Terms and Conditions

Updated: 08 August 2022

Version 3.1.3

tally® relative to GBP (£) can rise or fall due to fluctuations in the global gold price.

TallyMoney Ltd (“TML”) is listed with the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”) as an E-Money Directive (“EMD”) Agent (FCA Ref No. 902059) under E-Money Institution (“EMI”), PayrNet Limited (“PayrNet”). PayrNet is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority to conduct electronic money and payment services activities under the Electronic Money Regulation 2011 (FCA Ref No. 900594). Payrnet also provides you with the e-money account (the “Account”) where the funds, which can be spent using the Card, are held. The services provided by PayrNet are governed by a separate set of terms and conditions between you and PayrNet which are set out at here.

A Tally Everyday Account with IBAN (International Bank Account Number) (“Tally Account”) is issued under PayrNet’s EMI licence. Deposits into E-Money accounts are protected through “safeguarding” and are not covered under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”). The FSCS exists to fulfil the fiat currency obligations of a bank to its depositors, up to an individual limit of £85,000, in the event that a bank goes into administration/liquidation. When fiat currency (such as pounds and euros) is transferred into a Tally Account it arrives via PayrNet. During this brief period your fiat money is protected by PayrNet under the process known as “safeguarding” – a regulatory requirement for all Electronic Money Institutions. Unlike a bank, E-Money account balances must be segregated from all other cash balances of the E-Money Institution and PayrNet cannot use your fiat funds for its own purposes or lend your funds to other customers. In the unlikely event PayrNet ceases trading, any money deposited that hasn’t yet converted to tally® will be available to the customer, subject to charges by an insolvency practitioner/administrator, and the process for distributing safeguarded funds may take longer than a claim under the FSCS. However, this would only affect you if PayrNet went into administration/liquidation during the brief period before your fiat money (pounds) is converted to tally®. Once you hold tally® you are no longer holding fiat currency so the FSCS does not apply.

When fiat money is sent to a Tally Account it is automatically converted to tally® and each unit of tally® is an electronic record of ownership and right to the value of 1 milligram of physical gold stored in a Brink’s vault in Switzerland, operated by TML’s parent entity, Tally Central Ltd, as a custodial service, with the added protection of a security trust structure with FCA-licensed trustee Woodside Corporate Services Ltd (FCA No. 467652 ). In the unlikely event TML or Tally Central Ltd ceases trading, all of the gold a customer’s tally® represents will promptly be sold and the fiat value less a 1% fee for the legal mechanism and process, will be deposited to the customer’s designated bank account. tally® balances are protected to their full value (with no limits), and customers would receive all of their funds less a 1% fee if TML or Tally Central Ltd ceased trading.

The Tally Debit Mastercard® (“Tally Card”) linked to the Tally Account is issued by PayrNet pursuant to licence by Mastercard International. Mastercard is a registered trademark, and the circles design is a trademark of Mastercard International Incorporated.

1. What is the Tally Platform?

Designed and built by Tally Central Ltd (“TAL”), a Guernsey-incorporated Non-Bank Financial Institution (“NBFI”) that is the monetary authority of tally®, and its UK-incorporated wholly-owned subsidiary, TallyMoney Ltd (TML or “us” / “we”), the Tally platform technology and ecosystem (“Tally Platform”) is a full-reserve non-fiat monetary system and platform that enables customers to use the value of London Bullion Market Association (“LBMA”)-certified ethically-sourced physical gold as digital money, called tally® (spelt with a lowercase “t”), that seamlessly operates with the incumbent fiat currency fractional-reserve banking system.

Your (or, “he/she/they”, “him/her/them”, or “you” as the “Applicant” or “Customer”) use of the TML smartphone app (“Tally App”) and tallymoney.com website (“Website”) is governed by these terms and conditions (“Terms”). TML works with multiple partners, including TAL and PayrNet Limited, to deliver its service (“Tally Partners”). For example, your usage of the corresponding Tally Debit Mastercard (“Tally Card”) that is linked to your Tally Account is addressed in this document but is also governed by separate terms and conditions (the “Consumer Cardholder Terms”), which are available in the Tally App and on the Website. You should read all of these documents carefully before you use the Tally App or the Tally Card, as these Terms, along with our Privacy Policy, form the legal relationship between you and TML, and govern the opening, usage and closing of your Tally Account with us and other services relating to same.

  3. The tally® in your Tally Account shows the weight of gold we are holding on your behalf (each tally® = 1 milligram). Your Tally Account also shows the equivalent fiat currency value available for making transfers out, payments or spending by using your Tally Card. When a payment out or purchase is made, you are giving instruction to sell the relevant amount of your tally® and complete the transaction by delivering the equivalent amount of fiat money through your Tally Account to the recipient’s bank account.

If tally® is transferred peer-to-peer, the relevant number of tally® will be deducted from your Tally Account and we will credit the same number of tally® to the payee’s Tally Account. In order to make a peer-to-peer transfer both the payer and payee need to have a Tally Account.
  16. Offers or promotions
  17. On occasion, we may introduce certain specific offers or promotions. These will be subject to additional, separate terms and conditions that shall sit alongside these Terms.

  21. When you make a payment to your Tally Account, tally® shall be purchased on your behalf equivalent to the sum paid at the prevailing market wholesale buy price for 1 kilo gold bullion bars, and credit your Tally Account with tally® (1mg = 1 tally®) accordingly. Conversely, when you sell or spend tally® via the Tally App or your Tally Card, TML shall sell such equivalent amount of your tally® and via PayrNet apply the fiat proceeds to satisfy the relevant purchase, payment or transfer.
  22. Customers who hold a Tally Account will be issued with a Tally Card. You can use your Tally Card to make payments using tally® thereby instructing us to sell part of your tally® and via PayrNet use the fiat proceeds to purchase the goods or services. If you are going abroad please notify us in advance to ensure that our system does not block your payments as potentially fraudulent transactions.
  23. Customers may provide instructions through the Tally App to transfer tally® equal to a fiat amount, through PayrNet to a bank or e-money account with an IBAN that is set up as a payee.

Any charges (e.g. international transfer fees) will be deducted from the proceeds returned to the Payer or the Payee’s bank account will accept the associated fees. TML accepts no responsibility or liability for other fees charged in other parts of the banking system (e.g. your funds being received by a SWIFT correspondent bank, prior to arriving at your bank when an international transfer is being processed).
  24. If a Customer makes a Payment Out, any fees owed to TML, or any compliance costs associated with your applicable instruction, may be deducted in tally® from the amount the Customer has instructed to be paid out.

If you need to change your password, you can do so within the Tally App by clicking “Forgotten Password” and inputting the email address connected to your Tally Account. You should check your Tally Account regularly for suspicious transactions. In the event you become aware of any such transactions or if you lose your Tally Card or it is stolen, you should “freeze” your Tally Card immediately using the in app card locking function, and contact TML immediately to order a replacement Tally Card. TML will not be responsible or liable if you:

  6. Customers may not inspect the gold purchased by TAL/TML. The industry accredited high security facility where TAL/TML stores the physical gold bullion that it holds on behalf of its customers, is not a retail outlet.

  4. TML 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 may have to pass this cost onto you.
  5. 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.

However, in the event that a Customer desires their Tally Account (and the linked Tally Card) to be closed, TML can give instruction to PayrNet to close their Tally Account.

TML may elect to close a dormant Tally Account but will use reasonable endeavors to contact the Customer, which for the avoidance of doubt shall not require TML to incur costs that are likely to be excessive in relation to the value of the tally®, if any, in the Customer’s Tally Account.
  2. If after 30 days from first attempting to contact a Customer using the details provided by the relevant Customer, no reply has been forthcoming, then the Customer will be deemed to be uncontactable and TML shall have full discretion to close the relevant customer’s Tally Account and, net of any fees owed including a dormant account closing fee of ten tally®, sell any remaining tally® in their Tally Account and direct via PayrNet that the fiat currency proceeds be paid to the last known Customer’s Bank Account TML has on file for that Customer. In the event the funds are returned as that Customer’s Bank Account is no longer current, TML shall be entitled to retain these funds. TML reserves the right to charge administration fees for TML’s endeavors to locate the dormant Tally Account holder.

16. Severability

  1. In the event that any of the provisions of these Terms are found by a court of a competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, such part will be severed from the remainder of the Terms and the remaining provisions shall remain in effect and thus enforceable.

17. Limitation of Liability

  1. TML shall not have any responsibility or liability of any kind for any losses or expenses whatsoever incurred by the Customer as a result of:
    1. a Force Majeure Event (defined below) or third party malicious damage or to comply with any law or governmental order, rule, regulation or direction or any default of a Tally Partner (provided the Customer has recourse against that Tally Partner) that causes any delay or failure to perform any of its obligations under the Terms (including but not limited to the release of funds to the Customer and delays in crediting tally® to the Customer’s Tally Account); or
    2. failure to obtain instructions from the Customer or any other party due to circumstances beyond its control.
    3. Neither TML nor any Tally Partner 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, loss of use of goods, loss of business or loss of reputation howsoever caused.
    4. No provision in these Terms limits the liability of TAL or TML:
  2. under section 2(3) of the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or
  3. for death or personal injury caused by the gross negligence of TAL or TML; or
  4. for matters that TAL/TML cannot legally exclude its liability from; or
  5. for fraud and misrepresentations deemed fraudulent.
  6. Subject to clauses ‎17.3(B) and ‎17.3(C) above, the aggregate liability of TML and any Tally Partners 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 tally® held in your Tally Account.

18.TAL or TML Insolvency

  1. CB and TML have entered into a security trust deed with an independent third-party security trustee (“Security Trustee”) pursuant to which TAL and TML has granted security to the Security Trustee in respect of its contractual arrangements with the its gold vaulting service provider platform provider and EMI (“Secured Contracts”). In the unlikely event that TML should cease trading, the Security Trustee would enforce its Security over the Secured Contracts and seek to realise the gold represented by Customers’ tally® and held by TAL/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 tally® balance 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 likely that if TML ceased trading that no further tally® would be issued.
