Once your Freetrade account has been set up, you'll be asked to link a UK bank account to your Freetrade account in order to add (and withdraw) funds.

Important, this account must be:

  • A personal account, rather than a company account
  • In your name, not a family member's etc.
  • A UK account
  • A full UK bank account rather than a pre-paid card, app or similar. 
  • You can then deposit funds into your Freetrade account with a bank transfer. You can start your account with £1!


Our cash deposit aren’t yet processed automatically so aren’t as fast as we'd like.

We will be working to improve this, but in the meantime it does mean that deposits will only be processed during working hours (7am-4pm, Mon-Fri), and in batches.
