When making bulk transfers from your bank accounts or financial services like Grey, you need to be wary of your transaction limits.

Transaction limits are the maximum amount of money you can either withdraw, transfer, deposit, or spend in a single transaction. Sometimes, it could be how much you can spend in a day, week, or month.

On Grey, there are limits on how much you can transact with too. This post will show you how to view these limits and share helpful information about account limits.

How Do Bank Account Limits Work?

Banks and financial institutions usually set bank limits. This is why it varies based on account levels, the country, and transaction methods. So, for example, a student account would have a significantly lower limit than a Tier 3 business bank account would.

Once this amount is set, you can only transact within the limit. Once you exceed that limit, the bank won’t be able to process any further transactions until it resets.

In unique cases where the transaction amount is alarming, financial institutions are required to notify regulators as part of the anti-money laundering measures.

Why Do Banks and Financial Services Have Transaction Limits?

Grey account transaction limits are important because they help protect the customer and the bank from any potential fraud cases. When there’s a limit, there’ll be a lesser loss incurred.

Limits are also a security measure to prevent money laundering. If there’s a maximum threshold, these services can better comply with regulations and prevent any illegal activities around finances.

How to View Your Grey Account Transaction Limits
