Get FICA'd

To get FICA'd simply by registering and filling in all required information.
Keep in mind that you will be the owner of the shares, so registering is just part of the process. Once you’ve filled in all the required details, you should get FICA’d within a short period.

Capitec Users are automatically FICA'd through the banking app. To set up your EasyEquities account on the Capitec banking app you can login, go to Explore, choose Widgets - that's where you'll find EasyEquities.
