ISA season 2017/18 - FAQs

Recommended Posts

I have a stocks & shares ISA account with an open provider, can I open one with IG?

You can only pay into one stocks & shares ISA in each tax year.  So, if you have one from the 2016/17 tax year with another provider, you'll be able to open one with us for the 2017/18 tax year.

 

Is stamp duty payable in an ISA account?

UK stamp duty is still payable on the purchase of certain UK shares within the ISA account, and is 0.5% of the consideration (excluding AIM shares).  Irish stamp duty also applies, levied at 1%.

 

I have un-invested cash in my ISA from a previous tax year, can I use the funds to purchase shares?

You're able to use any funds in an ISA to purchase shares, regardless of what tax year the funds were deposited.  However, if you haven't used up your full allowance in a given tax year then you cannot combine this with your new subscription limit - any unused allowance will be lost and cannot be rolled over.

 

Can I split my allowance between a cash ISA and a stocks & shares ISA?

Yes, as long as you don't exceed your allowance (£20,000 for 2017/18)!

 

Can I withdraw my funds from my ISA account and then put some back?

Yes, with the introduction of the flexible ISA you can make unlimited withdrawals from your ISA and then 'top up' the balance without using up more allowance.  For example, if you had £10,000 in a 2015/16 ISA and then withdrew it in the 2016/17 tax year, you would then be able to add £25,240 (£10,000 2015/16 + full £15,240 allowance 2016/17) until 5 April 2017.  Be aware that if you do not replace the funds then you can't roll them into the next tax year, and any withdrawn allowance will be lost.

 

Please do post any more questions here!

 

Thanks,

Hannah

Hi Hannah,

 

Can you answer some questions for me please:

 

1) Is there a Bed & ISA service where you can request shares held in an IG share dealing account to be transferred (sold and re-purchased) within the ISA?

 

2) Is there a dividend reinvestment programme? If so, what are the charges?

 

3) With regard to the current rewards offer for transferring shares or an ISA from other brokers to IG, are the rewards calculated per account? i.e. a separate reward amount for transfers to a share dealing account plus a separate reward amount for ISA transfers (based on different the reward bands in the offer) or are all transfers-in added together to arrive at the reward amount for the aggregate amount transferred?

 

Also is there currently a time limit on this offer?

 

4) Lastly, I understand there are no fees for transferring shares out from either the IG share dealing account or IG ISA, but as such are there account closure fees for either?

 

Thanks

 

TCA

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
