Wondering what accounting fees are associated with a self-directed IRA?

We are upfront about our fees and make them easy to understand. The four fee categories are establishment, administration, transaction, and termination. Clients have 24/7 access to their account via our Client Portal and are assigned a personal representative to answer any questions about their IRA. Entrust also provides FREE investor education and resources in our IRA Learning Center.

Establishment Fee

If investing in:
Alternative Assets (non-refundable, one-time fee per account)


Precious Metals (only) $0

Annual Account
Administration Fee

Precious Metals Accounts (only) $150

Alternative Assets Account Fee Options

Option 1 - Based on Number of Assets $299 per asset
Option 2 - Based on Asset Value (calculate using the table below) Min. $199 - Max. $1,995
If the account value is between Multiply the value by
$1 and $24,999
$25,000 and $49,999
$50,000 and $149,999
$150,000 and $299,999
$300,000 and up
$1,995 (max)

For example, if account value is $20,000, the annual administration fee would be $199 ($20,000 x .0095 = $190. However, $199 is the minimum fee.) If account value is $55,000, the annual administration fee would be $445.00, calculated by adding together the incremental amounts for each tier: Tier 1: $24,999 x .0095 = $237.49; Tier 2: $25,000 x .0070 = $175.00. Tier 3: $5,001 x .0065 = $32.51. Combining the number from all three tiers totals $445.00.
