International Dealing

Our overseas share dealing service covers shares listed on the major US, Canadian and European stock exchanges. This allows you to invest in some of the world’s largest brands, such as Amazon, Facebook, Daimler and thousands more that settle in Crest.

When you deal the share price is converted into pounds at the prevailing interbank exchange rate, by a UK-based market maker. This therefore eliminates an FX charge most other brokers would levy against you.

Before you can buy US listed shares, you need to complete a W-8BEN form.

A W-8BEN allows residents of the UK and other eligible countries to save up to 30% tax on income from their US and Canadian shares. It is optional for Canadian shares but you will only receive a reduced rate of tax if you complete the form. Please note tax rules can change and any reliefs will depend on your circumstances.
