Company Account

Trade UK and international equities with our Company Account.

What is a Company Account?

A Company Account allows you to trade in the name of a UK limited company in a diverse range of investments, including UK and international equities, funds, ETFs and investment trusts.

You can authorise up to four nominated individuals to place trades and manage the account on behalf of the company, and trading can be done online or over the phone.

How to open a Company Account

To open a Company Account for a limited company, you need to complete an application form. Before you start your application, please make sure you have read and understood our Terms of Service, Rates and Charges, and Privacy Policy

Please be aware:

  • You must complete ALL sections of the application form
  • Each Director or Beneficial Owner who owns 25% share capital or more in the company must sign Section 6 of the application. 
  • Anyone else who will have dealing access to the account must also complete Section 6 and 7.
  • If you wish to trade in US incorporated stocks, you will need to complete and return a W-8BEN-E form. 
  • We require your country code when providing your telephone number. If you’re a UK resident, please enter “UK” in any box which asks for “country code”. 
  • All details on the form, including identification documents (e.g. bank statement) should be in English. If they are not in English you must include a verified translation, which must be certified by a regulated individual or entity. 

Benefits of a Company Account

Corporate accounts work in largely the same way as normal share dealing accounts – with some additional advantages. These include paying salaries in connection with pension contributions, flexibility in accessing certain asset classes, and the opportunity to claim back expenses, such as subscription fees against tax.

Please remember, the value of your investments may go down as well as up and you may not get back all the money that you invest. The value of international investments may be affected by currency fluctuations which might reduce their value in sterling. We may receive two elements of commission in relation to international dealing - Trading commission and our FX charge. Please see our Rates and Charges for full details of the costs.
