@CharlotteIG..can you help with this please? I too seem to be charged full fees this morning on my Shares ISA despite making over 30 transactions in UK and US stocks last month? I am still on phone after over an hour..as I trade small considerations in multiple stocks it was the main reason I use IG. Thanks

Hi,

Do trades made in my Stocks and Shares ISA contribute towards the 3+ trades required to get the reduced commission of £3 for UK trades. I opened my ISA last month and made more than 3 trades, but was still charged £8 for my trades this morning.

Thanks

I am in same situation.  Still being charged full price not the £3 promised on signing up.  I traded a lot last month and made plenty of trades.  No answer from IG by email and just kept on hold on the phone.

I have the same question too. Its been a bad enough start to my IG trading as it is after this week, i could do without the £470 extra daylight robbery lol

The prices of most the stocks are already higher than most other online brokers as it is you'd think that would be enough.

Can someone please explain? I'll be moving onto another broker if im having to pay these high fees

Sorry to hear people are having problems with this. As you wait for an IG reply, I can confirm that I have an ISA and my trading last month has automatically given me the £3 UK and free US commission rates this month. I don't think the charges info on the IG website is clear enough but my understanding is that ONLY UK share trades count towards the 3 trades needed to qualify for lowest commission the following month. So, is it possible that either of you have traded mostly US shares and not met the 3 UK trade minimum? Just a thought, which I hope might shed some light. If not, I trust IG staff will respond soon. They do let themselves down sometimes with slow replies to client queries.

So strange how people are having different experiences with what must surely be an automated and fairly straightforward system built into IG's share-dealing platform. Eager to hear their response in case the same happens to me next month!

Update.  I got through to customer support and there was an issue between 30th April and 1st May with the automated script that updates accounts.  So IG are aware of the issue and are fixing it.  The accounts should be upgraded next week and we will be refunded any commission paid over £3 on 1st May.

Bpcue did share on the forum yesterday a reply they had from IG on this very issue (see pic below). It seems IG are having problems with the automated system and are working on a fix.

This is wrong, I checked with support before I started trading - all share trades count regardless of region. The only thing I'm not sure of is whether CFD Equity trades count towards Share trades and vice  versa or not. I've asked the question but haven't had a reply yet.

There were issues with the UK reduced commission scheme. 

We're looking into refunding all clients that were not meant to be charged the larger rate. 

Going forward this issue should not happen again. 

All the best and apologies.
