Guaranti, how to trans TL to sterling acct

Hi

I am trying to trans my TL to sterling account. Guaranti have told me to go on the Investment tab then Currency menu (but there isn't one). I then want to send the money to the UK via SWIFT.

Can anyone give me an "idiots guide" of how to do it please?

Thanks (in advance)

I want to transfer the money and close the account but I am in the UK and they say they need me to sign to close account, which I can't do so thought it was best to just trans funds back in the meantime

Re: Guaranti, how to trans TL to sterling acct

You need to change it to Sterling first on their website. Put it into your sterling account and then, as a separate transaction make the transfer. You will need to have either a swift code or an IBAN number for your UK bank account handy. Good luck

Re: Guaranti, how to trans TL to sterling acct

Its confusing it took me days to get through it as I had never done it before.

I think initially you need "to buy" sterling (using your TL) and it then goes in to your sterling account, as you cant transfer TL to a sterling account.

Re: Guaranti, how to trans TL to sterling acct

The buying and selling bit is fairly easy and second nature with a bit of regular usage, BUT I haven't yet tried to move any sterling back to the UK using the Swift account. I've had a mock run to see what problems there might be and all went well up to me putting in my UK bank Iban number, which located our bank, but I think if I am reading the internet daily limits correctly, we aren't going to be able to move more than a few hundred pounds daily, so a larger sum would take weeks AND as I haven't tried it yet, I don't know a what the charges are for sending from Garanti or the charge for receiving from our UK bank, assuming all goes well.
Does anyone have any recent experience of doing a Swift transfer of Sterling from Garanti to the UK to advise please?

Re: Guaranti, how to trans TL to sterling acct

Giranti will allow many thousands of Sterling to be transferred to the uk bank in one transaction.
I think we paid 50TL at Turkish end and maybe 15 at uk end.

Re: Guaranti, how to trans TL to sterling acct

Hi
My friend sold her property in Turkey and money was paid in to her TL account at Garanti. They wouldn't let them transfer it to Uk without a "wet signature" so she had to send a Signed letter to them before she could get her money. Think a lot depends on what type of account you have and maybe some branches are more pedantic than others. Hope you get it sorted without too much hassle.

This explains some of it but first buy s and have in your sterling account.

SWIFT

Garanti & transferring s back to UK

Re: Guaranti, how to trans TL to sterling acct

We transferred money from our Garanti TL account to our sterling account then transferred a small amount as a test to our Barclays account the charge was 55tl plus 20 we asked if the charges would change depending on amounts and were told it was a set fee.If it's a large amount be aware that the bank will let the tax man know because of new laws to do with money laundering.Also be carful when you change your money you can Stand to loose quite a bit. If we changed our money today we would loose 9,000.
