Stocks and shares ISA charges FAQ
How do I pay for my ISA?
Your stocks and shares ISA comes as part of the Standard plan for £5.99 per month, or Plus plan for £11.99 per month. You’ll be charged on the day of the month you sign up for a plan and that same day each month after.
Are there any fees to transfer my ISA to Freetrade?
No, we don’t charge you anything for transferring your stocks and shares ISAto Freetrade. However, your current provider may charge, so please check directly with them.
Are there fees for transferring away from Freetrade?
If you decide to leave Freetrade, you can transfer out UK or US securities as cash or stock. At the moment, to transfer any non-UK or non-US securities away from Freetrade, you will have to sell them first and transfer the amount as cash. When you transfer as cash you’ll be out of the market, so you may miss out on the ups and downs during your transfer.
Stocks can only be transferred as whole shares. If you wish to transfer a fraction of a share, you will have to sell it first and transfer the amount as cash.
There is no fee to transfer out UK securities or cash. Transferring out US securities will incur a cost of £17 per holding. We charge this amount to cover the fee our service provider charges us.
Your new provider may not be able to accept transfers of all securities you hold with Freetrade. It’s worth checking if they can support your stocks before you start your transfer.
Your future broker can send an electronic transfer request to us at: email@example.com.
What happens to my ISA if I cancel my Standard / Plus plan?
In order to cancel your Plus/Standard plan, you’ll have to close or transfer out your ISA first.
Can I have more than one ISA?
You can have more than one ISA. Which means you could have a cash ISA and a stocks and shares ISA at the same time. You could also have a few stocks and shares ISAs that you have built up over the years with different providers.
There is a catch though, each tax year you can only open or top up one of each type of ISA account.
So for example, you can top up one stocks and shares ISA and one Cash ISA in the same tax year. But you can’t top up two stocks and shares ISAs in the same tax year.
