Transfer a Junior Cash ISA, Child Trust Fund or Junior Stocks and Shares ISA to a Junior Stocks and Shares ISA.

It takes 5 minutes to print out and fill in the application, and it’s free to send back to: FREEPOST, Hargreaves Lansdown.

What you need to know

  • You must be the same parent or guardian named as the registered contact on your child’s existing ISA or Child Trust Fund to complete the transfer.
  • You can normally choose how your child’s Junior Stocks and Shares ISA is transferred:
    • Transfer as is: We’ll move your child's investments and any cash as they are. When the transfer is complete, you can buy or sell investments again.
    • Sell investments first: Your provider will sell your child's investments and transfer the cash. Your child won’t gain or lose from market changes until you reinvest the cash.

    You may also have the option to do this with some Child Trust Funds.

  • The government enforces a cooling-off period for Child Trust Fund transfers. Once we receive your request, we have to wait 14 days before progressing it. This is because you can’t get a Child Trust Fund back once you’ve transferred from it.
  • An HL Junior Stocks and Shares ISA is for people comfortable choosing investments themselves. If you’re not sure which investments are right for your child, please ask us about financial advice. There’s no personal advice on our website.

  • Unlike cash, investments can go up and down in value so your child could get back less than you put in. Any income the investments pay can change over time.
  • It’s a good idea to check before transferring if you’ll have large exit fees or will lose valuable guarantees or benefits.

What you need to have to hand

  • Name of your child’s ISA or Child Trust Fund provider

  • Your child’s Junior Stocks and Shares ISA or Junior Cash ISA account number, or their Child Trust Fund reference number.

Transfer a Drawdown Pension

Transfer a Drawdown Pension. It takes 5 minutes to fill in the application and request a free transfer pack.

What you need to know

  • An HL SIPP Drawdown Account is for people comfortable choosing their own investments. If you’re not sure which investments are right for you, please ask us about financial advice. There’s no personal advice on our website.
  • Tax rules can change, and their benefits depend on your circumstances.
  • Investments can go up and down in value so you could get back less than you put in. Any income your investments pay can change over time.
  • Drawdown in the HL SIPP does not come with financial advice, unless you request it. Any advice you receive with your current provider will usually stop when you transfer.
  • Drawdown is more complex than an annuity, because your income is not guaranteed. You'll need to choose and manage your own investments and income. If your investments don't perform well, or you take too much income, your pension could run out. If you're not sure if drawdown is right for you, please ask for advice.

I confirm I am applying to join the HL SIPP. I agree to be bound by the Scheme Rules, and acknowledge that these have been made available to me by Hargreaves Lansdown.

I confirm that I will be a relevant UK individual in any tax year in which personal contributions are paid.

I declare that the total contributions that I will make to the HL SIPP and any other Registered Pension Scheme where I am entitled to relief under Section 188 of the Finance Act 2004 will not exceed the higher of:

  1. The basic amount (currently £3,600) or
  2. 100% of my Relevant UK Earnings (within the meaning of section 189 of the Finance Act 2004) for that tax year.

This declaration and the particulars given in this application are, to the best of my knowledge and belief, correct and complete.

If an event occurs which means that I will no longer be entitled to relief under to Section 188 of the Finance Act 2004, I will inform Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management by 5th April of the tax year in which the event occurs or 30 days after the event if later.

If I make a contribution, of which part or all is not eligible for tax relief, I will notify you separately on or before the date of the contribution. I will advise Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management Ltd, in writing, within 30 days if I cease to be a United Kingdom resident.

I have not received advice from Hargreaves Lansdown regarding the merits of entering into, or the suitability of any aspect of the HL SIPP unless that aspect has been covered under a separate agreement for individual advice from a Hargreaves Lansdown Financial Adviser. If I have any doubts I will seek personal advice, in particular regarding the merits of the various pension options I may have available to me now and in the future.

I allow Hargreaves Lansdown to process my application using the information provided. This declaration and any other declaration made by me in connection with this application shall be the basis of the contract between me and Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management Ltd.

I confirm I have not registered with HM Revenue and Customs to protect pension funds built up from a potential Lifetime Allowance tax charge.

In addition to the declaration please read the following statement regarding Hargreaves Lansdown's communications with you.

Hargreaves Lansdown Plc and its group companies will send or email you complimentary issues of our investment publications and information about new products and services. If you would prefer not to receive these, please do let us know. Your personal data will remain confidential, and will not be passed to any other organisation unless required to do so by law.

You can transfer part of a Stocks and Shares ISA by downloading a transfer form and including a letter of instruction with your application. At the moment it’s not possible to do a partial transfer online.
