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.
Transferring an existing cash ISA held with Santander
If you hold more than one Santander cash ISA, using the Santander Cash ISA Transfer Form below, you can simply combine any balances into a single cash ISA.
Once you have completed the relevant ISA transfer form, please send to the following address.
Any funds withdrawn from your cash ISA without using the above processes will be considered a withdrawal and will lose their tax free status. If you replace these funds back into an ISA they will count towards your current tax year ISA limit.

Be aware that if you take money out, and you wish to put it back later, this will count against your annual ISA allowance for that tax year. This means that if you have already used up your annual ISA allowance, any money you take out cannot then be put back in during the same tax year.
From 6 April 2016 Santander cash ISAs will continue to work as they do today, we will not be offering additional flexibility but some providers will be changing the way in which their ISAs work. Take a look at our information pages to learn more.
