Transferring an ISA from another provider

To transfer in a cash ISA, a stocks and shares ISA or an innovative finance ISA from an external ISA provider please complete one of the forms below. The cash ISA transfer form can be completed and submitted online. If you're transferring in to a Fixed rate ISA with us, we need to receive your transfer application within 14 days of account opening.

Please consider the following before deciding to transfer your ISA to us:
We don't charge a transfer fee but other providers may. You can transfer some or all of the money that you have paid into cash and/or stocks and shares ISAs in previous tax years. If you wish to transfer money that you have paid into a cash, stocks and shares and/or innovative finance ISA in the current tax year, you will need to transfer all of the amount that you have paid into the ISA in the current tax year. Any money that you withdraw yourself from your ISA will lose its tax-free status and if repaid back into an ISA will count towards the current tax year's ISA allowance. Santander isn't providing advice as to whether transferring your ISA(s) is right for you.

If you transfer an ISA in full to Santander and have built up previous tax year flexible allowances with your current provider, you will lose that allowance when you move to Santander. If you wish to use the flexible allowance you should re-deposit into your existing ISA before you transfer to Santander.
