Default Is it too late to put money in my ISA

I haven't put any money into my Barclays Tax Beater ISA for the 08/09 year because I lost the will to live when they took forever to sort out getting a payment into the right tax year. I don't want to lose out on putting in money for 08/09 but is it took late to start a new one for this year? Or shall I just try again to put in money into my Barclays ISA for 08/09 and then start a new one with a different company for the 09/10 year later on.

I'm a bit confused because I know you can only have one ISA a year. Help me please!

Put it into the barclays and then look for an ISA which accepts transfers in the new tax year

You can have as many ISA's as you want in a year but can only put in 3600 (not sure if only can put into one or can put some in one and some in another)

Don't lose out on the tax free status, just bang in 3,600, then look for a new provider for 09/10

Second line is incorrect.

You can only deposit money with one cash ISA provider in any one tax year, although it does not have to be the provider that you may have used the previous year.

Thanks everyone. Looks like I'd better get to Barclays pronto so that I can try to put in my 08/09 money.

:confused: Hang on, to make it crystal clear. (oh the pun)

If this tax year, I paid in £3600 with Lloyds TSB Cash ISA but I can put in new £3600 with someone else in new tax year?

Q. How many ISAs can I have?
A. There are limits on the number of ISA accounts you can subscribe to each tax year. You can only put money into one cash ISA and one stocks and shares ISA - one each for cash and stocks and shares.

But in different years, you could choose to save with different managers. There are no limits on the number of different ISAs you can hold over time.
I am reading this right? But what if in third year, you got good cash ISA that accept in transfers but can you transfer from ISA in first year and ISA in second year to ISA in third year at same time?
Attempting to build Sustainable Portfolio with twenty new companies. Bought ACE, BSIF, EDEN, GOOD, GRPH, UKW, ONE, TRIG and VRS so far.

Transfers don't count towards your yearly limits.
Every little bit counts.

Yes.
So if you had used your maximum 3600 each time....In yr 3 if you open your ISA which allows transfers in you can either leave your previous yr1 and yr2 where they are or you can transfer them into where you have your yr 3 isa. So instead of having 3 x 3600 isa's you in effect have 1 x 10,800 isa ( + all your interest on top)
