We offer several flexible and convenient methods for withdrawing funds from your account. To review method details, log in to Client Portal.
Withdrawals are requested via the Transfer & Pay > Transfer Funds > Make a Withdrawal menu in Client Portal. We allow for one free withdrawal request per month. Any additional withdrawals in a given month are subject to fees, as detailed on our website. Please note your daily and weekly withdrawals may be subject to a restriction based upon the security device associated with your account, as detailed on our website.
Withdrawal requests are processed only if the client has sufficient available funds and equity in excess of the initial margin requirement. Available funds is defined as the lower of trade or settlement date funds. If a withdrawal request is rejected, it may be re-enter once there are sufficient available funds and equity in excess of the initial margin requirement.
In accordance with anti-money laundering ("AML") regulations, all withdrawals will be sent in the name of the account holder. In addition, as part of our AML program, we no longer allow clients to make certain types of cross-border withdrawals and other high-risk patterns of cashiering. Visit our Knowledge Base for more information on funds transfer restrictions.
Under normal business circumstances, wire withdrawal requests approved prior to cut-off times are processed on the same day. Certain withdrawal requests are subject to additional compliance verification procedures, which may include a telephone call to you before approving the request.
Wire transfers are processed for same-day credit or next-day credit, depending upon the IBKR entity associated with your account. Please note that it may take longer for your bank to credit the funds to your account because your bank has its own review process for incoming wires.

We offer lower cost withdrawal methods that take longer to settle. Withdrawal requests made before the cut-off time settle within the settlement date window under normal conditions. Requests made after the cut-off are processed the following day.
Each method is only available for withdrawals to the local currency (i.e., BACS is strictly for withdrawing GBP to GBP accounts in the UK).
