Should I set up a Euro account when importing or exporting to the EU?


Setting up a Euro account is not necessarily as we can receive EUR from your customers in a secure client account, leaving you with the option of exchanging back into GBP – or a currency of your choice – at a time of your choosing to maximise revenue.

These funds can then be paid back to your business bank account, or held by us if you have further exchanges to make.

We can also make payments to overseas suppliers from this account, and if you are both exporting and importing there is a natural hedge that you can take advantage of.
