To launch your Freetrade account, you only need a few details. Right now you need to be a UK resident for tax purposes and have a UK bank account. EU expansion is coming soon!

If you're a British citizen, we need:

  • Your name
  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • NI (national insurance) number

The first three should be easy! You can find your NI number marked on your payslip or national insurance card.

If you're a UK resident for tax purposes but are not a British citizen, you can still open an account. We'll need these details:

  • Your name
  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • Your relevant national identification number (find what you should use here)

Usually, we can verify your identity from these details.  

If the process is unsuccessful, we might need some extra information. 

If this is the case, we’ll contact you ASAP with what we need
