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?

Additionally, there are many online resources, courses, and communities that can help guide you in learning how to trade cryptocurrency.
    • What is Foreign Exchange? Foreign exchange (Forex or FX) is the conversion of one currency into another at a specific rate known as the foreign exchange rate. The conversion rates for almost all currencies are constantly floating as they are driven by the market forces of supply and demand. The most traded currencies in the world are the United States dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, and Australian dollar. The US dollar remains the key currency, accounting for more than 87% of total daily value traded.Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates Many factors can potentially influence the market forces behind foreign exchange rates. The factors include various economic, political, and even psychological conditions. The economic factors include a government’s economic policies, trade balances, inflation, and economic growth outlook. Political conditions also exert a significant impact on the forex rate, as events such as political instability and political conflicts may negatively affect the strength of a currency. The psychology of forex market participants can also influence exchange rates. The Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is a decentralized and over-the-counter market where all currency exchange trades occur. It is the largest (in terms of trading volume) and the most liquid market in the world. On average, the daily volume of transactions on the forex market totals $5.1 trillion, according to the Bank of International Settlements’ Triennial Central Bank Survey (2016). The forex market major trading centers are located in major financial hubs around the world, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney. Due to this reason, foreign exchange transactions are executed 24 hours, five days a week (except weekends). Despite the decentralized nature of forex markets, the exchange rates offered in the market are the same among its participants, as arbitrage opportunities can arise otherwise. The foreign exchange market is probably one of the most accessible financial markets. Market participants range from tourists and amateur traders to large financial institutions (including central banks) and multinational corporations. Also, the forex market does not only involve a simple conversion of one currency into another. Many large transactions in the market involve the application of a wide variety of financial instruments, including forwards, swaps, options, etc. Foreign currency exchange (forex) A foreign currency exchange rate is a price that represents how much it costs to buy the currency of one country using the currency of another country. Currency traders buy and sell currencies through forex transactions based on how they expect currency exchange rates will fluctuate. When the value of one currency rises relative to another, traders will earn profits if they purchased the appreciating currency, or suffer losses if they sold the appreciating currency.
