TallyMoney Ltd Customer Terms and Conditions
What is TallyMoney?
Additionally, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with our “Frequently Asked Questions” about the tally® product published on our TallyApp and the tallymoney.com website (“Website”). If you prefer, you may also call us on 0203 8580373 or write to us at TallyMoney Ltd, 22 NW Works,135 Salusbury Road, London, NW6 6RJ. Our response method and timing will vary depending upon the circumstances, but any response will be in English via the TallyApp, email, phone, text message or letter to your home address. If we communicate with you by telephone, you accept that your call may be recorded and may be used as evidence in any dispute between the parties. If any of your contact information changes, please let us know as soon as possible. Any payments sent to us to purchase tally® will not be covered by Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
Introduction and purpose of our business relationship
- The TML Platform is a service that, upon acceptance by TML of a user’s application to open a TallyAccount on the TallyApp, the account holder can buy, hold, sell or transfer tally® through the TallyApp. You accept that TML may generate revenues from your use of the TML Platform.
- For the avoidance of doubt, TML is not a bank and will not and cannot accept deposits from you but is registered by the FCA as an EMD agent. The tally® in your TallyAccount record the price at which the gold we are holding on your behalf can be sold in order to make a payment using the TallyCard. When tally® are sold the proceeds are transferred to an electronic account with an individual International Banking Identification Number (‘Card Account’) that can be accessed by the Customer using the TallyCard provided by TML. The Card Account has very limited functionality and does not have many of the features associated with a current account including that it cannot receive interest on the unspent balance, it can only receive funds electronically, and does not qualify for the up to £85,000 protection under the FCA’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme (‘FSCS’). No interest will be paid on tally® held.

If the information you provided expires, we may be required to ask you for updated information. We reserve the right to verify your identity by engaging a specialist information provider such as a credit referencing agency or fraud prevention agency to carry out searches. The information provider will record details of the searches whether or not you become a Customer. Other users of the services of the information provider may share these searches in order to prevent fraud. Scoring methods may be used as part of this process.

Using the TallyApp
- A condition of using the TallyApp and TML Platform is that:
- you accept that you are of sound body and mind, and are fully competent to use the TML Platform; and
- you therefore take full responsibility and liability for all transactions and instructions carried out on the TallyApp;
- All transactions on the TML Platform and TallyApp are recorded electronically using tally® as the unit of account. Each tally® represents one milligram of physical allocated gold. You will only be able to buy gold via the TallyApp if you have deposited sufficient funds of the relevant currency with us. Likewise, you are only able to sell gold that you are recorded as owning in the register of tally®.
- You acknowledge and agree that TML will carry out ongoing updates to the TallyApp, and as the TallyApp is updated, you will need to download any updates we provide to maintain the optimum operational functionality and integrity of the TallyApp.
Depositing fiat currency
- As part of your application to open an account with TML you will be asked to specify a single bank account from which deposits are made (‘Customer’s Bank Account’) which will need to be in the name of the holder of the TallyAccount. You can amend the details of this account through the TallyApp.
- tally® reserve the right to reject or limit deposits and withdrawals in and out of a customers account.
- Deposits from bank accounts that are not a Customer’s Bank Account can be held by TML until the account can verified as belonging to the Customer and reasonable supporting evidence can be provided by the Customer regarding source of funds.
- Where sums exceeding €10,000 (or such other sums as TML considers appropriate) are deposited by a Customer in their Tally Account, TML is entitled to suspend the relevant account pending the Customer providing details on the source of those funds.
- We accept no responsibility in the event that you mistakenly send us funds.
- We do not accept cash, cheques, banker’s drafts or unreferenced deposits as a means of crediting a TallyAccount, and only accept monies by electronic funds transfer pursuant to the procedure set out on the TallyApp.
- All deposits must take the form of cleared funds from a Customer’s Bank Account and be identifiable from their associated unique depositing reference.
- The TallyPlatform accepts deposits in Sterling and Euros. The prices of gold on the TallyPlatform are quoted in Sterling (‘Quote Currency’).
Peer to Peer transfers of tally®
- You can transfer tally® to another person’s TallyAccount. If tally® is transferred peer to peer, the relevant tally® will be deducted from the payer’s TallyAccount and we will credit the relevant tally® to the payee’s TallyAccount. In order to make a peer to peer transfer both the donor and donee need to have a TallyAccount.
Offers or promotions
- On occasion, we may introduce certain specific offers or promotions. These certain specific offers may be subject to additional, separate terms and conditions that shall sit alongside these Terms. In any case, any and all TML offers, or promotions may be contingent upon the Customer first transferring and depositing an amount into their TallyAccount prior to us crediting the Customer with the amount of tally® that is detailed in the subject of the relevant offer or promotion.
Using the TallyApp
- When you make a deposit to your TallyAccount, TML shall purchase on your behalf such amount of physical gold equivalent to the sum deposited and credit your TallyAccount with tally® (1mg = 1 tally®) accordingly. Conversely, when you sell or spend tally® on the TallyApp or through your TallyCard, TML shall sell such equivalent amount of your tally® and apply the proceeds to satisfy the relevant purchase or sale.
- Customers who hold a TallyAccount will be issued with a TallyCard. Customers can use the TallyCard to instruct us to sell tally® and use the proceeds to purchase goods and services using the same TallyCard. TallyCard can be used by the Customer anywhere that accepts MasterCard. Customers going abroad should notify us in advance to ensure their transactions are processed smoothly. Otherwise TML’s anti-fraud system may block their transactions.
- Customers may instruct TML through the TallyApp to transfer any cash balance in their TallyAccount to their nominated Customer’s Bank Account (‘Withdrawal Request’). TML, subject to clause 5.18 will execute such transfer instructions by BACS transfer within three working days. Any charges (e.g., international transfer fees) will be deducted from the proceeds returned to the Customer or the recipient bank account will accept the associated fees. TML accepts no responsibility or liability for other fees generated in other parts of the banking system by transfers to Customer’s Bank Accounts (e.g. your funds being received by a SWIFT correspondent bank, prior to arriving at your bank when an international transfer is being processed).
- The industry accredited high security facility where TML stores the physical gold bullion that it holds on behalf of its customers, is not a retail outlet. For those tally® holders wishing to exchange their tally® for physical gold, it is suggested the customer goes to a retail bullion dealer (they often provide secure storage also) in their local city and buy some physical gold using funds in their TallyAccount (or funds held in their traditional bank account). Gold in one’s possession and tally® in one’s bank account represent the same ownership and corresponding value but tally® gives functionality and financial utility to physical gold that gold on its own does not provide.
- If a Customer has made a Withdrawal Request, any fees owed to TML, or any compliance costs associated with your applicable Request, will be deducted in tally® from the amount the Customer has requested to be returned.
- TML reserves the right to conduct extra security and/or money laundering checks before acting on a Customer Withdrawal Request to preserve the integrity of its service and comply with its legal obligations.
- TML may from time to time impose periodic limits on the amount of tally® that can be purchased, which may change without notice.
Security and login
- Each Customer is responsible for keeping their login details, TallyCard and PIN (‘Security Credentials’) secure. If you need to change your password, you can do so within the TallyApp by clicking “Forgotten Password” and inputting the email address connected to your TallyAccount. Customers should check their TallyAccount regularly for suspicious transactions. In the event a Customer becomes aware of any such transactions or if a Customer loses their TallyCard or has it stolen, they should lock their TallyCard immediately using the in app card locking function, and contact TML immediately to order a replacement TallyCard. TML will not be responsible if you:
Furthermore, Customers will not breach or circumvent (or attempt to breach or circumvent) any of the security restrictions on use of the TML Platform and/or the TallyApp.
- have not kept your Security Credentials safe; and
- have input the incorrect information.
- You undertake to use your TallyAccount for legitimate purposes only. In particular, you undertake not to:
- engage in any activity which has the purpose or effect of causing damage to, or in any way hindering TML’s business operations or generating or increasing a liability on TML, including without limitation any tax, levy or duty collecting authority; or
- seek to manipulate the value of tally® in bad faith or in a manner which TML believes has the purpose or effect of adversely affecting the integrity of the TML Platform.
- You will not attempt to hack, make unauthorised alterations or introduce any kind of malicious code, or virus to the Website or TML by any means. Unless given prior written approval from TML, you will not:
- reverse engineer or decompile (whether in whole or part) any software available through the Website; or
- make copies, modify, reproduce, transmit, alter or distribute all or any part of the Website or any material or information contained on it.
- You will not disguise or interfere in any way with the IP address of the smartphone you are using to access the TML Platform or otherwise take steps to prevent TML from correctly identifying the actual IP address of the smartphone you are using whilst accessing the TML Platform.
- You understand and accept that any and all of the intellectual property rights including trademarks, service marks, trade names, copyright and other rights (‘IPR’) used or embodied by tally®, the TallyApp or the Website (‘TML IPR’) are and shall at all times remain TML’s property and the Customer shall not acquire any right, title or interest in TML’s IPR through the use of the TallyApp or the Website. Furthermore you undertake to us you will not adapt, modify, copy, reproduce, reverse engineer, publish, redistribute, sell, sub-license, exploit or otherwise part with or make any other use of the TML Platform or the TallyApp, the TML IPR, any data on the TML Platform or TML App or the concept of a tally®, the TML App or the TML Platform.
- All information, content, and material presented to Customers by TML, excluding information specific to a Customer’s TallyAccount, remains the property of TML. Customers may not reproduce, disclose, or circulate such information without the written consent of TML.
- The Customer acknowledges and accepts that he may have his/her TallyAccount (and corresponding usage of the TallyApp) restricted at any time where TML has reasonable grounds to believe that the user is compromising TML IPR or engaging in an activity which, in TML’s opinion, is potentially a threat to its operation or the smooth running of the TML Platform.
Custody of your money
- Any cash sent from the Customer’s Bank Account to us (‘Customer Money’) will upon receipt be used to purchase tally® from us. We do not at any time hold any fiat currency on behalf of customers.
- In the event that your TallyAccount is closed, your tally® will be exchanged for fiat currency and, subject to regulatory requirements, be returned to the relevant customer’s non-tally bank account net of any outstanding fees or costs due to us.
Custody of the Gold represented by your tally®
- TML uses third party vault operators and storage providers to provide secure custody of such gold assets equivalent to the number of tally® in issue at any one time, and by acquiring tally® in accordance with these Terms, you authorise TML to act as agent to arrange the storage and insurance of any gold purchased in conjunction with the issue of tally® to you.
- TML shall retain legal title to any gold purchased by TML on the issuance of tally® to the Customer. Such gold is held on trust for you as security for your tally®.
- TML will engage a member of the London Bullion Market Association (or any successor body) to buy, sell and store gold purchased on the issuance of any tally® (‘Custodian’).
- TML will pay the Custodian the fees for storage and insurance of the gold. These fees are included in the annual fees for the TallyAccount, which are detailed in the Fees, Charges & Limits Information Document.
- In the event of loss or damage of any gold held by the Custodian a pro rata amount of tally® shall be deducted from your TallyAccount and any proceeds of insurance relative to the amount of tally® attributable to you for such loss shall be credited to your Customer Bank Account or used to purchase further tally® at the option of the Customer.
- Customers may not inspect the gold purchased by TML. The industry accredited high security facility where TML stores the physical gold bullion that it holds on behalf of its customers, is not a retail outlet. TML has an independent daily reconciliation and verification process in place, conducted by the company’s auditors with TML’s London Bullion Market (LBMA) accredited precious metals brokers and vaulters, and its banking API provider.
- Gold purchased under these Terms will be held as weighed bars of gold in vaults operated by the Custodian in Switzerland or other locations agreed between TML and the Custodian from time to time.
- TML warrants that your gold is held as bailment for the sole purpose of ensuring proper safekeeping, and legal protection of your assets within professional vaults.
- TML’s storage partners also provide industry specific insurance cover to protect our gold holdings. This cover to you is included in our fee structure. TML’s storage partners provide TML with documentary evidence of this insurance, which TML is happy to publish knowing that some customers will want to confirm that existence of this cover and its terms.
- The quantity of tally® which is owned by TML’s Customers at any one time is fully backed by the gold stored with Custodians (i.e. if it was ever required, it would be possible to sell the bullion and distribute the proceeds amongst TML’s Customers in quantities proportionate to the number of tally® owned). Furthermore, each Custodian will keep the gold held in the name of TML on behalf of its Customers physically segregated at all times from assets owned by other parties. However, gold is not separated by the Custodian according to individual TallyAccounts and therefore the Customer’s ownership does not relate to a specific bar of bullion, i.e. it is not identifiable, but to a specific quantity of gold in a storage facility provided by TML’s Custodian.
- TML will follow the fees structure as modified from time to time as described in the Fees, Charges & Limits Information Document. TML reserves the right to change its fees, charges and limits structure in accordance with clause 8.3.
- The Customer authorises TML to deduct from his/her account and or holdings such number of tally® to satisfy any fees the Customer owes, and/or incurs.
- TML reserves the right to change its fee structure for any user according to its needs, subject to a notice period of 10 days.
- TML reserves the right to charge and collect administrative fees to cover costs incurred by TML assisting clients in extraordinary, unique and unpredictable circumstances. TML will retain complete discretion to decide what constitutes such extraordinary, unique and unpredictable circumstances. In such a scenario, TML shall advise the Customer of any such changes.
- We will pass on to you all bank charges and any other costs incurred or suffered by us or by your instruction, to reverse, recall or modify any payment except as the result of any error on our part. Some of these charges are levied by us to offset the costs we incur from our banking providers for making payments. If the banks we use charge us more to process any payments, we shall have to pass this cost onto you.
- Each fee that the Customer is charged shall be recorded for their records in their client statement, along with a reasonable explanation for its incurrence by TML.
- The Customer acknowledges their complete responsibility for telephone, satellite, TV, and/or internet service provider charges incurred by them whilst using the TML exchange market.
Changes in Terms or fee structure
- Subject to a 10-day notice period and communicated to the Customer via email correspondence and/or other forms of communication (including the TallyApp) where possible, TML may alter its fee structure and fee collection methods;
- TML may amend the terms of these Terms where it communicates such amendment via email correspondence and/or other forms of communication where possible. Where we make such amendments and you do not accept such amendments you may notify us that you wish to close your TallyAccount (see clause 17 Termination). If you do not notify us of your desire to close your TallyAccount then you will be deemed to have accepted any such amendments.
- TML is responsible for ensuring satisfactory company records and accounts so that relevant third parties can audit TML as dictated by regulations, and to preserve the on- going integrity of the business and mode of operation.
- TML will maintain and keep record of interviews or other interaction with you and other information collected by us or our Tally Partners from you for at least seven (7) years following the closure of your account.

- If the Customer does not contact TML within 30 days of holding reasonable grounds for suspecting that his/her TallyAccount has been tampered with, the Customer accepts and acknowledges that TML’s ability to assist with their grievance has been reduced, and their responsibility for investigating and possibly rectifying said grievance is significantly diminished.
- If the Customer does not inform TML of any tampering of his/her TallyAccount within 30 days of the first occurrence then, whilst TML will make its best endeavours to rectify the situation, TML will not be liable for any loss or damages whatsoever which may or may not have been suffered by the Customer.
Termination (including in the event of death)
- TallyAccounts are not designed to be terminated by the Customer, as it was intended that they could remain dormant for periods of time when the Customer does not wish to use the TallyApp or TallyCard. However, in the rare likelihood that a Customer desires termination of use of the TallyApp, TallyCard and their TallyAccount, TML management can close their TallyAccount. If you desire to close your TallyAccount, you should contact us via email or phone so that we can assist you with the matter.

Any fees owed to Tally will be deducted before we close your TallyAccount and transfer any funds back to you.

Actions for Dormant Accounts
- If a Customer fails to access his/her TallyAccount for 12 months and there is insufficient tally® in their account for the Annual Renewal Fee the TallyAccount shall be deemed to be dormant.

- Where any loss, liability, cost or expense (a ‘Loss’) is suffered by you for which we would otherwise be jointly and severally or jointly liable with any third party or third parties, the extent to which such Loss shall be recoverable by you from us (as opposed to any third parties) shall be limited so as to be in proportion to the aggregate of our contribution to the overall fault for such Loss, as agreed between all of the relevant parties or, in the absence of agreement, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction. For the purposes of assessing the contribution to the Loss in question of any third party for the purposes of this clause, no account shall be taken of any limit imposed or agreed on the amount of liability of such third party by any agreement (including any settlement agreement) made before or after such Loss occurred or was otherwise incurred.
- Neither TML nor any TallyPartner shall be liable to the Customer whether in contract, tort or otherwise for any indirect, special, consequential loss or damages, such as but limited to property damage, loss of profit and loss of use of goods howsoever caused.
- No provision in these Terms limits the liability of TML:
- under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
- for death or personal injury caused by the gross negligence of TML; or
- for matters that TML cannot legally exclude its liability from; or
- for fraud and misrepresentations deemed fraudulent.
- Subject to clauses 19.6.2 and 19.6.3 above:
- the aggregate liability of TML and any TallyPartners to you under contract, misrepresentation, restitution, tort, or otherwise, arising due to non- compliance with these Terms shall at all times be limited to the value of your holdings within TML; and
- Neither TML nor any TallyPartner shall be liable for Customer losses in value, profit, goodwill or otherwise, due to falls in gold prices or currency values; and
- TML holds no liability whatsoever for claims for consequential compensation (however caused) which arise in connection with these Terms.
- TML has entered into a security trust deed with an independent third-party security trustee (‘Security Trustee’) pursuant to which TML has granted security to the Security Trustee in respect of its contractual arrangements with the Custodian, Carrier, platform provider (and EMI (‘Secured Contracts’). In the extremely unlikely event that TML should cease trading, the Security Trustee would enforce its Security over the Secured Contracts and seek to realise the gold held by TML on behalf of Customers and return the net proceeds to the relevant customers. The Security Trustee will deduct 1% of the total value of each Customer’s gold to cover the costs of doing this (including its own costs) and by agreeing to these Terms you agree to the deduction of these costs. It is highly likely that if TML ceased trading that no further tally® would be issued.

- Even if we delay in enforcing this Agreement, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you, but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
- Nothing in this agreement is intended to, or shall be deemed to, establish any partnership or joint venture between any of the parties.
