Transfering money
Transferring money from the UK to the Eurozone involves, of course, a currency exchange. However, since the UK is (still) part of the EU, and the SEPA zone, shouldn't the transfers be easier than when transferring from, say, the USA or India? Transfer through your bank SEPA only forbids banks from charging extra for SEPA transfers. It doesn't force banks from using mid-market exchange rates. And quite understandably so, given that SEPA is meant to be single-currency. It doesn't concern itself with currency conversion. As a result, banks tasked with transfering money from a Pound Sterling account to a Euro account,...

SWIFT and wire transfers
Within the SEPA zone, consisting of 36 European countries, fees for bank transfers conducted in Euro are regulated - they cannot exceed the fees your bank charges you for a domestic transfer. This is in contrast to SWIFT (read more about the SEPA and SWIFT here) international payments, which can end up costing you up to €30 per transfer. Recently we encountered a customer who was sending SEPA payments, yet their bank was charging them €250 a day. How is this possible? The difference in fees Banks make no money from sending SEPA payments as the fees are either free or really cheap (20-50 euro cents per transfer). For example, when a person or a company in Spain sends a payment in Euro...
