For options, we offer Tiered and Fixed commissions that depend on the region.

Options pricing structures are defined per region/denomination and cannot be changed by the client.

Tiered Plans IBKR Pro

Tiered plans charge our low broker commissions, decrease based on volume, plus exchange, regulatory, and clearing fees, plus VAT where applicable. In cases where an exchange provides a rebate, we pass some or all of the savings directly back to you. 1

Fixed Plans IBKR Pro / IBKR Lite

Fixed plans charge a single flat rate per contract that includes all commissions and all exchange, regulatory and other third party fees, plus VAT (also referred to as consumption tax or goods and services tax) where applicable.

  1. IBKR's Tiered commission models are not intended to be a direct pass-through of exchange and third-party fees and rebates. Costs passed on to clients in IBKR’s Tiered commission schedule may be greater than the costs paid by IBKR to the relevant exchange, regulator, clearinghouse or third party. For example, IBKR may receive volume discounts that are not passed on to clients. Likewise, rebates passed on to clients by IBKR may be less than the rebates IBKR receives from the relevant market. For example, IBKR may receive enhanced rebate payments for exceeding volume thresholds on particular markets, but typically will not pass these enhancements directly to clients.
