Share dealing

Share dealing charges (per deal)

Online and mobile app

(Including UK and overseas shares*, investment trusts, exchange-traded funds, gilts and bonds.)

Deals previous month Dealing charge
0 - 9 deals £11.95
10 - 19 deals £8.95
20 or more deals £5.95

There's no charge for placing online deals within a Junior ISA.

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 HL accounts held under the same client number.

*There’s an added foreign exchange charge for overseas share deals, depending on deal size. This does not apply to trades placed in a Junior ISA. See our overseas share dealing page for details.

How to pay charges

There’s no need to remember to make any payments. Each month we’ll automatically take charges from cash in your account.

If there’s not enough cash in your account, we’ll sell some of your investments to cover charges. There is no additional charge for this.

How much cash you need to keep available in your account depends on your investments. We’ll suggest a minimum cash amount for you, which you’ll be able to see in your account when you log in.

Fee collection

Charges will be calculated based on the value of your chargeable holdings on the last day of the month, and then collected in the following month.

We make it as easy as possible by collecting fees automatically from your account. If we cannot collect fees from cash held on your account we write to you explaining your options. If you fail to respond we may sell investments to cover your outstanding fees.

Other charges may apply in specific circumstances - see the terms and conditions for details.
