How does transferring affect my ISA allowance?

If you arrange a transfer between ISAs by completing a transfer form, your tax-free ISA status will remain protected and the transfer will not affect your ISA allowance for the current tax year.

Don’t withdraw the money out of an ISA yourself or move it to a personal bank account. If you do this, your money will lose its ISA status. This means that you can’t reinstate it and you’ll permanently lose that portion of your ISA allowance. If you choose to re-add money that you’ve withdrawn from an ISA, you’ll use up a portion of an ISA allowance, unless you have a flexible ISA.
