How to transfer your ISA to us.

Some things to consider when transferring your ISA to us

  • You can transfer a stocks and shares ISA or a cash ISA held with another provider to a Legal & General stocks and shares ISA.
  • We don't charge a transfer fee but other providers may.
  • You can transfer both a cash ISA and a stocks and shares ISA from previous years in full or in part.
  • If you wish to transfer the current tax year's cash ISA or stocks and shares ISA you'll need to transfer the full amount.
  • Transferring to us will not affect this year's ISA allowance and you won't lose out on your tax benefits.
  • The minimum transfer amount is £500.

There are a few simple steps to follow:

PO Box 6080

We're unable to transfer ISAs online as HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) require us to get a signature from you. They do this to make sure you’ve authorised the ISA transfer - so it's a step to protect you.  Once you’ve posted your completed transfer form to us you can let us do the rest.

Important information

  • Your transfer will take a minimum of 14 days.
  • Whilst your ISA transfer is being processed you can’t transfer it back, but you can withdraw your money and we won’t charge you for doing this.
  • Some of our funds may invest overseas. Changes in exchange rates between currencies may cause the value of your investment and the level of any income to rise or fall.
  • Whilst your ISA transfer is taking place you won't benefit from any rise in the markets and you could lose some income or growth.
  • If you withdraw the money during an ISA transfer, you may not get back the full amount that you transferred and you will lose this amount from your ISA allowance.
  • The tax efficiency of ISAs is based on current rules. The current tax situation may not be maintained. The benefit of the tax treatment depends on individual circumstances.
  • The value of your investment and any income from it may fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed.
  • You may get back less than you invest.
  • Although there is no fixed term you should consider a stocks and shares ISA to be medium to long term, ideally five years or more.
