Transferring your ISA

Transferring your existing Cash ISA or Stocks & Shares ISA to a Leek United Cash ISA is easy.

Remember, don’t withdraw from an ISA in order to transfer to another provider as you will lose the tax-free benefits. Instead, Leek United offer a transfer service to do this for you. It is always a good idea to check with your current provider whether any charges apply for transferring your ISA to another provider.
