When you become the beneficiary of a deceased estate in South Africa, the will's executor will contact you to arrange for the transfer of your inheritance to you.
He or she will ask you a series of questions about when you left South Africa, your status in terms of foreign exchange control and the administration of deceased estates act.
Transferring your South African inheritance overseas
If you live overseas and are the beneficiary of an inheritance or a trust from within South Africa, we know it can be difficult and frustrating to send those funds out of South Africa. South African foreign exchange regulations are complex and moving money out of the country requires expert knowledge and understanding. As fully regulated legal, financial and tax experts in South Africa, we can make sure you can get access to your bequests no matter where you are in the world.
We work with many accounting and law firms, deceased estate practitioners, administrators and executors, as well as trust companies assisting with the transfer of inheritances and trust distributions to overseas beneficiaries. We have been supporters of the FISA (Fiduciary Institute of South Africa) for several years now and many FISA members use our services to assist with transfers to overseas beneficiaries.
With us, you can rest assured that you’ll never be tripped up by red tape when transferring money from South Africa. We’ll also always ensure that we get you great exchange rates and exceptional service on every transfer.
