I am really confused about this one. When we are getting back the tax money under the Overseas Workday Relief, it is transferred to a non-domiciled account (e.g Expat account) in GBP.
To exchange this money to EUR for instance, which is the country of residency, it first has to go through a GBP account which might be domiciled in the UK which will then transfer it into Euro:
- Doing a transfer through Transferwise or Revolut or any other FX platform
Would that step be a problem? The alternative would be to use the bank which received it but they charge a horrendous 4% fee.
