That's not how Interactive do our accounts - the £22.50 is taken from the Trading account cash, not the ISA cash. I messaged them when the £22.50 charge was introduced and they confirmed the order they use to take the charges - firstly via a direct debit if set up via the account. If no direct debit is present they try to take from the trading account cash. If there are insufficient funds in that account, they will use ISA cash.

Interactive have not touched our ISA cash - unlike Youinvest AJBell who take their fees from the individual accounts. Last time I asked Youinvest had no plans to change this procedure.


Thanks, Felix. It's a bit of a mystery then why they take the 22.50 from the ISA cash, but maybe it was a one-off glitch in the system and afterwards, I stopped adding to the Trading account, so they didn't have a choice. I'll add funds to the Trading account again and send them another email.

Interactive Investor for example - they take both my qtrly charges from my bank account by DD (I pay a Crest fee too).

I see I already have accumulated trading credits amounting to £85, not much money in the ISA, virtually none in the dealing account which contains no shares either and nothing in the ISA I want to sell at the moment. The p/f is showing an even larger overall loss than I had expected but then I realised that they were showing a 100% loss for Dairy Crest which is merging with Saputo,. already suspended from trading but not yet paid out the sum due of £5,381.60 which gives me a profit of £2381.80 not a loss of £2999.80 as shown. Pathetic! Only 2 of the other holdings are showing a profit, one being Scottish Mortgage IT and the other RDSB. I suppose I could split the cash between these and use up a bit of the dealing credits but it does look as though I am going to have to move as I will be paying fees which do not benefit me in terms of free deals.
