What happens if I move money between my Cash ISA and Stocks and Shares ISA myself by bank transfer?

Moving money between ISA cash accounts by bank transfer will impact your ISA allowance. By bank transfer, we mean making a payment using the account number and sort code.

For example, if you paid money from a Cash ISA account into a Stocks and Shares ISA cash account yourself, the money leaving the Cash ISA would lose its ISA status. The money would then use a portion of your ISA allowance when it’s paid into the Stocks and Shares ISA. 

When you withdraw money from an ISA in this way, you can’t reinstate it and would 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 If you choose to re-add money that you’ve withdrawn from an ISA, you’ll use up a portion of an ISA allowance, unless you have a flexible ISA.

If you want to move money between your Cash ISA and Stocks and Shares ISA without it affecting your ISA allowance, you will need to arrange an ISA transfer by completing an ISA transfer form (see below).
