Please read the Simplified Prospectus/Key Investor Information Document (KIID) in addition to the information above. Further details available in the HL guide to fund prices, savings and yields. Loyalty bonus is paid tax-free in an ISA or SIPP but may be subject to tax in a Fund & Share Account.

HRMC believes that from April 2013 rebates of annual charges (such as loyalty bonuses) paid on funds held outside ISAs or SIPPs should be paid net of basic rate tax. We believe this is incorrect and are challenging HMRC's interpretation. However, in line with best client accounting practice and to save clients facing an unexpected bill in the future, we are currently paying loyalty bonuses within the Vantage Fund & Share Account net of an amount equivalent to the basic rate tax. If we are successful in our challenge we will return this money to clients. If we are unsuccessful we will use the money to pay over any amounts due to HMRC. Loyalty bonuses in the Vantage Fund & Share Accounts held by overseas investors, companies and charities will be paid without any deductions, as will loyalty bonuses in the Vantage ISA and Vantage SIPP which are exempt from tax.
