Money of substance
Tally is the name of both the banking platform and the unit of currency. Each Tally is one milligram of gold held by the customer and utilised via their Tally banking account.
The Tally banking platform mobilises the customer’s physical asset within the global digital banking system, whilst keeping the customer’s physical asset outside of the banking system.
Tally customers’ gold is held in Zurich, Switzerland, at an accredited international vaulting facility. Gold is an efficient and fungible physical asset ideal for the Tally platform and proven to maintain its purchasing power as a store of value over time.
Tally customers pay a monthly subscription to utilise their asset via the Tally platform. They do not pay transaction fees. The account subscription fee is 0.9% per annum calculated daily and charged monthly, which equates to £0.75 of Tally per month for every £1,000 of Tally held. The subscription fee covers all transaction costs, storage charges, insurance costs and Tally gives customers access to FX (foreign exchange) interbank rates.
Money you can trust
Tally is the customer’s allocated physical gold and through their Tally banking account, the customer is able to deposit, transfer, withdraw, or spend their physical asset seamlessly with the local fiat currency.
London Bullion Market Association (LBMA)
Tally customers’ gold is sourced from LBMA-accredited commodity brokers and stored with LBMA-certified vaulting providers.
Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
The Tally platform is run by UK-company TallyMoney Ltd (E-Money Directive Agent FCA Ref. No. 902959) under FCA-licensed E-Money Institution, PayrNet Ltd (FCA No. 900594).

Tally accounts are not linked to or limited by the £85,000 cover provided under the FSCS (Financial Services Compensation Scheme). All Tally is 100% insured for the full value of the customer’s physical monetary asset.
