How do I set up an account on behalf of someone I hold power of attorney for?

If you hold power of attorney for someone else, you can set up a FairFX account on their behalf and we can speak with you about their account.

Please ensure that you register the account in the name of the donor, not your own name. Once registered, please contact our team at and email us:

  • Your power of attorney certificate signed by a solicitor
  • Proof of address and proof of ID for the person who holds power of attorney.

Once we have this, we will be able to discuss any questions you have about the account and help you to process payments as if you were the account holder.

If you intend to use a FairFX card on behalf of the person you hold power of attorney for, please order yourself a Linked Card from the account in your own name.
