    Transfering HTB to Lifetime ISA

    Transfering HTB to Lifetime ISA 13th Jun 17 at 10:10 PM
    Hi,
    I opened a Help to Buy ISA last year (July 2016) but due to being a poor mature student I haven't paid in mroe than the 1,600 minimum).

    I'll be 40 in Jan, so the clock is ticking on the Lifetime ISA.

    My question is: If I put the 200 in my account now (to get it over 1,600) will this affect my ability to open a LISA in this tax year?

    Confused.

    TIA

    No - you can pay into both a Help to Buy ISA and a Lifetime ISA in the same year.
