How are my fees paid?

Taken from your account as part of each transaction.

Your account admin fee (and postal statements & contract notes fee if chosen) will be collected from your account on the 26th of each month, or the next business day. If there is not enough money in your account to pay the fee, we will take the payment from the next credit to your account. If there are outstanding fees, you will be able to see the amount owed on your statements. You can then pay into your account as normal to cover the fee owed. Please note, we may write to you if the outstanding amount is not cleared and we may have to sell investments in your account to cover the fee owed.

Taken from your account at the time of the individual transaction. We will contact you if there is insufficient money in your account to cover any fees due.


Once you have made a sale over the phone or online you must send in your certificates so that they arrive with us within 5 working days of the trade being placed. If your certificate is not received within 5 working days, your trade will be cancelled after 7 working days and you will incur the late settlement fee and associated costs and charges.


To recover overdue fees on your account we may need to divest the equivalent value of your investments, plus an additional charge to cover the cost of the trade.

Gross interest on any cash you hold is credited quarterly to your account at the Bank of Scotland base rate less 3.5%. The Share Centre may retain the difference between the interest paid to you and the interest we are able to earn, as permitted by the Financial Conduct Authority.
