What does ISA Account reactivation do?


Raju23

Question

Hello,

I opened a Stocks & Shares ISA with IG in 2022-2023 tax year and funded it straightaway. I invested part of the money in a Smart portfolio ISA and left the other part for Share Dealing.

I hadn't used the account for a while but needed to withdraw some of the funds last month (Jan/2024). When I logged in, the only way of getting access to the S&S ISA account was to accept and submit a popup to 're-activate' the ISA account. I had to accept it so I could withdraw some of the funds I needed. I still have some cash and still holding the smart portfolio investment from the previous year.

I haven't added any new funds to the IG S&S ISA in the 2023-2024 tax year.

Now I want to open a new Stocks & Shares ISA with a different provider (not IG) in the current 2023-2024 tax year. Will I be okay to do this or will this be a problem because I re-activated my old S&S ISA with IG and withdrew funds from it?

Kindly advise.

Thanks,

Raju.

Dear @Raju23,

Please note that ISA rules state that you can only pay into a single stock and shares ISA each tax year. You are free to open an additional ISA with a different provider each new tax year, but can only pay money into one.

All the best,

Thank you for reviewing my scenarion and confirming that I can open another S&S ISA with a different provider for the 2023-2024 tax year.


When I open the new S&S ISA with another provider, can I also transfer the cash in my IG S&S ISA into that new account? I want to continue to hold the investment in the IG Smart Portfolio ISA though. How do I achieve this please?

Dear @Raju23,

Just to clarify, you're looking to transfer the cash out to another broker while keeping the stocks in your Smart portfolio ISA, correct?

Thanks,

The prospect of owning and trading in-game items through NFTs adds an exciting dimension to gameplay, offering real rewards and enhancing immersion. The marketplace controlled by the NADA token seems promising, providing a platform for users to engage in trading activities within the gaming ecosystem. I'm optimistic about NADA's potential to carve a niche for itself in the competitive gaming world, especially with its focus on creating a fun and economically rewarding gaming environment. Looking forward to exploring this new gaming frontier!
    • I see DIMO's innovative platform as a game-changer in the automotive industry, offering a new level of connectivity and transparency. With DIMO, I can envision having access to valuable vehicle data that can enhance my driving experience and provide me with insights into the car's condition. This not only makes the car-buying process easier but also instills confidence in the vehicle's history and performance.
