For purchases below £5,000 the sale of gold bars can be completed without providing any form of identification. We do ask for your name and address for the invoice. However, if more than £5,000 is being spent in a single transaction or more than £10,000 in multiple transactions over a 12month period then you will be required to provide two forms of identification. This identification needs to be in the form of one piece of photographic evidence (passport or drivers licence) and two utility bills, to prove your address (utility bills, bank statement, credit card statement).
However, rather than sending the originals of these documents, we recommend you send certified copies. You can get copies certified either by an authority figure (Lawyer, Doctor, Accountant, Policeman) or you can take your original documents plus a copy of each document to the Post Office who will certify them for you for a small fee.
We are happy to deal with a wide variety of companies and funds.
We require photo identification and two proofs of address from all of the parties involved (e.g directors of the company or trustees of a trust fund). We will also need any documentation that relates to the administration of the institution (e.g the VAT certificate).
If you wish to invest on behalf of a Company, instead of the standard ID verification, please download and complete the Company Investment: Administrator Authorisation form and return it to us along with the documents listed on the form.
