Fees for other services


Vanguard Brokerage Services charges a $20 annual account service fee. We dont charge the fee to any of the following:

  • Clients who have an organization or a trust account registered under an employee identification number (EIN).
  • Clients who hold at least $10,000 in Vanguard ETFs® (exchange-traded funds) and mutual funds.
  • Clients whove elected e-delivery of statements; our annual privacy policy notice; and brokerage and mutual fund confirmations, reports, prospectuses, and proxy materials.
  • Clients with at least $50,000 in qualifying Vanguard assets.


American Depositary Receipts (ADRs)


Banks that custody ADRs are permitted to charge ADR holders certain fees, as detailed in the ADR prospectuses.

Pass through ADR fees are collected from Vanguard Brokerage Services by the Depository Trust Company (DTC) and will be automatically deducted from your brokerage account and shown on your account statement.

Other fees—including dividend processing fees—may be withheld by the DTC from the amount paid by the issuer.


Foreign securities transactions


$50 processing fee for non-DTC-eligible securities (not applicable to ADRs) plus commission.

If a trade executes over multiple days, the commission will be charged for each day on which an execution occurs.

Additional fees may apply for trades executed directly on local markets.


Vanguard Brokerage charges a $10 wire fee for each holding youre redeeming. However, this fee is waived for clients who hold at least $1 million in qualifying Vanguard assets. While Vanguard doesnt charge a fee for electronic bank transfers or wire, your bank may charge you a fee.


Tax filing for Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) in an IRA


Vanguard Fiduciary Trust Company (VFTC), the custodian for IRAs held at Vanguard Brokerage Services, is responsible for IRS 990-T tax filings for MLPs. VFTC charges a fee of $300 per account for these filings.* Vanguard Brokerage will facilitate collection of the fee by deducting the fee amount from your brokerage account when a filing is required.


Other securities transaction or maintenance fees may apply. Call us for additional information.

*The fee applies to tax filings for the tax year 2020 and thereafter. If you hold $1 million or more in Vanguard ETFs and Vanguard funds or you’re a Personal Advisor Services client, this fee will be waived.
