Features of the borderless account

This account is ideal for businesses and sole traders who often need to send and receive international payments. Here are some of its key features.

28 currencies supported

This multi-currency account allows you to hold money in up to 28 global currencies and send money to over 50 countries worldwide. You can choose to transfer back to AUD when the rate is favourable.

Comes with 4 sets of bank account details

Not only does this account support 28 currencies, but you also receive bank account details for EUR, AUD, GBP and USD. It’s like having a local account in each of those markets.

Receive money for free

Because you have bank details for the AUD, EUR, USD and GBP, you can receive those currencies into the account for free. Just include the local bank details on your invoice for the currency you’ll be receiving, and the payee will simply make a local payment from their bank account.

Get the real transfer rate

TransferWise promises the real transfer rate to its customers. That means it doesn’t charge any commissions on the exchange rate when transferring between currencies. The banks charge quite large commissions on the exchange rates they offer customers, meaning their rate is far less competitive.

No monthly fees

This account has no monthly account keeping fees, no setup fees and there’s no fee to receive money.

Competitive transfer fees

TransferWise charges a transfer fee when you decide to transfer your international money back into your local AUD account. The fee is very transparent and is determined by the size of the transfer. It’s much more competitive than the transfer fees charged by the banks.

Top up your account for free

You can add money to your account for free via a bank transfer. If you top up your account by debit or credit card, there are fees applied.
