How do I open an account with you? How long will it take?

Individuals – Can do this online or complete, sign and return our paper copy. If you are a UK resident we can usually verify your identity electronically. We can also do this for certain other countries. Only if we cannot verify your identity, we will require you to send:

  • A copy of your passport or driving licence.
  • A copy of a recent bank or credit card statement or a utility bill issued in the past three months.

It is possible to open an account and make your first trade within an hour.

If you set up an account you’re under no obligation to transact with us. But you’ll get a great rate whenever you do use us.

Companies – Need to sign our terms and conditions and return them along with your Certificate of Incorporation or VAT registration. We can provide you with an online form that you can sign electronically.

If your company does not have limited liability, we will need a copy of a company utility bill, as well as a copy of the passport or driving licence of the person who will be authorising transactions.

We can open corporate accounts the same day we receive your documentation.

You will get a great rate however often you use us, and even if you set up an account you’re under no obligation to transact with us.
