Charges and Savings

Initial charges
Initial charge: 0.00%
Initial saving from HL: 0.00%
HL dealing charge: Free
Net initial charge: 0.00%

How initial savings affect the buy price

The initial saving applied to a fund depends on how it is priced. Dual priced funds have two different prices (a sell price and a buy price); single priced funds have a single price (at which the fund can be bought and sold).

For dual priced funds the difference between the buy and sell price is made up of the initial charge and other costs e.g. the fund manager's dealing costs. The 'initial saving from HL' will reduce the buying price, but even with a full discount the buying price may still be higher than the selling price.

For single priced funds the price quoted does not include the 'initial charge'. Any 'initial charge' after deduction of the 'initial saving from HL' will be added to the price quoted.

Please note that even where a full saving is offered a dilution levy could be applied on the way in or out of the fund.

For full details please see the HL guide to fund prices, savings and yields. ×

Annual charges
Performance fee: No
Ongoing charge (OCF/TER): 0.08%
Ongoing saving from HL: 0.00%
Net ongoing charge: 0.08%

HMRC believes that from April 2013 rebates of annual charges (such as loyalty bonuses) paid on funds held in nominee accounts, such as our Fund & Share Account, should be subject to income tax. Loyalty bonuses paid on funds in ISAs and SIPPs are unaffected, and they remain tax-free.

We believe all loyalty bonuses are tax-free and we are challenging HMRC's interpretation. However, while we make this challenge we are paying loyalty bonuses within the Vantage Fund & Share Account net of an amount equivalent to the basic rate tax. If we are successful in our challenge we will return this money to clients. If we are unsuccessful we will use the money to pay over any amounts due to HMRC.

If loyalty bonuses are taxable then the value of our ongoing saving to you could be reduced, depending on the rate of tax you pay. The below table gives an indication of how this may affect you.

In this case, the ongoing saving is 0.00%, of which 0.00% is paid by loyalty bonus. The tax that could be payable on this loyalty bonus, and therefore the value of this saving to you, is shown below.

Non-taxpayer Basic rate taxpayer Higher rate taxpayer Additional rate taxpayer
Ongoing saving from HL: 0.00% 0.00% 0.00% 0.00%
Loyalty bonus: 0.00% 0.00% 0.00% 0.00%
Tax on loyalty bonus: 0.00% 0.00% 0.00% 0.00%
Value of ongoing saving to you: 0.00% 0.00% 0.00% 0.00%

Tax rules can change and benefits depend on individual circumstances. Please remember loyalty bonuses received on funds held in the Vantage ISA or Vantage SIPP are exempt from tax.

Also, loyalty bonuses received by overseas investors, companies and charities are not required to be paid with the deduction of tax. Therefore, if you are an overseas investor, or you represent a company or charity please let us know if you would like your loyalty bonuses paid without the deduction of an amount equivalent to the basic rate tax.


In some cases the ongoing savings are provided by our loyalty bonus. Loyalty bonuses are tax-free in an ISA or SIPP. However, they may be subject to tax in a Fund & Share Account which would, in effect, reduce their value and increase the net ongoing charge.
