What are ancillary costs?

Recommended Posts

Under my ISA annual charges statement, there is a significant "ancillary costs" figure for the past year. Could someone help me understand what comes under this? 

I have been mainly trading UK and US individual stocks.

Hi @BigDeal @crystak

The ancillary costs consist of Custody fee and currency conversion. 

Currency conversion: When your trade requires conversion of one currency to another, we charge a currency conversion fee, added on to the conversion itself.

Custody fee: A fee charged if you hold investments on a share dealing account or ISA at the end of a quarter, and have traded fewer than three times in that quarter. The fee does not apply if you only hold cash on your account, and any commission you pay reduces the fee by the relevant amount.

    • Does anyone else know any other SB providers that you can use to trade through TV?  I've only so far seen CFD providers which doesn't work for me due to tax reasons (mainly the hassle of having to account for it as well as the obvious cost).
    • Is there any update on when/if there will be any integration with Tradingview???
    • The anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions can vary depending on the specific cryptocurrency you use and the methods you use. While some cryptocurrencies provide a degree of privacy and anonymity, it is important to note that achieving complete anonymity can be difficult. Most cryptocurrencies operate on a pseudonymous basis. Transactions are recorded in a public ledger, called a blockchain, using cryptographic addresses instead of personal information. However, these addresses are usually not directly linked to a real identity, unless someone voluntarily discloses this information. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC), are specifically designed to increase privacy and anonymity. I read on https://deeplab.com/darkweb/anonymous-sudan-launches-cyberattacks-on-middle-eastern-news-outlets-expands-target-list-with-four-additional-names that some people use this anonymity as a cyber attack.
