Are you ready for higher FX costs?

It is no secret that the finance world is expecting higher fx charges at some point if various proposed regulations in key markets come into play. But are companies prepared and do they even understand the real costs of their fx pricing now?

  1. Companies such as RationalFX have been reducing FX execution costs for a while now - particularly for SME importers. Any kind of Tobin tax near the 0.5% level he hinted at would have a direct impact on the import and export costs of these businesses - making it highly inflationary for consumers. So a tax designed to stop speculation and protect consumers from wild-eyed FX speculators would actually just put up the price of fridges and flat-pack furniture!
