Questions regarding old Isas

Hi all,

I’ve been trying to find an answer to this everywhere with no luck and i’m wondering if anyone here knows the answer?

Once i create a new isa in April, can i still use dividends that come into my old isa to invest into buying more shares in my old isa? Also am i able to sell and buy shares in my old isa while contributing to a new one?

Cheers! :slight_smile:

Iirc the rules around ISAs are regarding contributions not dividends.

If in doubt give HMRC a bell. They’re really helpful!

Dividends earned (and reinvested) in old ISAs do not count towards the £20k allowance.

You are able to sell and buy in your old ISA whilst contributing new funds only to the new one.


I absolutely love ISA’s. Tax free income for life.
1 investment can pay you forever, absolutely fantastic. Regular contributions and your flying.
I have a very small pension but rightly or wrongly all my focus now and going forward is on my ISA’s.

Yes, everything is protected provided it remains within the ISA package.

But you get tax relief on pension contributions. If you are a higher rate tax payer that’s 40%. If you a young I understand you dont want to lock it down though
