Skrill Ltd is registered with the Financial Conduct Authority as a crypto asset firm. What does this mean?

The Skrill Cryptocurrency Service is currently available in selected countries only. If you don’t see a Crypto section in your account, this means you can’t perform crypto transactions.

Skrill Limited is registered as a crypto asset firm with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The FCA is the UK’s financial services regulator, and anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CTF) supervisor of UK crypto-asset businesses under the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017.

This registration is required for UK businesses carrying out crypto asset activity for AML/CTF purposes.

Cryptocurrencies are complex, unregulated, without consumer or financial protections. Capital Gains Tax or other taxes may apply. Prices are volatile; only risk what you can afford to lose.
