Put large sum in Moneybox ISA this year, can I move it to Freetrade later?

(Not another “when are transfers in coming?” question - honest!)

I’ve got a Moneybox stocks and shares ISA that has small amount in - few hundred pounds of which was added this April.
But of course I cannot trade shares in that.

I’ve just opened Freetrade ISA so I can trade in ISA wrapper.

Aware I cannot pay into that this tax year, as I’ve paid into Moneybox ISA.

I have a lump sum of 15k which I want to use in FT ISA.
If I pay this now into Moneybox, can I then transfer the whole Moneybox amount into FT ISA when transfers in allowed?
eg is this a sensible way to get funds into my FT ISA and which keeps tax free benefits?

Thank you

Yes, that should work. My understanding is that after transferring the ISA, you can still only add new money to Moneybox this year. But with your £15k transferred, you at least won’t be paying Moneybox’s high 0.45% on all that, but Freetrades fixed £36 instead, which will save you quite a bit.
