FAQs

It's free to set up your TransferWise for Business account.

It's free to get international bank details and free to receive money using your bank details.

There's a cheap, transparent fee to convert between currencies - either in your account or if you spend on your TransferWise Business Mastercard® in a currency you don't have in your account.

When you convert money in your account it's always with the real exchange rate, and you always see our low, transparent fee up front so there's never any surprises. And if you spend on your Business Mastercard in a currency you don't have, it autoconverts the balance with the lowest fee, so you never have to worry.

TransferWise is an authorised Electronic Money Institution independently regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK.

This means we're required by law to keep your money safe by storing it in a low-risk financial institution - in Europe this is in our UK account with Barclays, in the US this is in our US account with Wells Fargo.

These accounts are reserved for customer money, this means your money is kept in a separate account from the money we use to run the business.

In the unlikely event TransferWise ceased to exist, your money would be paid back from this account, ie from Barclays or Wells Fargo, however it is not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and therefore is deposited at your own risk. You also cannot earn interest on the money in your borderless account.

Millions of customers trust TransferWise with their money. We move over £1 billion every month, and we take the safety and security of your money seriously.

The TransferWise debit Mastercard is issued by TransferWise Ltd under license by Mastercard International Inc. Mastercard is a registered trademark, and the circles design on the card is a trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated. TransferWise is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011, Firm Reference 900507, for the issuing of electronic money.

There's a small fixed fee of 50p / €0.60 to withdraw funds from your TransferWise for Business account to another account in the same currency.

This is the lowest we can charge to cover costs, and we're committed to getting the fee down over time.
