How do I close my ISA account?

If you want to transfer your ISA to another provider, please arrange the transfer via the new provider. If you close or take money out of an ISA it will lose its tax free status. If you are simply looking to withdraw from your ISA and not close the account, you are able to withdraw and replace money as often as you like from both current and previous years’ subscriptions on your Instant Access Cash ISA. Should you wish to replace what you have withdrawn, we recommend you do so by 5pm on the 5th April in the same tax year it was withdrawn. This will ensure that any funds are in your account before the cut off deadline at the end of the tax year at midnight on 5th April.

If you want to close your account please complete our PDF closure form or alternatively you can call us on 0345 678 5678*. We can close your account immediately and repay the balance to you. This can be sent to your chosen account, along with any outstanding interest.

For all Fixed Rate ISA's a fee will be applied that is equal to 90 days interest on the balance of your account.
