WorldRemit is changing the way people send money abroad. We’ve taken something complicated and made it simple. Tap the WorldRemit App or click our website and your international transfer is made – to a bank account, cash pickup, Mobile Money, or airtime top-up. We send to more than 110 countries and the number is growing all the time. Using WorldRemit is easy because we do the hard bit, connecting hundreds of banks, money agents, mobile operators and payment systems around the world. These were never designed to work together, but WorldRemit makes it happen. The journey is just beginning. We believe in faster, simpler, lower-cost money transfers. That means building beautiful products and better services for our customers.
Changing the world isn’t easy – so we only hire the most talented people. You need to think differently, believe in new solutions to old problems, and have the drive to make them happen. WorldRemit has grown at an average 50% year on year, and is now processing over £1.5bn of remittances on an annualised basis. The company just went through its Series C financing and raised $40m. The company currently employees over 350 employees and has offices in London, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and other locations.
WorldRemit’s Finance Function
Finance sits at the very heart of WorldRemit. In addition to the regular functions of every finance team (such as managing the general ledgers for the group, month end close, reporting, payroll, cash management, tax etc.) the team at WorldRemit is responsible for ensuring that the flow of funds from sender to receiver works in a timely, cost efficient and effective manner.
WorldRemit’s customers are sending over £1 billion of transfers a year from 50+ countries in a wide variety of currencies, either as debit or credit card payments or as bank transfers. That is between £4m and £6m a day that needs to be moved from the send country, exchanged into the required currencies and then moved to the 140+ receive countries for onward distribution to the recipients.
This is achieved through a network of financial institutions, banks, correspondents and pay-out agents. This creates both challenges and opportunities in the area of taxation. Challenges to develop and operate a global taxation structure that is legally compliant and opportunities to maximise its tax efficiency.
