Sending Money to Brazil

Currency Options to consider

A Route
 
The process would involve the client setting up a bank account with our counter-party in Brazil which would enable them to register their trade with the Brazilian Central Bank and have the funds exchanged into a currency of your choice.
 
In order to open the account, they would need to provide the necessary documents so that their deal can be registered with the Brazilian Central Bank, such as the source of funds and reason for the transaction.
                                                                                                                                                                                                
If we take a property sale for example, normally the client would need to demonstrate how they paid for the property and if the funds were initially brought in via a bank transfer. If that is the case then details of that transfer would normally be required before the client would be able to send the funds using the Brazilian Central Bank.
 
Any tax should be taken care of as a first priority before any exchange. We do not assist the clients directly with tax advice.
 
Once they have fulfilled their tax obligations and the account has been opened they can have the funds registered with the Central Bank for exchange and at this point, they will receive the rate of exchange. Once the exchange has taken place the funds will be sent directly to an account of their choice.   
 
B Route
 
We would set up a trading account in the normal way with Aston.
 
Aston would agree on a rate of exchange for BRL either from or to another currency with the client.
 
Once we have agreed on a rate we will send them a trade confirmation with details of a local account in Brazil to pay the funds to or our segregated client accounts in London depending on whether they are buying or selling BRL.
 
On receipt of their funds, we will make the same day payment to the account details which they provide to us.
 
This route is useful for low volume amounts ( up to £50,000 a time)as it tends to offer a much better rate of exchange than banks offer via the A route, especially when buying BRL.
 
Any tax should be taken care of as a first priority before any exchange. We do not assist the clients directly with tax advice.

Limit Order
Limit Orders are when you have a target exchange rate and timing isn’t crucial
Placing a Limit Order means that when the market moves to your specified rate, our system automatically purchases your currency, letting us work as your eyes and ears in the market.

Stop Loss
Stop Loss is when you don’t want to trade below a certain exchange rate and timing isn’t crucial
This allows you to protect yourself against adverse market movement by putting a lower limit on the price at which you are willing to buy. If the market drops to that level, you have guaranteed that you will get an exchange rate no lower than the one you specified.
