Since the Coronavirus outbreak, WorldFirst has closely monitored the global situation. Our priority is to ensure continuity of service for our customers while taking appropriate measures to protect our employees.

Given the increase in UK cases, we have now encouraged employees to work remotely. They are able to operate normally using well-tested systems, and our teams are committed to ensure customer service is not impacted, but if there’s any delay in your calls or emails being answered please bear with us.


Are you sending or receiving money from the UK as a business or individual?

Whether it is AUD, CAD or CHY, WorldFirst can save you time and money when transferring British pounds (GBP) – it’s as simple as that.


Cheaper international money transfers

How? We typically take a smaller profit on transfers than most high street banks which means that more of your money actually makes it to the UK.

It’s fast and easy to register with WorldFirst too, and once you’re a client, you can make transfers at any time with our easy-to-use online platform.

So what are you waiting for? This is your new way to make international transfers.

How it works


Secure a rate on GBP

Once your account is setup and you’ve given us the details of the account you’d like us to pay, we’ll quote you a rate. You can access rates either online or by phone.


Send us your money

When you’ve agreed a rate for GBP, we’ll ask you to send us the money by bank transfer before we make your transfer. The minimum we can transfer is £1,000 or equivalent.


Make your payment

Once we’ve received your funds we’ll send your onward payment in British pounds. Depending on when we receive your funds, payments may arrive the same day.

What we offer

Spot contracts

So called because they're done 'on the spot', allowing you to secure an exchange rate and make your payments straight away. A spot is the ideal option if you're a busy person and just need to get things moving as soon as possible.

Forward contracts

Like to plan ahead? Then forward contracts could be for you. They allow you to lock in exchange rates now and make your international payments later. In fact, you can secure a rate up to three years in advance.

Regular international payments

If you're sending money abroad on a regular basis, you'll want to set up automated payments. You can arrange this quickly and easily with us over the phone or online.
