There are probably too many unknowns to provide a useful answer though - as with every question about what happens after the referendum.
Just to look on the bright side - if you move your money into English banks you might have to "import" it back into an independent Scotland, costing you currency conversion fees. Unless we have the pound like Uncle Alex says we will (after all, what would David Cameron and Ed Balls have to say in the matter, let's just ignore them).

What is unreasonable about that? It's already taxed by the Westminster government. All governments have to raise money through taxation.
