Your Countingup account is provided by Prepay Technologies Limited (trading as PPS). As an e-money institution, PPS protects your business’ money through a process known as safeguarding.

Safeguarding means that your business’ money is kept separate from PPS’s own money and isn’t protected by an insurance policy or similar guarantee. Your business’ safeguarded money is not available to any creditors, banks or other third parties. This means that the money will always be available should you ask us to refund your e-money.

PPS is required to undergo annual independent audits of safeguarding procedures to ensure your safeguarded money is properly protected.

Safeguarding applies to all Countingup customers, with no defined limit per customer or account (besides our normal maximum account balance). This means that all the money within your Countingup account is protected.
