How do I register with Halo Financial?
It’s free and easy to register for a Halo account online or over the phone. Applications for private individuals can be processed in just a few minutes and business clients are processed within the same working day. Once registered, you can enjoy access to a dedicated currency specialist and begin making your money transfers and international payments over the phone or online.
How long do international bank transfers take?
The international payment processing period depends on both the payment type and currency. We notify our clients via email as soon as we receive the settlement in any currency.
How do I set up a beneficiary?
For a UK-based beneficiary, you will need their payee name, sort code, account number and bank name. For an international beneficiary, the payee name, IBAN number, BIC (SWIFT code) and bank name are required. The requirements vary for beneficiaries based in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, China and the Far East, but our experts provide full guidance.
