS will apply at a rate of 0.5%, only in the case if the amount remitted is originating through a loan from a financial institution. For example, let’s say that the total amount is INR 12 lacs. TCS at 0.5% will be applicable on Rs. 5,00,000 (Amount after Rs. 7 lac is taken into account) & tax collected in this case will be Rs. 2,500.
