Regulatory Fees 

Regulatory expenses are mandated fees passed on to the consumer. These occur when users sell a stock or ETF, and often cost only a few pennies. These fees are automatically deducted from the profits of any stock sale and only occur on the sells.

Fee formulas:

  • SEC Fee = total price of transaction * $8.00 / 1,000,000 ¹
  • TAF = $0.000166 per share for each sale of a covered equity security with a maximum of $8.30 per trade.²

*Fees are rounded up to the nearest penny 

Please note when trading American Depository Receipts (ADR), fees may apply and are charged to you as the holder of the ADR.
