Starting or buying a business in South Africa requires large amounts of money moved between South Africa and a foreign country. Money may still be transferred after the business has opened its doors. To get the best rates and advice, foreign nationals should talk to Intergate’s consultants about our South African foreign exchange service.
Foreign exchange in South Africa is different
South Africa is one of the few countries in the world that still has foreign exchange control regulations in place. These regulations govern the transfer of money to and from South Africa.
It is important for foreign nationals to know this because certain restrictions are placed on what can and cannot be transferred. Transferring money also require permission from the Reserve Bank.
Not being compliant with all South African foreign exchange control regulations could mean that funds cannot be recovered at a later stage.
