Transfer Bonus FAQs

What is the Transfer Bonus?

You can now earn up to £250 Transfer Bonus on any transfers initiated within a 90-day window starting from the date of the first transfer request.

When does my 90-day transfer window start?

Your 90-day window starts from the day you first requested your transfer. Any transfers initiated within your 90-day window are eligible for the Transfer Bonus.

When do I get my Transfer Bonus?

We will calculate the Transfer Bonus 90 calendar days after all Eligible Transfers have settled and deposit it into your General Investment Account within six business days.

Can I transfer from a GIA and an ISA?

Yes. You can transfer investments and cash from your General Investment Account (GIA), Cash ISA, Stocks & Shares ISA, and Innovative Finance ISA. The total amount of all settled and Eligible Transfers (in both GIA and ISA) will be used to determine your Transfer Bonus value.

Can I transfer other types of ISAs?

Yes. You can also transfer a Cash ISA and an Innovative finance ISA. All you have to do is open an account, fill out our transfer form, and we’ll work with your current provider to transfer your cash on to our Stocks & shares ISA.

Does transferring affect my ISA allowance?

No. Transferring does not count toward your overall ISA allowance usage. But if you transfer your current year ISA, any current year allowance used from your old provider will also be transferred, so you still maintain the free tax advantages.

How long does a transfer take?

Transferring usually takes around 30 calendar days to complete, however, there are a lot of things that could delay this based on your current provider's timelines. The quickest way to start your transfer is through our easy in-app process. We'll then contact your provider for you and keep you updated on the transfer status within the app.

Is it free to transfer?

Yes, we do not charge you to transfer to us, however, there may be an exit fee with your current provider, so it is always best to check with them! We also do not charge you to leave us.

How much of my ISA can I transfer?

You can transfer as much as you wish, as transferring your ISA does not count towards your ISA allowance. However, if you are transferring this tax year’s ISA, you will need to transfer all of this in full. We advise you check with your current provider if they allow partial transfers.

What happens if you cannot hold my asset?

For funds, we would look to convert your asset to something that we are able to hold, however, this doesn't apply to shares. For investments we cannot convert, you can either decide to leave it at your current provider or sell it and send it across as cash.

Who can open a stocks & shares ISA account?

To be eligible to open a stocks & shares ISA account, you must be a UK tax resident and at least 18 years of age.

How many stocks & shares ISAs can I have?

You can’t pay into more than one stocks & shares ISA in a given tax year. However, you can choose to split your ISA allowance between a stocks and shares ISA and a cash ISA.

Who can open a general investment account?

Anyone can open an account as long as they're over 18, are a UK or EEA resident and have a UK bank account.
