Whether it’s for work, retirement or family, living abroad can be a thrilling, life-affirming experience. But there could come a time when you give up the expat lifestyle and come home. 

If you have been living abroad for a considerable amount of time, you may have built up a collection of assets — bought a property or put money away in a foreign bank, for example. Or even have a pension in your country of residence. 

When you relocate back to your home country, you’ll want to bring this capital with you. 

Although substantial, returning home and repatriation costs are often overlooked. Not only do you have to weigh in shipping costs and potential foreign income gains tax, but you also need to consider foreign exchange. 

The kneejerk choice for many expats coming home is to transfer their money through a high-street bank. Only, banks rarely offer the best exchange rates — and they often add on extra fees that are hidden from you. 

A considerable chunk of the wealth you may have accumulate abroad can be wiped out in these costs. 

Privalgo has extensive experience in this field. We help hundreds of expats each year save money, time and effort when exchanging money into their home currency.  

How? With leading exchange rates, solutions specifically designed for repatriation, and a bespoke personal service. 

As far as we see it, if you’ve been working hard abroad, you should be able to enjoy the full fruits of your labour back home too.
