The TorFX Regular Overseas Payments service is a highly cost effective and simple way to send money abroad on a regular basis. The service is available for regular transfers of between £250 and £5,000 per month over a minimum period of 6 months. TorFX can offer you a highly competitive exchange rate on your transfers, and we charge 0% commission, saving you an average of 3% over the rates offered by high street banks. In addition, transfers are free of charge, compared to a typical charge of £30 for most banks. Once you set up the plan, you don't need to do anything, the payments will be made automatically.

All client funds are held in segregated trust accounts with our Banking Partner, Barclays Bank PLC, this means that we are unable to access these funds and they remain separate from our day to day bank account at all times.
