    H2B and LISA 5th Jan 18 at 5:12 PM
    Hi, just looking for some info which I've not been able to obtain on the official websites.

    If I transfer a H2B ISA into a LISA will I just get the 25% 'bonus' on my contributions (as in LISA) or the 25% bonus on contributions plus accrued interest (which, as I understand it, is the case with the H2B ISA)?

    You'll get the bonus on any interest earned before 6 April 2017 I believe.
    Any interest from this year would also get the bonus, but would eat into the 4000 you can deposit this year I think.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    So I'll need to calculate the interest on the 17/18 contributions and take it and the money saved off the 4k, rather than just put 1500 in (I opened with 100)?
