Share dealing charges (per deal)

Deals previous month
The online share dealing charge is determined by the number of deals you placed in the previous calendar month. The tariff you pay in August, for example, will depend on the number of share deals you place in July, and we count deals placed across all the Vantage accounts held under the same client number.

Please note: residual stocks, VCTs and PIBS can only be dealt over the phone.
Share dividend reinvestment

In each account, if you choose automatic reinvestment, any dividends you receive will be reinvested once they reach £10 per holding.

Overseas share dealing foreign exchange rates
Overseas shares covered by the Hargreaves Lansdown Overseas Share Dealing Service are traded at our standard rates (above) and can be traded online, by phone or post. They will be dealt at the overseas market price and converted into sterling by either Hargreaves Lansdown or a UK-based market maker, at a rate based on the prevailing interbank exchange rate to which a fee will be added by Hargreaves Lansdown or the UK-based market maker, as applicable, through an additional spread of up to 1.5%. The additional spread will depend on the size of the deal, as per the table below. This fee is to cover the costs incurred in facilitating the Overseas Share Dealing Service. Further details are available on request.
