Fairly new to the Freetrade game (December '19) and am slowly expanding my portfolio. I’m in my late 20s and, until now, only held ETFs through Vanguard, but am slowly growing in confidence picking my own stocks in Freetrade and slowly transferring over.
I have recently purchased a small amount of £HGM that is traded on the LSE and headquartered in Jersey. It’s my first non-UK company (and almost certainly not my last) but I was wondering about any fees associated. I didn’t have to pay 0.5% stamp duty (as it’s Jersey) but also didn’t pay the 0.5% forex charge as it’s still in GBP. I’m assuming I’ll have to pay some sort of tax on it if/when I decide to sell, but am wondering what that would be.
Any information from anyone wanting to help out a newbie would be very much appreciated.
