The Share Republic share trading platform is designed for beginners to learn to invest and for experienced investors to buy or sell shares. It will be a clean and easy to use site for best value share trading for all. That’s it!
Take an equity in The Share Republic plc, an SEIS company, and get a potential 78% tax relief on your investment. That is if you invest £100K, you can offset £50K against your income tax liablity, and another £28K against your capital gains tax. And if we fail, you can claim a loss relief off your income tax. A top rate tax payer could potentially protect a £100K investment with £100.5K tax reliefs according to Doug Richard from School for Startups* . A smart way to invest in your start up company.

A new breed of retail stockbroker
Why Gary Wright, CEO B.I.S.S. Research, thinks this venture has a good chance of success.
"Unlike the old sleepy retail stockbrokers Geoff and The Share Republic are building a business that recognises the needs of the market and is utilising modern technology and creative thinking to develop a 21stcentury version of stockbroking."
"I have been signed up to the ShareRepublic.com for almost a month now and am enjoying it immensely. It's a really easy platform to use and nicely laid out - I may enjoy it more if I make some money!" — Alex McGrath, University of Greenwich
