6. How is the foreign exchange rate I pay calculated?

The rate you are offered by your dealer will be dependent upon a number of factors including:

bulletThe amount of money you are exchanging.

bulletThe time frames you have - whether you are looking to buy now, pay now or buy now, pay later).

bulletThe currency you are purchasing.

bulletThe exchange rate at time of purchase.
7. Are there any hidden charges?

With NWME there are no hidden charges.

There are no transfer charges, no commission fees and no foreign bank receiving fees.

Ø As part of the service, NWME provides one free transfer per trade.

Multiple transfers will incur a charge of £15 each.

8. I am thinking of buying off-plan how can NWME help?

Buying overseas property will involve one or more international money transfers throughout the purchase process. Buying a new development off-plan will require planning and you will have to make a number of stage payments during the property’s construction.

For Example

UK resident buying in Spain
A UK investor is buying a property in Spain

bulletA deposit in Euros is required and then further stage payments during the next 18 months, with a final payment upon completion.

bulletThe actual price of the property in Sterling will be determined by the exchange rate you receive.

bulletIf Sterling strengthens the cost will decrease, but if the Euro strengthens, then your Euro costs will increase (A stronger Euro means your overseas property will cost more in Sterling).

bulletIf the investor does not secure a rate of exchange in advance then the final cost of the property will not be known.

Removing risk with a forward contract

To remove this risk, NWME can offer a forward contract. This is essentially a buy now, pay later option. A forward contract enables you to fix a rate for any period up to 12 months. The exchange rate does not then change, regardless of market movements. A 10% deposit is required.

9. Can NWME help with overseas mortgage payments?

If you have a foreign mortgage our Regular Payments facility can help you. This service will take the stress and hassle out of your regular transfers.

NWME can secure and fix the exchange rate for up to 12 months in advance and plan your regular transfers in next to no time.

There are no bank charges with NWME and this saves you up to £300 each year. The process is fully automated so you’ll never miss a payment.

It is free to register and you are not obliged to trade with us but you can contact us for up to date market information as and when required.

11. Can I open a bank account abroad before I emigrate?

Yes. Proper planning and organisation could potentially save you thousands of pounds and means that you have more money to start your new life abroad.

12. How much money can I take when I emigrate?

The amount you are allowed will vary from country to country but is normally 10,000 of the local currency.

You should check this in advance.

13. What do your business services involve?

Fixed Tabs

The Phosphorus template includes a new "Fixed Tab" option. The template comes with 2 fixed tabs that you can enable and publish on your site. The great feature about the fixed tabs is that you can enter any text you desire and the text is auto flipped vertically! This is great for search engines to read your text and also saves the hassle of creating an image with vertical text and placing it on the side of your site. The tabs are published site wide and can have the following options that can be changed via the template parameters area:
  • Change background to any hex color
  • Change the border to any hex color
  • Change the font to any hex color
  • Set vertical position of each tab
  • Set each tab to either the left or right of the screen
  • Add a class to each fixed tab to enable s5 box or perhaps a lightbox or other 3rd party extension
  • Add a URL to each fixed tab so onclick the URL loads
  • Enter any text you desire (with no spaces)
