Commercial Foreign Exchange Physical Delivery Service Agreement


1. Introduction
1.1 Global Currency Exchange Network Limited (GCEN) of The Old Barn, Oasts Business Village, Redhill, Wateringbury, Maidstone, Kent, ME18 5NN provides facilities for the purchase or sale of currencies for use in connection with a trade or business or for other commercial purposes (but not, for the avoidance of doubt, for investment purposes). GCEN contracts with clients for the physical delivery of currency only.
1.2 The applicant identified as the other party to this agreement below (“the Client”) wishes to enter into contracts for the sale and delivery of currency with GCEN in connection with its business or for other commercial purposes and has agreed with GCEN that all transactions shall be completed and carried out on the terms and conditions (“the Terms”) set out below.‘
1.3 The Headings in this agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect its interpretation.

2 The Service
2.1 GCEN’s services shall be limited to dealing and entering into contracts for the sale and purchase of currency (“Contracts”) with clients for commercial purposes. Such services include, without limitation to the foregoing, forward contracts, forward time option contracts and limit orders. Where such Contracts are entered into, the details will be recorded in writing and sent by GCEN to the Client at the time the contract is concluded.
2.2 GCEN shall unless otherwise agreed, contract as principal with the Client for the delivery of the currency in question and deal with the Client on an execution basis only.
2.3 The Client hereby agrees that all orders are placed in pursuance of the Client's usual trade or business; and that the Client is not acting for any third party; and that the Client will take physical delivery of the purchased currency upon payment of the full amount of the sold currency as dictated by GCEN on the occasion of each individual contract. In this regard the Client warrants and represents that the transactions are for “Commercial Purposes”, not for regulated activities as defined by the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000, and will indemnify GCEN and keep it indemnified against any losses suffered by GCEN as a result of any breach of this paragraph 2.3 by the Client.
2.4 GCEN will, at its absolute discretion, accept orders to transact for the Client, verbally or in writing by post or electronic transmission from any officer of the Client or any staff duly authorised to place orders in the ‘Authorised Personnel’ provisions annexed to these Terms.
2.5 When entering into any contract the Client shall rely purely on its own judgement. GCEN may from time to time provide the Client with information concerning the foreign exchange markets (provided that in giving such information GCEN makes no warranty or representation as to its accuracy, and hereby excludes to the fullest extent possible any and all losses suffered by the Client in relying on such information) but GCEN will not offer any advice to the Client on the merits or otherwise of any currency transaction or provide advice on taxation or any investment products or markets to the Client.

3 Instructions
3.1 In accordance with paragraph 2.4 the Client may give GCEN oral or written orders or instructions relating to a transaction for the purpose of the sale and delivery of currency. GCEN may at its absolute discretion refuse any dealing instruction given given by the Client without giving any reason or being liablle for any loss occasioned thereby. In the case of an oral order, or oral instruction GCEN may require the Client to confirm such order or instruction in writing but GCEN may itself confirm the order or instruction by fax to the Client, which shall be final and conclusive evidence (in the absence of manifest error) of the order or the instruction.
3.2 Once an order or instruction has been given by or on behalf of the Client it cannot be rescinded, withdrawn or amended without GCEN’s express consent
3.3 GCEN may (but shall not be obliged to) require written confirmation (in such form as GCEN may specify from time to time) from the Client of any order or instruction if:
3.3.1 GCEN considers that such confirmation is desirable or that an order or instruction is ambiguous; or
3.3.2.1 The instruction is to close the Client's account or to remit the Client's funds to a third party.
3.4 GCEN will issue a contract note in respect of each contractentered into with the Client. The contract note will be sent to the Client by electronic mail or facsimile and will not prejudice in any way the rights of either party.
3.5 GCEN may, but is not obliged to send the Client a monthly statement with respect to each account of the Client which shall include details of transactions during the preceding calendar month.
3.6 Unless the Client notifies GCEN of any error or omission within 24 hours of receipt of any contract note, settlement notice or other document issued by GCEN, the client shall be deemed to have agreed and accepted the contents of the document and it shall be accepted that it is an accurate representation of the facts of its nature and content and will be legally binding on the client.

4 Financial Provisions
4.1 The Client shall facilitate payment into an account held at a bank designated by GCEN, in the name of GCEN and designated as a Client Account (the ‘Transaction Account’) cleared funds to the value of the currency to be sold by the Client (the ‘Sale Currency’) in order to secure payment. GCEN may, in its absolute discretion and without assigning a reason therefore, request a deposit from the Client in respect of any order for currency, in which case the deposit shall be payable immediately into the Transaction Account.
4.2 The Client shall pay any outstanding amount of the sale currency into the Transaction Account in cleared funds prior to the specified value date (being the date set out in the contract note as being the date on which the currency becomes available and the Client becomes obliged to pay).
4.3 GCEN shall not be required to settle any Contract or to pay to the Client, or to the Client’s order, any amount in respect of such contract without GCEN first having received from the bank where the Transaction Account is held or from any broker or dealer with or through whom GCEN executes currency transactions (the ‘Broker’) notice to the effect that the amount of Sale Currency due and payable by the Client to GCEN in respect of the contract, has in fact been received.
4.4 All payments due from the Client to GCEN under these Terms shall be made in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding whatsoever. GCEN may deduct from the payment to be made to the Client such amounts as GCEN may be required by law to deduct in respect of taxation liabilities or as may be charged to GCEN by the Broker in respect of transfer charges.
4.5 Banks have specified times of cut off for the receipt and dispatch of electronic payments. GCEN accepts no responsibility for any delay in onward payment attributable to the late arrival of funds or instruction of payment relative to the cut off times of the designated bank.
4.6 In the event of any significant exchange rate fluctuations occurring between the date of contract and the value date GCEN may require the Client to provide additional funds to maintain the value and level of the deposit at the stipulated percentage rate on the original contract note. Such funds shall be paid by the Client immediately and in full.
4.7 The Client undertakes warrants and represents that all funds to be provided by the Client will be beneficially owned by the Client and will not be subject to any charge, lien or other encumbrance and the Client will not create or permit the creation of any charge, lien or other encumbrance over any funds so provided.

5 Limitation of Liability

5.3 Subject to the provisions of sub-clause 5.2 above GCEN’s entire liability in respect of any Event of Default shall be limited to damages of an amount equal to the direct loss incurred in connection with such contract, provided that GCEN's liability shall in no circumstances exceed the value of the currency as at the order date to be purchased by GCEN from the Client.
5.4 GCEN shall not in any circumstances be liable to the Client in respect of any Event of Default for loss of profits, goodwill, anticipated savings, or any type of special indirect or consequential loss (including loss or damage suffered by the Client as a result of an action brought by a third party) even if such loss was reasonably foreseeable.
5.5 The Client shall, on demand by GCEN, indemnify GCEN and keep it indemnified against all losses, damages and costs of any nature suffered by GCEN including any costs suffered by GCEN in covering, reducing or eliminating its risk, arising as a result of any breach of the Client of these Terms.

6.2 GCEN shall not be deemed to be in breach of theses Terms, or otherwise be liable to the Client, by reason of any delay in performance, or non-performance, of any of its obligations hereunder, to the extent that such delay or non-performance is due to any Force Majeure, whether or not this is notified to the client at the time of its occurrence.

7 Default

7.1.1 any default of payment by the Client

8.2 For the purposes of clause 8.1.1, a breach shall be considered capable of remedy if the party in breach can comply with the provision in question in all respects other than as to the time of performance (provided that time of performance is not of the essence).
