The platform charge is calculated monthly, based on the value of your Platform Eligible Assets (PEAs) on the last working day of the previous month. This calculation is done for each product held on the Wrap platform. The charge is equal to 1/12th of your annual platform charge, as shown on your Summary of Charges document.
Your annual platform charge is calculated on a tiered basis and may change as your Wrap account value increases or decreases – for more information on charges, including product administration and dealing charges, please see Understanding charges or refer to your Terms and Conditions.
The platform charge is deducted from your Wrap account on the 5th of the month.
The platform charge applied to your Personal Portfolio (PP) and/or ISA is deducted from your Wrap Cash account. When there are insufficient funds in Wrap Cash, the platform will move cash from within PP or ISA cash into Wrap cash. If there isn’t enough cash available in your PP or ISA, investments will be sold down to cover the charge. This process is called auto-disinvestment.
The platform charges applied to your SIPP is deducted from the cash account within your SIPP. SIPP charges cannot be taken from Wrap Cash. When there is insufficient cash within your SIPP to cover your platform charge, investments will be sold down to cover this.
For more information about the platform charge, including bond charges and auto-disinvestment, please see Understanding charges.
You can view your charges being deducted from your account on the Transaction history tab on MyPlatform – make sure you have set your view to ‘Cash’. You can also see this on your Statement.
If there has been insufficient cash in Wrap cash to fund PP and/or ISA platform charges, you will see the narration: ‘Cash movement to fund Wrap cash’.

We can update your bank account details over the phone – please call 0800 027 4675. Call charges will vary.
If you are adding a bank account to take withdrawals, we will need to verify that account. To verify a bank account for withdrawals, we use a system called CallValidate to check that the details are correct and registered in your name. If you have recently made changes to your personal details (such as a change of address) with your bank or on the Wrap platform, the account may fail validation. In this case we will require confirmation of your ownership of the account via post, using either a voided cheque or a bank statement dated in the last 6 months.
It is also important to note that we can only verify bank accounts for withdrawals if the name matches the one on the Wrap account. This means we can only use your personal bank account, or a joint account which includes your name, when processing a withdrawal. Third party bank accounts cannot be used for withdrawals. This is for your protection as well as ours.

Your deal will be placed within 5 working days of us having received your instruction.

This is a method of accessing pension monies which, unlike an annuity, does not guarantee you an income for life. You access your pension monies on an ongoing basis, either through flexi-access or capped drawdown, until the money runs out. This income is assessable to income tax but you are allowed a certain amount of tax free income, otherwise known as tax free cash (TFC).
Tax free cash (TFC): When accessing your pension pot via drawdown, unless you have a high level of protected tax free cash, you are usually allowed 25% of your monies to be paid out tax free.
If you would like to instruct your first move to drawdown, change your regular drawdown instruction, take a single payment, or stop your regular instruction, please call the customer centre on 0800 085 5971. Call charges will vary. Please note you cannot take any cash out of your pension until you are at least 55.
If you would like to take out Tax Free Cash (TFC) from your pension, please call the customer centre on 0800 085 5971. Call charges will vary. Please note you normally cannot take money out of your pension until you are at least 55.
You can view how much TFC you have remaining on MyPlatform – simply go to the Account details section and select SIPP account details to view your balance. If you have a protected Lifetime Allowance (LTA), your TFC may not show correctly. Please call the customer centre on 0800 085 5971 to confirm the TFC you have remaining. Call charges will vary.
You will receive your drawdown income within 10 - 12 working days of giving us your instruction. If you have requested a tax free cash single payment, you will receive this within 6 - 8 working days of your instruction. If you have set up regular drawdown income, you will receive your monies on the selected date, keeping in mind the timescales above.
If the expected payment date for your income falls on a weekend or bank holiday, you will receive your drawdown monies on the previous working day.
Your Lifetime Allowance is the maximum amount you can take out of your pension pot (across all of your pension holdings) before incurring a tax charge. For more information about lifetime allowances and to see the current allowance for this tax year, please visit the gov.uk page.

If you feel you have been over-taxed and have received a single payment under flexi-access drawdown, you can apply for a refund through HMRC.
If would like to reclaim tax on single or regular payments under capped drawdown, or for a regular payment under flexi-access drawdown, please contact HMRC on 0300 200 3300. Call charges will vary.

This is an annual document which will be sent to you around the start of each year. The first time we sent this document was February 2019. This document provides a summary, in monetary and percentage terms, of the charges you paid over the preceding 12 months. This way you can more easily keep track of how much you are paying in fees.
Your Charges Summary is a snapshot of your annual fees as a percentage figure. The platform charge is calculated on a tiered structure and can change as your Wrap account value increases or decreases. Please see our Understanding Charges page for more information about all charges.
A Charges Information Document is produced when you are buying or switching into a fund you don’t already hold. This shows your charges on a transactional basis and is therefore calculated differently than your Charges Summary. We will send your CID as a password-protected document after we have taken your instruction. This will be sent along with any KIIDs if applicable. If you would like more information about your CID, please call our customer centre on 0800 027 4675. Call charges will vary.
Your statement provides you with a detailed breakdown of all of the transactions which occurred on your plan within the timeframe stated on the first page. Your statement will show you: charges, money in/out, cash transfers between Wrap products, the purchase and sale of investments, as well as an opening and closing value for the period.
For ISAs and Personal Portfolio, we provide statements on a quarterly basis. For the SIPP, Onshore bonds, and Offshore Bonds, these are provided annually. Unfortunately we cannot generate ad hoc SIPP/Onshore/Offshore bond statements.
Your contract notes are evidence of the purchases or sales of mutual funds or securities on your Wrap products. Your contract note shows you which fund(s) were sold, how many units, what that unit price was at the time of sale, and the settlement date of the transaction. By ‘settlement date’ we mean the date that the transaction was completed, or in other words, when the cash from a sale is available to use or the fund you purchased has now been credited to your Wrap account. The settlement date is not the same as the date of the actual purchase or sale of the fund(s).
Yes. If you would like to go paperless please call our customer centre on 0800 027 4675 and we will be happy to update your account. Call charges will vary. If you have not opted out of receiving paper copies of contract notes, we can switch those off for you as well. Due to the nature of the document, these are not automatically switched off when you go paperless, so please make sure to mention to our customer representative that you would also like to opt out of receiving paper copies of contract notes. All of your documents will be available for you to download from the Document Library on MyPlatform. Unfortunately, we cannot send these documents via email as this is not a secure method of communication.
