Withdraw ISA - UK

Hi everyone

It’s really great to be here.

Just wanted to ask you - I have opened an ISA with a provider that I didn’t quite like so I have decided to withdraw funds and close the account within the 7 days cooling off period. Can I open another ISA in the same financial year, as I assume my account is treated now as never opened? I have confirmation from the previous provider that I am free to open another one and that won’t be a problem but I just want to know your views on that.


Yes, that’s exactly how the ISA rules work. It’s not specific to provider, it’s a general rule that you can change your mind within seven days and open another account.

When it is worth it to open an ISA based on your portfolio value and capital gains?

Let’s assume you’re not a trader and go for dividend income. £2000 are generally free as dividend income per year. If you make £2036 in dividends, an ISA at £3 per month is worth it. But you can’t just switch your stocks from general to ISA account whenever you want, so this will need some planning on your side beforehand.
