ISA transfers in are not permitted from any ISA for this product, including from existing Skipton ISAs, for the first 12 months.
After the first 12 months, we will accept ISA transfer requests to this account. For more information on transferring your existing ISA to our Bonus Cash ISA after the first 12 months, please read our Transferring Your ISA page.

If you would like to transfer your Cash ISA held with Skipton to another ISA provider, you will need to complete the ISA Transfer Authority Form supplied by your new provider.

Annual subscriptions must always be transferred in full for the current tax year.

You can transfer your flexible ISA to another provider, but current and previous years' ISA allowances are treated differently. If you transfer your full balance to another ISA provider, previous years' ISA savings will no longer be flexible if you've withdrawn and not replaced before the transfer happens.
