Santander cash ISA transfers in are allowed, applications must be received by 28 February 2019.

You can transfer the full balance of your ISA to another provider at any time, a charge equivalent to 120 days' interest will be applied. You will need to contact your new ISA provider to arrange the transfer.

A subscription is any deposit (or payment) made by you into an ISA.
Minimum opening balance of £500. You can open the account with a zero balance if you are transferring in existing ISAs with a balance of at least £500.

The ISA allowance for the 2018/19 tax year is £20,000.

Deposits can be made up to and including 28 February 2019. No subsequent additional deposits allowed.

This 2 year fixed rate ISA is a cash ISA. Please be aware that if you make deposits for the 2018/2019 tax year which are less than the full ISA allowance for that tax year, you won’t be able to pay into another cash ISA in the same tax year to use the remaining allowance.

You can subscribe your ISA allowance into a cash ISA, a stocks and shares ISA, an innovative finance ISA and a lifetime ISA or a combination of the four. Santander do not offer innovative finance ISAs or lifetime ISAs.

For example, if you subscribe to this Fixed Rate ISA you won’t also be able to subscribe to one of our other cash ISAs (including fixed rate ISAs, variable rate ISAs and Help to Buy: ISA) this tax year.

A tax year runs from 6th April in one year to 5th April the next.

This product doesn’t accept additional permitted subscriptions.

  • Statements are issued annually in March.
Can I withdraw money?

Partial withdrawals aren’t allowed. You can withdraw money by closing the account; a charge equivalent to 120 days’ interest will be applied.

Any money that you withdraw yourself from your Santander ISA will lose its tax-free status and if repaid back into an ISA, will count towards your current tax year’s ISA limit.

We aren’t offering additional flexibility on ISAs but some providers are offering this feature. Those providers may allow you to replace funds that you have withdrawn with them without affecting the ISA limit.

Additional information

You can cancel the account within 14 days of opening and your money will be returned in full with interest.

The favourable tax treatment of ISAs may change in the future.

Transferring an ISA from another provider

To transfer in an ISA from another provider please complete one of the forms below. The cash ISA transfer form can be completed and submitted online. If you're transferring into a Fixed Rate ISA with us, we need to receive your transfer form 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 the money that you have paid into an ISA in previous tax years. If you wish to transfer money that you have paid into an ISA in the current tax year, you will need to transfer all of the amount 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 your current years ISA allowance. Santander isn't providing advice as to whether transferring your ISA(s) is right for you. Transferring certain types of ISAs could affect the bonus you receive and you could be charged by your existing provider.

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.
