Question

How do I set up a Direct Debit?

Answer

First of all you need to choose which type of Direct Debit you wish to set up.  The following types of Direct Debit are available:

  • Direct Debit for Shortfalls & Fees - This Direct Debit will allow you to make purchases, up to the 'available to invest' figure showing in the 'portfolio and accounts' section of our website, without having to credit funds prior to making your purchase.  When your purchase settles we will then apply for the funds from your nominated bank account using the Direct Debit System.  In addition the direct debit can be used to collect fees from your nominated bank account if you wish.  If you don't have a Barclays Bank account you must send a bank statement dated within the last 6 months to enable us to verify this account*
  • Direct Debit for Regular Payments - This Direct Debit will allow you to make monthly payments to your Barclays Stockbrokers account of £100 or more.  If you don't have a Barclays Bank account you must send a bank statement dated within the last 6 months to enable us to verify this account*.  Please note if you are looking to make regular payments to your Barclays Stockbrokers SIPP account, you would need to use the form below.
  • Barclays Stockbrokers SIPP Direct Debit for Regular Payments - To make regular payments to your Barclays Stockbrokers SIPP account.
  • ShareDeal Direct Debit - Set up a direct debit for your ShareDeal (certificated dealing account) Please note that we cannot accept cheques pr electronic payments as verification of bank details for ShareDeal accounts.
