Which ISAs can I transfer?

You can transfer Cash ISAs and Stocks and Shares ISAs to us.

Transferring doesn't count towards your ISA allowance.

It's free to transfer an ISA to us

Your current provider may charge exit fees though, so it’s worth checking with them first - we wouldn’t want you to lose money.

Also, if you’re transferring a fixed rate cash ISA, remember that if you leave before the end of the term, you may have to pay a fee.

How to transfer

Transferring a Cash ISA

If you've got enough saved for a rainy day and are thinking about investing, it could be sensible to transfer a Cash ISA to a Stocks and Shares ISA.

Interest rates on Cash ISAs have been low for years, but with a Stocks and Shares ISA you have the opportunity to grow your money over the long term. Just remember, unlike cash, investments can fall as well as rise so you could lose money.

ISA transfer rules

Transferring your ISA is a simple process, but there are a few rules you might need to know.

Terms of the cashback offer – Autumn 2020 – SIPP, ISA and General Investment Account transfers only

1. Subject to these terms and conditions, if you transfer an existing pension, ISA or general investment account from another platform, you will receive a cash amount depending on the amount you transfer (the “Offer”). The Offer is funded by us and the cashback will not come from your own cash or investments.

2. The Offer will be available between 5 October 2020 and 10 January 2021 inclusive (the “Offer Period”).

3. If your transfer completes within the Offer Period, the cashback payment will be paid into your Loyalty Bonus Account no later than one month after the Offer has closed. If your transfer completes after the Offer has closed, the cashback payment will be paid into your Loyalty Bonus Account within one month of the date on which your last qualifying transfer completes, which will be determined by us. Your Loyalty Bonus Account is separate from your HL ISA, Fund and Share Account and SIPP. The cash can be kept in your Loyalty Bonus Account for fee collection, withdrawn or moved into whichever HL account you choose. If moved into an ISA or SIPP, it will count towards your annual allowance.

4. We ask you keep your HL account(s) for one year from the date of the transfer. Please feel free to switch between investments and in or out of cash within your account, but if you decide to transfer away or close your account within 12 months of the date your transfer completes, then we reserve the right to reclaim the cashback paid. If cash is to be reclaimed then you will be notified and the cash will be taken within 7 days of the account closure or transfer.

Specific terms for SIPP transfers

If transferring a drawdown pension, you must include a note requesting cashback with your postal application to qualify. As long as we receive your qualifying application within the Offer Period, even if the transfer itself isn’t completed until after the Offer closes, you will still qualify.

7. The value of your cashback will be based on the cumulative total value of transfers you make within the Offer Period into your HL SIPP, not the value of each transfer. The value of the cashback will be determined in accordance with the tiers identified in the table accompanying these terms and conditions. It isn’t possible to combine the value of transfers into accounts with different client numbers for the purpose of this Offer. The maximum amount of cashback you can receive under this Offer is £500.
