    My portfolio on ii will be 160/yr cheaper to hold on ii than on iWeb.

    I reinvest divis automatically, and I trade about 8 times/yr, so in ii it will cost me 30, but when it was TD it cost 190.

    On iWeb it would cost a minimum of 160

    I was going to move to iWeb, but not now

    OK I'll bite:

    Your maths & charges are flawed.

    II charge 22.50 per quarter standard fee. So even all your trades are covered by the fee credits it'll still cost 90.00 - not 30.00 pa?
    And there is other stuff wrong in the OP

    soulsaver, you're right, I made a mistake by not adding on the platform fees

    So here are some real numbers I've created from looking at my past year
    ================================================
    Old TD 57 Reinvestments * 1.50: 85
    8 Trades * 12.50: 100
    Platform Cost 0
    Platform Trading Cost Offset 0
    Total Cost 185
    =================================================
    New TD 57 Reinvestments * 1.00: 57
    8 Trades * 10.00: 80
    Platform Cost 90
    Cost 257
    less Platform costs -90
    Total Cost 167

    So it's abit cheaper, coulf be lot cheaper if I accumulated all my divis and just added them onto my annual ISA allowance and just traded 8 times a year.

    And comparing this to iWeb (reinvesting costs 2% of divi value) this is how much my trading would cost:

    On iWeb 57 Reinvestments at 2% 120
    8 Trades at 5.00 40
    Total Cost 160
    Again I could accumulate the divis and just add to my annual ISA allowance

    So I've changed my mind now, I think I'll move to iWeb in the near future
