Who can open an account for a child?
Both our Right Start Saver and Ethical Junior Cash ISA can be opened by an adult with parental responsibility for a child. A child must be aged between 7 and 15 to open a Right Start Saver for themselves, or 16 or 17 to open an Ethical Junior Cash ISA themselves.
From the age of 16, the account must be held in the name of the young person. We’ll be in touch at the time to let you know what you need to do.
We’ll write to you one month before your bond matures, asking you where you’d like your funds to go. If you have internet banking you will be able to make your choice online and can decide to either reinvest or transfer your matured funds to another account. If we don’t hear from you before your bond matures, we’ll open a Triodos Saver account on your behalf and write to let you know. There will always be opportunities for you to reinvest your money with Triodos, and we hope you choose to do so.
Right Start Saver accounts are for people aged 18 and under. We’ll be in touch when the account holder turns 18. If we don’t hear back from you, we’ll close the account and transfer the funds to another Triodos account, until we receive your instructions.
The person with legal parental responsibility who opened the account. When the account holder turns 16 the child may apply to be the account operator.
We can pay it on the first of each month into an account you choose when you apply, or we pay it annually each January and at the end when the bond matures.
You can save any amount between £500 and £1,000,000.
You make the full opening deposit by electronic transfer from the account you nominate when applying, or from an existing Triodos UK account.
To top up a Triodos Cash ISA:
- Make a transfer from another account (either an account with another provider or another Triodos account that allows withdrawals)
- Transfer by cheque if the Triodos cash ISA you want to subscribe to accepts cheques - contact us if you are not sure on 0330 355 0355 or +44 (0)117 973 9339 if calling from abroad
The Triodos sort code is 16-58-10 and you can find your Triodos cash ISA account number on your statements. If you want to deposit a cheque, please post it along with a paying-in slip to:

Historically, smaller challenger banks such as Triodos had no option but to utilise one of the “big four” banks (RBS, Lloyds, HSBC and Barclays) for payment clearing services.
So it is not unusual to see banks of Triodos’ size (or indeed some far bigger organisations) still utilising the “big four” clearing banks.
However, there is currently a real drive by the government, via the Payments Systems Regulator, to promote competition in the banking sector and to encourage innovation in payment systems.
This has resulted in a wider choice of clearing options (including alternative providers and/or direct clearing) now available to challenger banks.
While changing our clearing arrangements would be a very large undertaking we will continue to review the options in the future, remaining conscious of maintaining a high quality of service for all our customers.
The deposit guarantee scheme guarantees up to € 100,000 per person. The scheme applies per person per licensed bank, regardless of the number of accounts that they hold providing the funds are held in an eligible account.
For eligible joint accounts held in the names of two persons, both account holders can claim compensation. A balance of € 200,000 held in a joint account is therefore covered. You are not covered for funds in both a sole account and a joint account if this exceeds €100,000 per person as a total held with Triodos Bank, unless you qualify for a temporary higher guarantee.
If you have sold your house and have a high balance in your account, there is a temporary increase allowed to the limit you are covered for, the maximum sum guaranteed is €500,000. This is an additional guarantee that applies for a period of three months after the money is deposited.
For a full outline of the scheme please see the Depositor Information Sheet below.
The deposit guarantee scheme will pay out any compensation in Euros. This will need to be converted to sterling by you. The amount you receive in sterling will depend on the currency exchange rate on the date you make the transaction
At least 30 days before the end, we’ll ask you where you want your money to be paid. This can be into a new bond if one is available. If we don’t hear from you, we will transfer it into a 33-day notice Saver account - however, we won't apply the 33-day notice restriction on withdrawals during the first 30 days of this new Saver account.
Yes. As long as the child was a UK resident when the Junior cash ISA was opened, you will still be able to pay into the Junior cash ISA even though you and/or the child have moved abroad.
In 2010, the United States (US) Treasury announced the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). It is intended to prevent tax evasion by US citizens, residents and organisations through the use of offshore accounts and is a key change for international information exchange policy. Under FATCA, Financial Institutions must comply with a number of obligations, including reporting on accounts held by US persons, including organisations.
A number of governments, including the UK, have signed agreements to exchange data with the US. Triodos Bank must check customer records and accounts to identify US account holders and report information on them. To do this we introduced new procedures from 1 July 2014.

A child may only hold one Junior cash ISA and one Junior stocks and shares ISA at any time and cannot hold a Junior ISA and a Child Trust Fund at the same time.
You can however apply to transfer a Junior ISA or a Child Trust Fund from one provider to another. You can also transfer between the different types of Junior ISA, in either direction.Junior ISA
- Transfers of current year’s subscriptions or transfers between the same type of Junior ISA must always be done in full.
- Partial transfers can only be done if they are previous years’ subscriptions and you are moving the subscriptions between different Junior ISA types e.g. Junior cash to Junior stocks and shares or Junior stocks and shares to Junior cash.
- The whole of the Child Trust Fund must be transferred and the Child Trust Fund subsequently closed.
- The annual subscription allowance for a Child Trust Fund is based on the child’s birth year while Junior ISA subscriptions are based on tax years. When a transfer of a Child Trust Fund to a Junior ISA has been made, the child can use the full Junior ISA subscription allowance for the tax year in which the transfer takes place regardless of any subscriptions made to the Child Trust Fund in that year. This only occurs in the tax year in which the Child Trust Fund is transferred, in subsequent years only the Junior ISA allowance can be used.
