UK/EEA E-money licence

We offer the full suite of licences and passports to power your business in the UK and the EEA. 

Contis is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK as an electronic money issuer, passported throughout the EEA​.

We are also authorised and regulated by Bank of Lithuania as an electronic money issuer, passported throughout the EEA to enable continuing European operations post Brexit​.

We have permission to provide associated payment services including issuing of payment instruments, executing payment transactions and cash services on a payment account​. This gives our clients and their customers the ability to have an account, transfer money, make payments, and have access to an e-wallet.  

It’s important to note that e-money accounts are not covered by the FSCS. However, ​​Contis fully meets all safeguarding requirements, including segregating customers’ money from any other funds it holds – in separate safeguarding accounts. This way, in the unlikely event that Contis becomes insolvent customers’ funds will be protected against claims made by creditors.

  • Visa principal member since 2012​.
  • ​Visa certified processor, PCI DSS level 1 compliant​.
  • UK consumer credit licence
