Onward payment instruction forms must be completed online by the client by logging into the Excel Currencies online system.

Whether or not clients receive a Contract Note a contract has been made upon acceptance by Excel Currencies of a request for Trade at the agreed exchange rate. Once a contract has been made clients are liable for the full sums due on the due dates. If you have not received a Trade Confirmation via email and/or SMS within 24 hours of your telephone call or communication to Excel Currencies and you would like one, then please contact Excel Currencies by telephone within 48 hours of the contract having been made. A Contract Note is not evidence of the terms of any Contract but a confirmation for your records. If you notice any inaccuracies please advise Excel Currencies immediately . Alterations cannot be made after a Trade Request is accepted. The Client agrees that all telephone conversations are recorded by Excel Currencies as part of our regulatory responsibilities and may be used by Excel Currencies as and when required. All Trades and Exchange Rates booked online or over the phone with an Excel Currencies Dealer represents a binding contract between Excel Currencies and the Client and cannot be changed or cancelled by either party unless agreed to in writing by both parties.
10. A Trade means each transaction to purchase and deliver currency for a client including, but not limited to, a Spot Contract and a Forward Contract. A Spot Contract means a transaction where the Value Date (which means the date stipulated by Excel Currencies for each trade on which the currency transaction matures) is two (2) Working Days after the date of instruction. Excel Currencies will purchase the currency or sell currency for delivery immediately once an exchange rate is fixed online or through an Excel Currencies FX Dealer. A Forward Contract is a transaction where the Value Date is later than two (2) Working Days after the instruction is accepted. A Working Day means any day between the hours of 08.30 and 16.30 when the clearing banks are open for business in England. No alterations or variations to the terms of the contract shall be accepted without the written consent of a Director of Excel Currencies.
11. There are two types of Forward Contract which are: a) Fixed Term Forward Contract: these comprise trades at fixed exchange rates for delivery at a specified date in the future, a Fixed Term Forward Contract guarantees an exchange rate for the delivery of the currency on a specified date in the future, and b) Time Option Forward Contract: a Time Option Forward Contract allows the currency to be made available between two predetermined future dates. A Time Option Forward Contract allows clients to draw down in full on the Trade within the designated dates. In both cases, the rate is fixed in advance.
12. Once a Fixed Term Forward Contract or a Time Option Forward Contract has been entered into (under the procedures set out above) no alterations or variations to the terms of the contract shall be accepted without the written consent of a Director of Excel Currencies. At Excel Currencies's absolute discretion a Director of Excel Currencies may agree other types or combinations of Trades with a particular client. Such discretion is determined on a Trade by Trade basis. Excel Currencies cannot guarantee to buy currency at any particular value or level. Where Stop and Limit Trade levels are agreed, Excel Currencies shall use its reasonable endeavors to place orders at the agreed levels but due to market fluctuation no guarantees can be given. Excel Currencies cannot guarantee to achieve Interbank rates on any Trade.
Stop and Limit Trades are contracts where currency is bought or sold at a date in the future where the conditions precedent for the Trade becoming effective are agreed between us at the date and time the order is placed. Stop and Limit Trades are used where clients want to protect against adverse market changes.
For the avoidance of doubt, clients should be aware that the value of currencies can fluctuate at any given time, and such fluctuations are beyond the control of Excel Currencies. Once a Trade and Exchange Rate are fixed then these cannot be cancelled by neither Excel Currencies nor the Client without written consent from both parties.
13. Excel Currencies reserves the right to cancel or amend any transaction resulting from but not limited to the following: technical faults with the online system, miscalculations, mispricing of exchange rates or any other reason whatsoever resulting from technical issues with the online system.
14. In the event of a Spot Contract, the client shall pay all sums due into Excel Currencies's nominated bank account on such date or dates as Excel Currencies might direct but no later than 12 noon on the second Working Day after the relevant Trade has been accepted by Excel Currencies. Time shall be of the essence in relation to such payment.
15. In the event of a Forward Contract, and where the client has not already done so, the client shall pay into Excel Currencies's nominated bank account, within two (2) Working Days of the contract coming into place, in cleared funds, a deposit of 10% of the full amount agreed for the Trade (or such other sum or percentage as Excel Currencies may specify/notify prior to the contract coming into place). Excel Currencies reserve the right to alter the percentage of the deposit requested up or down on a Trade by Trade basis. All outstanding balances must be paid to Excel Currencies no later than 16.30 on the working day immediately preceding the maturity date of the Trade. Time shall be of the essence in relation to such payment.
16. If Excel Currencies accept instructions from the client for a "same day" Trade, the client shall pay all sums due to Excel Currencies by no later than the time stipulated by Excel Currencies at the time the contract was made. All payments due and paid by the client to Excel Currencies pursuant to these terms shall be made without set-off, counterclaim or deduction whatsoever. Payment is not contingent on any event and for the avoidance of doubt is not conditional upon the client receiving a Contract Note.
17. Any deposit provided by the client will be held by Excel Currencies in a designated clients account. The client remains the beneficial owner of any deposit monies until such time as the Trade is complete and/or Excel Currencies incurs costs, losses, damages or other liabilities relating to or in connection with the Trade. Whether or not the Trade completes, Excel Currencies shall be entitled to set-off against the deposit monies in relation to any costs, damages, losses or other liabilities of the client against Excel Currencies, whether related to the specified Forward Contract, any Trade or otherwise occurring. It is your responsibility to maintain the value against future Trades at an appropriate level. We will notify you by telephone or email giving notice of any increase required, and such further monies must be received by Excel Currencies in cleared funds within one (1) working day. We will close out the Trade, even if you incur losses, if you do not respond within the timeframe given. Time being of the essence in this matter. It is for you to check your phone calls or emails. No liability will be accepted by Excel Currencies for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by clients as a result of any actions by Excel Currencies necessitated under this provision.

Neither cheque nor cash payments (unless instructed by the Excel Currencies system for specific low value amounts) are accepted by Excel Currencies and remittance by this method will result in increased administration costs to the client. The client will be charged an administration fee of Â£200 for the return of any cash payments, or cheques returned or shredded, at our discretion. In addition Excel Currencies shall be entitled to claim all losses, costs and expenses for the termination of any Trades on an indemnity basis. No Trade shall take place and no delivery of onward sums shall be made until Excel Currencies is in receipt of cleared funds. Clearance shall be deemed at the absolute discretion of Excel Currencies. The client should allow at least five (5) Working Days for funds to clear. Some banks have specific times when receipt and dispatch of electronic payments are permitted. Excel Currencies accepts no responsibility for and shall have no liability to you in respect of any delay in onward payment attributable to the late arrival of funds or instructions received after the specific bank's designated times in respect of electronic payments. Payments made by means other than telegraphic transfer will incur delays in clearing and Excel Currencies assumes no responsibility or liability whatsoever in regard to such clearance periods and may, if it incurs any losses, costs or damages arising there from, make equivalent claims for indemnity from the client.
19. Excel Currencies will deliver all purchased currency in regard to any Trades by electronic transfer to the designated onward account specified by the client to Excel Currencies. If Excel Currencies is not in receipt of satisfactory onward payment instructions from the client, or those instructions cannot be complied with for any reason, then Excel Currencies shall accept no responsibility and shall have no liability in respect of any delay or failure of such payment, save for the earliest reimbursement to the client of any sums due and owing. Any bank or other third party charges accruing for such transfers are the absolute responsibility of the client and monies may be remitted net of such charges. You should make your own enquiries as to such charges and Excel Currencies accepts no liability for shortfalls arising there from. We will deduct from any monies held on your behalf the equivalent sum charged to Excel Currencies for such transfers, whether related to the current or previous Trades.
20. If the client fails to make the required payments (deposit or balance sums) on or before the due date or the Value Date (whichever is the relevant date to that Trade) or if Excel Currencies are obliged for any other reason to cancel or terminate the Trade, then Excel Currencies may be obliged to enter into a matching trade. In these circumstances it is possible that Excel Currencies will incur a loss, damage or expense and if it does so then you will be charged for any such loss on the Trade. Excel Currencies also reserves the right to make an additional administration charge of up to Â£200 in the event of such matching Trade being deemed necessary (at the absolute discretion of Excel Currencies). In addition Excel Currencies may counter charge clients legal costs of up to Â£200 without reference to any court procedure or court awarded costs.
21. In the event of cancellation or termination, whether by Excel Currencies or the client, the client may forfeit part or all of any deposit or monies provided to Excel Currencies for that Trade. You hereby authorise Excel Currencies to deduct from or add to any future Trade instructions from you any sums charged or incurred by you for previously cancelled or terminated Trades. We may set-off any sums due from you to Excel Currencies under these terms and conditions from any monies received from or due to you. In addition we may, at our absolute discretion, charge interest at 8% per annum on a daily basis on any sums unpaid from the payment due date or Value Date (whichever is the relevant date) until cancellation of our losses by way of a matching trade. If Excel Currencies hold client monies for any purpose Excel Currencies do not pay and clients are not entitled to interest on any monies so deposited. Any unused balance of funds held on the client's behalf (after permitted deductions and set-off) will be refunded to the payee account of the client as soon as reasonably practical.
22. Failure to pay on time may be treated as a termination of the Trade by Excel Currencies with the consequent right to recover costs, losses, damages and expenses as set out under these terms.
23. Excel Currencies shall not be held liable for any loss or damages suffered by the client (or any other party) as a result of Excel Currencies's acceptance or refusal to accept a Trade Request.

In some instances, for Transactions funded from the Sender's bank account, you agree that Excel Currencies may charge your bank account for less than the amount of the transfer (i.e., for a transfer of Â£300, Excel Currencies may debit the bank account for Â£299.98), as part of our effort to confirm ownership of the account.

27. Other Charges. Excel Currencies is not responsible for any fees or charges that may be imposed by the financial institutions associated with your Payment Instruments.
