Can a business invest through Zopa?

Updated 4 months ago

To manage queue times, we’ve put a pause on new money coming into the Zopa platform.

Yes, they can, but there are some essential requirements. The business must be:

  • A UK-based Limited company
  • Lending for investment reasons only and not engaged in the trade of money-lending

You'll need to create a normal account in the name and details of a controlling Director. Before you start investing, we'll need the following information and documents to make some checks and then update your account to a company investment account:

  • A scanned copy of your Certificate of Incorporation
  • Confirmation of legal structure and owners
  • Names of individuals owning more than 25%
  • Names of individuals exercising control over management of firm
  • Confirmation of who you'd like to instruct on the account
  • Two forms of identification for the controlling Director and anyone else who is authorised to instruct on the account. This needs to be a valid passport, driving licence or EU/EEA ID Card, along with a bank statement or utility bill dated within the last 3 months.

Please send all documents using the email address you used to set up the account.
