How can I move my non-ISA impact investment into the Ethical Stocks & Shares ISA? (Bed & ISA)

You can utilise your ISA allowance by 'wrapping' your existing impact investment funds in our Ethical Stocks & Shares ISA, this is also known as a Bed and ISA. Within the Ethical Stocks & Shares ISA you benefit from no further tax on income and no capital gains tax. The benefits of an ISA depend on your individual circumstances and tax rules may change in the future.

To wrap your existing holding in an ISA it must be sold and repurchased. We do not charge for the sale or repurchase, and we waive the initial charge when purchasing your holdings back. However, you must adhere to the minimum investment amount of £1,000 and the minimum top up amount of £500 per fund.

Please note, when selling your holding outside of the ISA wrapper you will realise a capital gain or loss. Most people have a capital gains allowance of £12,000 (for the 2019/20 tax year), below which there is no charge on gains. If you happen to make a capital loss this can be used to offset future capital gains.
