    S&S ISA contibutions 20th Mar 17 at 2:34 PM
    Can I pay the remaining money of my ISA allowance in to my S&S ISA for this tax year in "safe" funds i.e. Trojan/SL GARDS/Newton Real Return, then pay £20,000 in on 6ht April - then would I be allowed to sell those units in TY17/18 and buy in to other funds without impacting my 17/18 ISA allowance?

    You can do that.

    Or you can just put the money into your 2016/17 S&S ISA and not spend it on anything yet- so it just sits as cash, then you won't need to sell anything to get money to buy whatever fund it is that you really want to buy inside the S&S ISA during 2017/18. In other words, buying a low volatility fund as a placeholder may not really be necessary if it is not going to be for a long period of time and you might not want to take risk for minimal returns.

    Similarly you could put the 2016/17 in a cash ISA and then when you want to buy some investment funds later in 2017/8, transfer some or all of that cash ISA into the S&S ISA ; it still won't use up your 17/18 allowance if it's 16/17 contributions.

    Ask yourself the question: "After I put money into my S&S ISA, how do I normally use it
    to buy investments?"

    When you have the answer, don't do that this time.
