Enterprises, sole traders and freelancers have all been affected by the economic downturn due to coronavirus. This has left many businesses — small and large — with questions on how to navigate the uncertainty.

We don’t expect disruptions to our service
Because we’re an online service, you can continue to use TransferWise as normal. Remote working has always been part of our company culture, so we’re set up to keep things up and running from home.
We’re also working with regional regulators, including the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), to make sure we have the best possible plans in place.
We’re ready should things change
Our teams are constantly monitoring any potential challenges when it comes to transferring to certain countries or banks.
You’ll see notifications in the TransferWise app if your transfer is expected to take a bit longer.
