Being Smart about the Safety of International Payments...

Each week, we transfer millions of pounds for hundreds of our clients (see our testimonials). It's all done highly effectively and efficiently through tried and tested processes and procedures. We focus on providing the best currency exchange rate, getting the payment to the destination account as quickly as possible and giving an outstanding service.

We've been trading since 2004, are registered with Customs and Excise (MLR 12198457) and our Company number is 5282305. Smart Currency Exchange Ltd is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Payment Services Regulations 2009 (FRN 504509) for the provision of payment services. All funds go from bank to bank and into a client account which is entirely separate from any operating bank accounts. Furthermore:

  • Charles Purdy (Director) has been in the currency exchange industry for over 20 years.
  • All client funds go into a client account in the Bank of Ireland (est. 1782) and are exchanged and transferred out immediately on receipt of cleared funds (Note: Accounts are set up in accordance with the FCA regulations).
  • All client funds are held seperately in segregated client accounts with the Bank of Ireland in the United Kingdom, with whom we have had a business relationship since 2004.
  • Smart is a member of the UK's Money Transmitters Association. The UKMTA represents Money Service Businesses registered with HM Revenue and Customs for the purpose of money transfers. This association was established to promote shared high standards across the money transfer industry.
