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.

Where you have paid at least £12.50 in commission on a single trade, your next administration fee will be waived.

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. [1]
