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.
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.

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.
You can open a Triodos Ethical Junior Cash ISA account, and transfer the funds from your Right Start Saver into it, subject to the Junior ISA allowance of £4,260 for the 2018/2019 tax year.
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.

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.
Within a couple of days from when your online only account is opened, or an existing account has been set up with internet banking, we'll send your username by email, and your unique password by post. Please contact us if they don't arrive.
If you open a new account, and you already have internet banking access for another account, you can use your existing username and password.
Yes, you can change the adult operator on a JISA by completing a change of account operator form. Only one adult is able to operate the account.

Before the child turns 18 we will contact you to confirm that the Triodos Ethical Junior Cash ISA will become a Triodos Cash ISA on the child’s 18th birthday. After this date the child can decide what they wish to do with the account/funds.
A Junior cash ISA can only be opened by a person with legal parental responsibility for the child. The person applying must be aged 16 or over. If the child is 16 years old, the child may open the account themselves.
To set up a Junior Cash ISA for a child, the parent or person with legal parental responsibility for the child will need to be identified. We also need the child’s original birth certificate, original NHS card or a certified copy of their passport. We’ll return original documents by registered post.
