Costs and charges illustration
To give you a feel for the costs involved, our cost sheet includes an illustration of costs you will pay, based on how much you invest and what type of investments you choose.
Payment of account & dealing charges
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 you’ve chosen our frequent dealing option, the first payment will be collected from your account when opened and quarterly thereafter. Dealing commission, regular investing fees and other fees will be taken from your account as part of each transaction.
What interest will be paid on cash?
Gross interest on any cash you hold will be credited to your account quarterly at the Bank of Scotland base rate, minus 3.5% (min. 0%). We may retain the difference between the interest paid to you and the interest we are able to earn, as permitted by The Financial Conduct Authority.

With some brokers, the more you invest and the larger your investments grow, the bigger your fees grow too. Here at The Share Centre, we do things differently. Regardless of how much you invest, you will be charged our fixed, monthly fee of £5 for a Self-select Stocks & Shares ISA.
