How much does it cost?

Certificated share dealing for UK equities is charged at 1% for the first £10,000, 0.5% for the next £10,000 and 0.25% thereafter, subject to a minimum charge of £20. All certificated trades will incur an additional £20 charge.

0.5% government stamp duty also applies to any purchase of UK equities.

An additional PTM (Panel on Takeovers and Mergers) Levy of £1 applies to any transaction over £10,000.

How does it work?

Once you have dealt we will send you a contract note confirming the details of the transaction.

On your first purchase you will be asked to deposit a minimum of 25% of the value of the deal by debit card over the telephone. You then need to send us a cheque for the remaining amount which must reach us three working days before the settlement date (usually ten working days from the day you deal).

If you are selling we will also send you a CREST transfer form which you need to sign and return to us with your share certificate. These documents must reach us three working days before the settlement date (usually ten working days from the day you deal). If all paperwork is received in order we will send you a cheque for the proceeds of your deal on the settlement date.

If you are dealing through our postal share dealing service please see our postal dealing form for more details on settlement for postal share deals.
