    New Cash ISAs (NISAs): The Best Currently Available List 14th Mar 07 at 10:18 PM
    New Cash ISAs (NISAs): The Best Currently Available List


    **Please note: The list of ISAs I have compiled below is continually updated. New ISAs are added as they launch and withdrawn ISAs will be removed from the list. Updates to the list are made during the evening.**

    The current New Cash ISA (NISA) limit is 20,000 for the 2018/19 tax year.

    **As with any financial product, before opening a NISA do ensure that you have read and understood the terms and conditions.**


    All rates are subject to change without notice. Please check all rates and terms before investing.

    If you can think of an NISA I have missed please do send me a PM.

    Same for me, phoned my local Notts BS branch at lunchtime, some kind person had cancelled their appointment this afternoon so staff could fit me in. Took 10 mins, most of which was chatting about house prices and the lovely weather!

    I got the impression this new ISA has generated a lot of enquiries, so may not be available for long.

    This was possibly the first time I have opened an ISA on the first day of the new tax year, but for that interest rate and large monthly pay in I was willing to drop everything and get to the branch asap, not an offer I wanted to miss!

    Principality has raised (!) the interest rates on its fixed term ISAs:

    5 year 1.95%
    3 year 1.85%
    18 month 1.4%

    Best buys

    As from today, these ISAs are available only in branch or agency. They can no longer be opened online.

    They are apparently allowing up to one hour per appointment - so the most any staff member can do is generally 7 per day. I only needed about 20 minutes as a new customer - albeit much of that time was spent discussing other potential products - but I imagine it can very depending on the customer.

    I can't see it being around for long as you say.

    It takes seven working days for chequers to clear but interest is paid from day 1.

    I can't see it being around for long as you say given the rate.

    I'm looking to transfer a matured/upgraded Santander ISA to a flexible ISA somewhere, so I can withdraw and use the cash quite soon, but be able to repay it in if I am able to later.

    Are there any providers that are particularly fast or slow at accepting transfers in? I already have a flexible ISA with Nationwide.

    You can have as many cash ISAs as you want. The only restriction is that all deposits made in the current tax year must be held in the same ISA wrapper. Once the tax year has ended you can split them up to your heart's content.

    I have 2 maturing ISA's on June 1st, I'm looking at Coventry 3yr at 1.40%, it accepts transfers and it can be accessed with a penalty if really needed.
    The other for the smaller amount was the Yorkshire B.S. 2yr fix at 1.25%, that has dropped to 1.15%,that was a surprise, so now possibly Aldemore for 1.2%.
    Knowing my luck I wouldn't be surprised if others drop before I can transfer.

    Just noticed the chelsea has dropped to 1.15% also for 2yr fix

    We always used to open a fixed ISA as soon as possible after the new tax year started, and nearly always stayed with that bank/building society when they matured as they offered a slightly higher rate to their customers.(that was then!)
    However annoyingly some 2yr ISA's was actually 2yr 1 month, and so on, therefore we ended up this time maturing in June, and even have another one 18month fix, ending in October.
    Normally not a big deal except of course it is this time, so possibly slimmer pickings when looking to transfer if rates keep reducing or get pulled early.

    My 2 year fixed ISA matured today. I am now able to add to it. Can I put some funds in and then transfer it all to a fixed rate ISA elsewhere or do I need to transfer it first and then pay into it ?

    You can do it either way round.

    You are probably being paid a pittance in interest on the funds at the moment so the sooner you transfer it the better.

    You can open a new fixed ISA for the new tax year anyway and transfer-in the old. Make sure the new ISA allows transfers-in and for how long - it's often about 60 days but check.

    Edit
    I'm assuming you haven't already contributed to an ISA since 6 April.

    The 5yr Virgin Money E-Isa Issue 241 is at 1.75%, and the interest penalty for early withdrawal is only 180 days which is quite generous really - most of the others have the best part of a year's penalty on them on the five year fixes.

    Transferred my Santander maturing ISA to the Coventry 3yr 1.4% one.
    Had to wait for 30 days before it matured on 1st June before I could apply for transfer.
    Easiest and fastest application ever, probably because I already had an easy access ISA from last year so they had all my details on file.

    Withdrawal penalty of 180 days lost of interest

    Principality FR Cash ISA rates appear to have dropped dramatically from the front page of this thread (1.6% instead of 1.95% for the 5 year and 1.3% instead of 1.85% for the 3 year).
    Time has moved on (much quicker than it used to - or so it seems at my age) and my previous advice on residential telephony has been or is now gradually being overtaken by changes in the retail market. Hence, I have now deleted links to my previous 'pearls of wisdom'. I sincerely hope they helped save some of you money.

    2 or 3 year fixed.
    I'm not sure what to go for.

    I may have some more to invest in 2 years time so a 3 year would mean me missing out being able to add it to my isa then however if rates drop again it would be good to have it in a 3 year fix.
