Investment ISA Transfers

Whether you’re looking to move to another ISA with the same provider or to a new provider all together there can be advantages to transferring such as to secure a better rate or to consolidate your accounts to try and make it easier to manage your money, It is possible to transfer an investment ISA into another Investment ISA or Cash ISA, or vice versa.

ISA providers are required to allow account holders to transfer to another ISA; however it is important to note that providers do not have to permit transfers in to their products.

Providers can also impose an interest based penalty for transferring out, this means if your current provider would impose a penalty for moving, you should first calculate whether this penalty would negate the potential benefits of moving.

Transferring an Investment ISA

If you want to transfer your ISA, it is important that you follow the process; if you merely withdraw the money you will lose the tax efficient advantages.

To transfer your ISA you need to contact the ISA provider you wish to switch to and fill out an ISA transfer form, once you have sent this off the new provider will contact your current provider and arrange the transfer.

Industry guidelines currently recommend that transferring an investment ISA should take 30 days from start to finish, however as this type of ISA can contain a selection of different investment each of which potentially taking different amounts of time to or close it could take a provider longer than 30 days to prepare the money within the ISA for transfer. 

Important Risk Information:

The value of investments and income from them can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the full amount invested. The tax efficiency of ISAs is based on current tax law and there is no guarantee that tax rules will stay the same in the future.

Different types of investment carry different levels of risk and may not be suitable for all investors. Please ensure that you read the Important Risk Information for further details. Prior to making any decision to invest, you should ensure that you are familiar with the risks associated with a particular investment and should read the product literature. If you are in any doubt as to the suitability of a particular investment, both in respect of its objectives and its risk profile, you should seek independent financial advice.
