Multiple years ISA distinctions?


Recommended Posts

Question about my ISA account on IG, if I have more than one years ISA on IG is it seperated in the ISA account section? Or does each year of ISA open up a new account and therefore subsequent fees?
The reason I ask is I'm transfering a previous years ISA to IG from Fidelity and the cash element has gone over into the ISA account (still waiting for the shares to come over). But there is no distinction it is a separate years ISA.
It all just comes under the account ISA, even though there are now two separate years of ISA in there.. is this normal or a mistake they have made?
Thanks and Happy New Year!!

For the record, transfering from Fidelity to IG has so far taken two months and I have spent 10hrs on the phone sent 10 emails.  Both parties blame each other for the delay and to date they have only transferred the cash element (which I now suspect they have messed up!).  Not being able to speak directly to either transfers team directly and having to go through helpdesk is constantly dealing with middle men and it's a big game of Chinese whispers.

I have not been able to trade my ISA for 2 months and have lost out on opportunities.  I have lost out financially and it has cost me.

The transfers system is a complete joke between companies and has given me anxiety and stress and cost me money.

Hey @Matt5100

All your ISA cash and stock is held in one account. We have 2018-2019 allowance in the same account as your 2019-2020 allowance. You don't get charged double fees. 

The stock transfer always takes a little bit longer than the cash to come across. If you need an update you can always live chat or email us if you need us :)

When we receive cash and stock from other providers they let us know which tax year it falls under. 

I hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else by '@' me :) 

All the best

    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again. 
    • Hey all,  Unlike some other brokers IG do not trade against clients and don't benefit when our clients lose. We hedge the same way as the majority of our clients (so if 60% were long and 40% were short we would hedge those 20% long that aren't covered).  We have no benefit when traders lose. We make money from spread and commission so if anything we want out traders to win so they will continue trading with us.  Unfortunately I can't be account specific and if you believe something is wrong on your account please reach out to us as I can't assist with this.  If you have any questions on this please let me know by quoting my response.  All the best,  Charlotte 
    • Hey,  Thanks for your post.  If you held the shares through the ex div date you will receive the funds 1-2 working days after the pay date on your non-leveraged accounts.  Leverages accounts (CFD and Spread betting) have dividend adjustments meaning we adjust the price of the shares on the platform and make credits/ debits accordingly.  All the best
