Add field for essential stamp duty (tax) in buying costs of UK stocks in portfolios
Add field for essential stamp duty (tax) in buying costs of UK stocks in portfolios, as it's a percentage (.5%) every purchase is currently a different buying cost as it's added manually to the broker's fee.

If you are going to perform accurate backtesting then ideally this feature needs to be added.
Coding wise this should be very simple to implement.
Everytime I trade a UK stock Im having to manually update the amount in my Portfolios. This is highly annoying and can easily be avoided!

I second this. Without the stamp duty costs the end results are greatly distorted. The possible gains are greatly inflated. Not a true results of what you would expect to gain or lose. Please include this facility in the UK program for Backtesting and Portfolio functions.
