Upon opening your account, you will need to select the colour of your physical debit card and then a virtual card will be issued automatically.
You need to verify your identity in order to use your Tally account.
This policy is in line with a banking regulation commonly known as 'Know Your Customer’ (KYC) and is the process of a business verifying the identity of its clients.
It is simply an anti-corruption and fraud measure.
Here is some tips to ensure the identity verification goes smoothly:
- Take a clear picture of your identity document, where every single detail is readable without any blur
- Take the photos somewhere brightly lit with natural light
- Make sure your flash is switched off to avoid glare on your documents
- Make sure the details on your Tally profile match the details on your legal document
- Do not take a picture of a picture/copy
Using Your Tally App
The rate at which Tally is converted in and out of fiat currencies such as GBP(£), EUR(€) and USD($) is directly taken from the global interbank prices for spot gold.
There are currently two ways of buying Tally. The first and the easiest for our UK based customers is to transfer funds to the Tally banking account details, which can be found in the 'Buy Tally' tab, from any other personal bank account held in your name.
It is important that your personal Tally reference code, which can be found in the 'Buy Tally' tab, is included as the transfer reference, otherwise your deposit may be delayed, or returned. When the funds arrive with us they will be automatically converted into Tally at the prevailing rate. We aim to process all GBP deposits in 1 working day.
The second way to buy Tally is to deposit Euros directly into your IBAN. This deposit must be done from a Euro account based in mainland Europe, rather than a UK based Euro account. While Tally will not charge you a fee for a Euro IBAN transfer, it is important to consider the possibility of the origin bank charging you fees, and as such we cannot guarantee that the amount that was sent will be equal to the amount deposited in your account.
To log out, click ‘Account’ at the top right of screen when on the ‘Home’ tab. The option to ‘Log Out’ is present below ‘Invite Friends’.
To close your Tally account, you should contact Tally Support via chat, email or telephone so that we can assist you with this process.
Your Tally account is individual to you. In the near future we plan to offer direct debit and other banking facilities.
UK domestic Sterling (£) transfers through Faster Payments normally arrive with us within 2 hours - once funds have cleared into our bank accounts, they will be converted into Tally during business hours (Monday-Friday) on an hourly basis at the prevailing rate.
For Euro (€) payments, please note there is a 3pm cut-off time for same day processing. Requests received after this time will be processed the following banking day. As a general rule, sending Euros (€) outside the UK using SEPA may take 1 to 2 banking days to be credited to the beneficiary bank.
For our initial launch period, daily limits will be implemented on all accounts.
There will be a daily limit of £250 on ATM withdrawals, and a daily limit of £1,000.
The daily maximum card spend is £1,000.
There will be no daily limits on deposits and withdrawals to and from your account.
These will be available within the app very soon.
These will be in a PDF format and you will be able to print them if you would like a physical copy.
You can transfer Tally to anyone who has a Tally account. Select the ‘Pay’ option in the App (4th tab), and under ‘Create a New Payee’ select the ‘TALLY’ option. You can then set the amount you want to pay and make the payment by entering the email and Tally ID of the desired recipient.
Yes, as long as that person has a Tally account. You will need their email and their Tally ID to send Tally to them.
Some purchases at merchants take more time than others. For instance, TFL fees may only be charged at the end of a day. Typically, the balance should update itself within 24 hours. Failing that, you are always welcome to contact Tally Support for more help.
There is no charge for sending Tally to another Tally account holder.
We do not currently accept Bitcoin or any other forms of cryptocurrency payments in exchange for Tally.
Yes. Upon opening a Tally account, you will be allocated a unique account number.
To activate or deactivate notifications, click ‘Account’ at the top right of screen when on the ‘Home’ tab. The ‘Notifications’ tab should be present below ‘Personal Details’. From here, you can activate or deactivate the notifications you receive from Tally.
If you move address, please contact us via email@example.com or through the in-app chat function with details of your new address as well as proof of this address change.
This proof of address can either be in the form of an updated driver’s license, or another document dated in the last 3 months with your name and address clearly stated, such as a bank statement or utility bill.
Your Tally Card
A debit card like Tally is linked to an individual banking account and card in your name. A prepaid card is when money is loaded on to a card which is not always in your name and has less consumer protection. Also, debit cards are more widely accepted than prepaid cards.
If your phone has been lost or stolen, we advise you contact our support team via email or call us so we can lock your account for you.
If your phone and card have been lost or stolen, you can log in to your account on another device (such as the phone of a friend or family member) and immediately lock your card using the in app card locking function, then contact Tally support via email or call us at 0203 858 0373 so that we can assist you and help you order your replacement card.

You can withdraw money from an ATM machine. As your Tally card is connected to a Euro account you might get asked on the ATM screen make this withdrawal in local currency or Euros, we advise that you select whatever the local currency is.
This is the same if you are paying for something with your Tally card and get asked if you want this in Euros or local currency, we advise to use the local currency as well.

If you are in the USA use US dollars
If you are in China use Renminbi.

We also don’t charge any fees for using ATMs. Any costs incurred are a result of the ATM’s fees and not Tally’s. Make sure you are using a free ATM machine.

No. Tally does not have any cheque books.
With Tally, you own a physical asset (gold) held in a secure Swiss vault. That means there are storage and insurance costs, as well as operational costs for running the Tally platform. Instead of multiple fees and hidden mark-ups, we have a single, transparent charge of 0.1% of your monthly holding. This is calculated daily and charged monthly. Any holding above 500,000 Tally is charged at 0.05%.
