What’s included in your customer fees?

Anything that covers the running of your account, but doesn’t directly relate to transactions, including:

  • Custody of your investments
  • Maintenance of your accounts
  • Automatic dividend reinvestments
  • Transferring cash or investments in from another provider
  • Transferring cash or investments out to another provider
  • Moving cash or investments between accounts 
  • Portfolio analysis when logged in to your account
  • Tailored, relevant insight and articles to help you be a smarter investor
  • Support from our knowledgeable team by phone or live web chat
  • All other sundry activities that may arise

Third party charges

When you buy shares, including investment trusts, the Government imposes Stamp Duty at the following rates:

  • 0.5% Stamp Duty on all UK share purchases settled through CREST, rounded up to the nearest 1p
  • 0.5% Stamp Duty on all UK share purchases not settled through CREST, rounded up to the nearest £5
  • 1% Stamp Duty on Irish registered stock

The Panel of Takeovers and Mergers (PTM) also charges £1 on all UK share transactions with a combined value of over £10,000.

Please note that funds, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and investment trusts come with charges and expenses applied by the fund manager to cover the costs of buying and selling the underlying investments and managing the fund. Most funds we offer have no initial charge, but if there is one, it is a fee levied by the fund manager and Barclays doesn’t keep any part of it.

Pension Administration Charges

Please note these fees apply to existing SIPP customers. Fees for the new Barclays SIPP have yet to be confirmed and fees may be more or less than those currently charged.

In addition to the Customer and Transaction fees above, there are Pension Account Administration charges if you currently have a Barclays SIPP. All SIPP accounts pay an AJ Bell Administration fee of £31.25 + VAT per quarter or part thereof (£125 + VAT p.a). This fee will be collected by Barclays and paid to AJ Bell. No part of this fee is kept by Barclays.

Depending on your activity additional SIPP charges may apply. See a full list of SIPP fees [PDF, 425KB]

You are currently unable to open a SIPP. However, you can be the first to know when the Barclays SIPP becomes available.

Interest Rates

Investment Account, Investment ISA and SIPP Account

Barclays Investment Solutions Ltd holds all uninvested cash as Client Money with a selection of Approved Banks or other third parties. The current panel can be found here.

No interest is currently paid on these balances.

Investment Saver

Interest is paid on the first day of each month, based on the cash held in your account the previous month. Rates may change from time to time. Interest rate: 0.15% pa /AER
