When you open your first account you'll pay a one-off £25 account opening charge - any products that you add to your existing account are free to open. You'll pay no quarterly/annual administration or inactivity charges. All other trading charges are below.
UK trades: £5 commission
Fund trades: Commission free
Regular investments: £2 commission
When you buy UK stocks, you also have to pay a form of tax called Stamp Duty or Stamp Duty Reserve Tax. This is 0.5% of the value of the investments you buy (1% on Irish stocks and 0% on Exchange Traded Funds).
Fund managers will typically charge an initial commission of anything up to 5%. In addition to this upfront cost there will often be an annual management charge of up to 1.5%. We offer a wide range of funds with discounted initial charges or an initial charge of 0%.
If you buy or sell any investments over £10,000 you pay a levy of £1.00 to the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (PTM).
Please remember the value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount you invest.
We don't provide advice so if you are in any doubt about buying and selling shares or making your own investment decisions we recommend you seek advice from a suitably qualified Financial Advisor.
