Why do you need to validate my bank details?

Updated a month ago

To protect you from fraud, we need to validate your bank details, both when you initially sign up to invest with Zopa and if you ever change your nominated bank account with us.

We will ask for a full bank statement (dated within the last 3 months) with transactions showing your name, account number and sort code. This can be a scan, or a clear photograph taken with your phone.

We can only accept a scan or clear photo of a bank statement. The following are not valid submissions:

  • Images of bank cards & cheque books
  • Screen shots from banking app or internet banking
  • Photographs of computer screens showing internet banking
  • Account balances or Account summary pages
