How do I open a corporate/business account?

When submitting the application, please choose the account registration option "Corporate Account".

Along with the required documents for an individual account, corporate accounts—including limited liability companies (LLC)—are required to submit a copy of the certificate of incorporation for the business as evidence of business registration, and articles of organization, or a comparable official document, indicating that the signers are members of the corporation and authorised to set up the FXCM account.

Opening a corporate account is a simple process.

  1. Complete your application online in minutes.
    Once an application is received and processed, an account number will be sent by email within one to two business days.
  2. Submit a government issued photo ID for the Authorised Trader(s).
    This ID should also have the address listed on your application. Please note that a form of government issued ID and a proof of residence is needed for the Authorised Trader(s) and any shareholder or owner that owns more than 25% of the company. If one or more of the shareholders or owners is a Corporation, you will also need to submit full corporate documents for that entity. You may upload your documents to MyFXCM.com. Login using the account number and password emailed to you upon completion of the application. If you are unable to login to MyFXCM.com, you may also submit your documents as scanned images (JPG, GIF, BMP, DOC, PDF-no password protection please) to our new accounts department at admin@fxcm.com, or via fax to 1800 195 619 (Australia Tel) or 0800 450 209 (New Zealand Tel).
  3. Submit a certificate of incorporation, articles of organization and share breakdown.
