What are the limits on outbound domestic GBP transfers?

If you're making a transfer in GBP to a beneficiary in the UK using one of our Company Business accounts, there's a value cap per transfer, as well as daily and weekly limits:

  • Limit on the value of a single payment: £250,000;
  • Daily limit on the total value of payments: £2.5 million;
  • Weekly limit on the total value of payments: £10 million;
  • Daily limit on the total number of payments: 2,000;
  • Weekly limit on the total number of payments: 5,000.
  • If you have instead a Freelancer Business account those limits are:

    • Limit on the value of a single payment: £250k
    • Daily limit on the total value of payments: £500k
    • Weekly limit on the total value of payments: £1M
    • Daily limit on the total number of payments: 50
    • Weekly limit on the total number of payments: 200

    If you go over any of these limits, your domestic GBP transfers will be processed as SWIFT (international) transfers. If you’ve already exceeded your free allowance for SWIFT transfers, you’ll be charged the £3 international fee.

    Please note, SWIFT transfers can take up to three working days to arrive at the beneficiary’s account.

    These limits are applicable to outbound domestic GBP transfers only.
