Hi there,

Sorry still a bit of a novice when it comes to stocks and shares trading,

So I opened up a trading 212 shares ISA account a few months back (less than a year ago)

now in the UK (not sure about USA) you can only open up one ISA Account a year,

I opened but never used a IG shares ISA  since then and have decided to start the process on doing a asset transfer from 212 to IG due to the vast amount of stocks IG hold to 212,

what I am asking is, is this something that would get me in trouble or would the '1 per year rule' only apply if I was to use my IG account and still use my 212 account,

but as I am doing a transfer I am ok and this doesn't apply in this case?

Any light shed on this matter would be most useful!!

Many Thanks

During the transfer process the tax year of when you deposited the money with Trading 212 will be taken into account.  If its in the last financial year then the deposited amount will not affect your allowance for this year. 

You can transfer between ISA providers at any time. You should be able to open another stocks and shares ISA in the same tax year and transfer out of the old one.  HMRC are concerned about you not going above the £20k allowance per year.

    • Thanks for the feedback.  I currently use TV for my technical analysis, as the features available on IG platform are not quite on par. The fundamental data functionality is good if you are looking / using at a micro level, but not quite what I'm after.  Providers I had in mind were the likes of Stockopedia, MorningStar premium etc. - something that can a consolidated view in an easily digestable / usable manner.   
    • If in the UK you can buy physical silver (coins or bars) from the royal mint or royal mint authorised dealers. Just search the internet. You probably want to buy whatever is captial gains tax exempt (I think silver britannias are). Shop around for the best price and also be careful about VAT as I think you may have to pay that on some purchases and not on others . Of course when you buy physical silver in UK as an investment you also have to consider what GBP/ USD is up to as any change in  exchange rate in future will affect your return (as silver is priced in USD). If you don't want physical then you could buy shares in a silver ETF (eg. SSLN) which is  backed by physical metal or if you want to spread bet it you could buy spot silver. It all depends why you want to buy it. If just as an investment then you get a better return buying etf or spread betting (easier to cash in when you want to and potentially less hassles with tax). If you are worried the banking system will freeze up and you can't get money out at some point in the future ( possibly not likely but you can never rule it out) then it's physical - stored outside the banking system either with a company or stored somewhere by yourself. I'm not an expert on this but have just read a bit about it lately as lots of articles suggesting silver will go higher over the next months / year.  
    • I don't know. But there is good profit taking.
