Please remember that the value of an investment and the income from it can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invested. We don't provide advice so if you are in any doubt about making your own investment decisions we recommend you seek advice from a suitably qualified financial adviser. There will normally be a charge for that advice. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future.

What is a trading account?

What is a trading account?



A trading account – or share dealing account – is any type of investment account. It may contain cash, securities or other holdings.


Online trading accounts can be a great option if you have already used your ISA allowance and want to invest further.


It’s flexible – so you can buy, sell and hold funds as and when you want. 

Who is a Share Dealing Account for?

Who is a Share Dealing Account for?


A Share Dealing Account could be for you if:

  • you have exceeded the annual £20,000 ISA allowance this tax year


You could be eligible for a trading account if you:

  • are at least 18 years old
  • are a UK resident (you must not be a US citizen or tax payer)
  • understand the risks of investing


We don’t give advice. So, if you need help, you should speak to a qualified financial advisor.
