* This shows the maximum initial commision that you could pay if you applied directly to the VCT provider or were using an intermediary who retained all initial commission for themselves. This differs from the service that Cavendish Online offer whereby we request the VCT company to reinvest or rebate all initial commission for the benefit of our clients. This figure also assumes that there are no 'Early Bird' or 'Existing shareholder' discounts available. 

** This shows the initial commission you will pay using Cavendish Online. We will take no initial commission and instead charge a one-off fee of £35.

*** With regards to trail commission, if any is payable, you will be entered into our Cashback Service. Cavendish Online will take an annual fee of £10 per VCT and the rest of the commission will be rebated back to you in August. If you hold the VCT outside of an ISA then we will deduct basic rate income tax from this payment.

Some VCT providers for example will offer a commission structure of 3% initial commission discount and no trail OR 2.5% initial commission discount plus trail. When this happens, Cavendish Online will choose the first option unless clients specify that they would prefer the second option.
