Transferring from another cash ISA with us
10.3 If you wish to transfer your Current Tax Year Subscriptions in full and/or Previous Tax Year Subscriptions in full or in part from a cash ISA held with us to this account, this can be done by contacting us.

Transferring to an ISA with another ISA Manager
10.4 You can transfer your Current Tax Year Subscriptions in full (including interest) and/or Previous Tax Year Subscriptions in full or in part (including interest) to another ISA Manager without loss of tax-free status. On receipt of a valid transfer instruction from your new ISA Manager, we will process the request by sending the funds requested and accompanying information to the new ISA Manager within five business days of the date of receipt (the full transfer process may take up to 15 business days). Any such transfer outside of the Cancellation Period will be subject to either Condition 9.2 or 9.3. Any applicable charges will be deducted before the balance is transferred to the new ISA Manager.
10.5 If you are transferring Previous Tax Year Subscriptions to another ISA Manager, and you have made withdrawals that relate to those subscriptions, you will not be able to replace those with the new ISA Manager without them counting towards your annual ISA subscription limit. (In addition, if you have chosen to have interest paid out to you, rather than kept in the account, those withdrawals cannot be replaced with the new ISA Manager without them counting towards your annual ISA subscription limit). Any such transfer outside of the Cancellation Period will be subject to either Condition 9.2 or 9.3.
Transferring to another cash ISA with us
10.6 You can transfer your Current Tax Year Subscriptions in full (including interest) and/or Previous Tax Year Subscriptions in full or in part (including interest) to another suitable cash ISA held with us, without loss of tax-free status.

11. Tax
11.1 We will notify you in writing if this account becomes or will become invalid because of a failure to satisfy the provisions of the ISA Regulations.
11.2 ISAs are a savings scheme initiated by the Government and, as such, are subject to change by them. For example, the favourable tax treatment may not be maintained and it is dependent on the ISA holder's individual circumstances.
11.3 If the holder of this ISA dies, interest will be paid tax-free, up until either the completion of the administration of their estate, the date this ISA is closed or on the third anniversary of their death, whichever is the earliest.
