Spot contracts for business

If you need to make an international payment straight away or with very little notice, a spot contract could be the perfect solution.

Spot contracts explained

A spot contract is the simplest form of international payment. We’ll offer you a rate based on a live market rate (known as a spot rate) and you can choose whether or not to transact then and there.

With a spot contract you can make a payment very quickly. As soon as you’ve agreed to a rate and your funds have cleared, we take care of the rest.
