Frequently asked questions

How can I add money to my account?

You can add money to your account by tapping the ‘Add cash’ button wherever you see it in the app. You can add any amount between £10 and £50,000 as a one-off payment using a debit card.

How do you calculate FX fees?

Here's how we calculate our CMC Invest FX fee. We take the current rate of 1.321 (example FX rate) and multiply it by 0.005 (0.50%) to get our CMC Invest fee = 0.00661. We always round this number to 5 decimal points. The rate is then applied to the money you want to convert to get the actual fee amount taken by us. Here's an example

£100 (GBP) x 0.00661 = $0.66 (USD)

So, you'll get $132.10 (USD) from the simple FX conversion, minus our fee of $0.66 (USD), which is $131.44 (USD). For more information, read our commitments.

Do I have to pay stamp duty when I buy US stocks?

No, there’s usually no stamp duty to pay when you buy US shares, or any other foreign shares.

Do I have to complete a W8-BEN?

Yes, If you want to hold US shares, and you’re not a US citizen, you need to complete our W-8 BEN form. If you haven't completed this form before you try to buy US shares for the first time, you’ll be taken through our online form within our app.
