    What happens to my Help To Buy ISA Bonus if i transfer to a LISA 13th Jun 17 at 8:56 PM
    Hello,


    I currently have a Help To Buy ISA which currently has 4800.


    I have opened a Skipton LISA account and added the 1 recommended.


    When I transfer the Help To Buy ISA to the LISA next year, what happens to the government bonus? (currently 1200 on 4800)


    May be a daft question, but can't find the answer anywhere.

    Nothing happens to it. Your Help to Buy ISA funds become LISA contributions which attract a 25% bonus at the same time as other LISA contributions.
