Business/International/Foreign currency account 
 

Foreign currency account

Foreign currency accounts can help you manage your receipts and payments when trading internationally while limiting the risk and expense involved in exchanging currencies. Foreign currency accounts are available to any business holding a Lloyds Bank sterling business current account.

Overview

  • Simplifies payment and collection of foreign currencies
  • Overdrafts available in all major currencies (subject to status)
  • Reduce the risk of adverse movements in exchange rates

For more information fill out a request for further information form or download our Foreign currency account guide (pdf).

Any property given as security which may include your home, may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or other debts secured on it.

All lending is subject to a satisfactory credit assessment and we will need your permission to carry out a credit check on you and your business.

You should not apply for an amount that you cannot comfortably afford to repay now and in the future to avoid the possibility of legal action.

Key features

  • Foreign currency accounts can avoid the need to transfer funds to a sterling account when receiving monies from overseas.
  • They can be used to fund short-term cashflow requirements in a range of currencies.
  • Payment and collection of foreign currency funds is simplified.
  • You can reduce the risk of adverse movements in exchange rates.
  • We can arrange overdrafts in all major currencies (subject to status).
  • Interest is paid on qualifying credit balances.
  • Interest is calculated on the credit balance each day and paid half-yearly. Basic rate tax is normally deducted automatically from any credit interest we pay. Credit interest rates can vary from day-to-day.
