ISA Transfer to IG and Custody Fees


Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I'm currently waiting to transfer my stock&shares ISA to IG. 

Transfer

Do I have to wait for it to complete to invest here? I opened other ISA in June 2020. Haven't fully used the £20,000 limit. So can I invest the remainder while I wait or do I have to wait for transfer to complete? As maybe it'll count as opening two ISAs in a tax year??

IG Fees

When do they start? Currently have 0 balance and waiting for transfer. Would I be charged?

When does each quarter start? is it Jan-Marc, Apr-June, etc? or varies depending on when i start/transfer complete.

I understand that if I do 3 trades per quarter there is no custody fee. Is there a minimum value to these trades to meet this?

Also noticed I have a share dealing and an isa account on my dashboard. is that normal? Only want the share isa. I won't be paying two custody fees right?

 

Thank you for the help!

Hey @sus123,

Transfer:

General rule is, no splitting current isa allowance between 2 brokers of same isa type unless transfer is in flight.
If you wants to split inflight, it is your duty to ensure you don't over subscribe. 

IG Fees: 

We don't charge for transfers but you should check your currently provider incase they have an exit fee. 

Quarters are: Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun ... 

There's no minimum value of commission for the quarterly fee. Three trades = no custody fee. Say you make 2 trades though and the commission totals to £20, you will only be charged (£24- £20) = £4

Your accounts collate meaning if you have a share dealing and ISA account you will only be charged £24 custody fee for the two. You can trade on either account to count towards the custody fee. 

All the best

Hi Charlotte,

Thank you for the help!

By 'in flight' do you mean in process of transfering.

So I have requested to transfer my ISA to ig last week? So I can use the remaining balance now, right?

Thanks!

    • This content is based on my personal opinion and not a financial advise for readers hence ensure you DYOR before investing. Resources: https://www.odaily.news/en/newsflash/380143 No doubt memecoin has seen tremendous adoption over the last 6 with more capital inflowing into the memecoin sector. The artificial intelligence sector and RWA sector is another sector that looks promising but the crazy gains recorded from memecoin in the first quarter of the year might have been the reason for investors to shift their focus to memecoin.  With BTC only managing 48% gain since the beginning of 2024, tokens like WIF, PEPE and floki surged by 1300%, 815% and 392% respectively. Among the top 10 tokens, BGB the native token of Bitget was the only exchange token to find it's way up returning 100% to investors in 6 months. While the second half of the year hold a lot of promise due to anticipation of BTC post halving bullrun, a lot of investors are looking to invest in a tokens with decent ROI potential and memecoin looks the best option to many. Not disputing the crazy gains that might comes with investing in memecoin, the risk of losing it all is also higher especially investing in new memecoins. Considering the continuous growth, expansion and ecosystem development of Bitget, BGB holds a great potential with minimal risk compared to memecoin. Additionally, the entry point is still very great for both new and old investors. What sectors do you think will lead in the bullrun proper? Will memecoin still lead the year or will AI, Gaming, RWA pull a surprise. Share your thoughts.
    • Yeah! I think I would have to agree with you on this as I have benefited a lot from the event this recent times & I have plans of leveraging the event for a long time.
