Additional information about the ISA transfer process
- Once we have received your completed Letter of Authority, we will ask your existing provider to close your old account and transfer the money to us.
- We will pay interest at your new Cash ISA rate from the day they close your old account, ensuring you earn interest every day of the transfer process.
- The transfer process should take 15 working days for a cash ISA and 30 days for a stocks and shares ISA, lifetime ISA or an innovative finance ISA. If it takes longer we will pay you interest at your new cash ISA rate from the 16th working day for a cash ISA transfer or from the 31st working day for a stocks and shares ISA, lifetime ISA or an innovative finance ISA, as long as your old account was ready to close (i.e. was not subject to a notice period or was a fixed rate that had yet to mature) when we first made the transfer request.
