uk private pension in Jobs, economy, banking, business, investments Posted December 5 4 hours ago, saengd said: Your UK pension will incur a receiving charge by Kasikorn in Thailand, typically under 500 baht, but only if the pension is received by them in a foreign currency. If your UK bank transfers THB to Thailand, there will be no receiving charge. The exchange rate is nearly always better in Thailand than it is in the UK, all fees considered. An exception to that rule appears to be the UK State Pension which can be converted to THB at a favorable rate. Thanks for the info.
