Can I have more than one Cash ISA in a single tax year?

You cannot fund more than one Cash ISA in the same tax year. If you have already added money to a Cash ISA in this tax year with another provider, then you cannot open and fund a new Cash ISA with Shawbrook unless the total balance of your current tax year Cash ISA is being transferred across to Shawbrook Bank.

However, please be aware you can hold a Stocks and Shares ISA as well as a Cash ISA in the same tax year and split your total annual ISA allowance across both accounts.

The ISA allowance for the 2023/24 tax year is £20,000. This means you can save £20,000 of new money into your ISA in this tax year.

Our Cash ISA maximum balance is £250,000 so you can transfer other ISA balances into your new Shawbrook ISA up to £250,000.

If these balances are from previous tax years, they do not count towards the £20,000 limit in the current tax year 2023/24.

If you're splitting your ISA allowance over several ISAs, the maximum deposit across all of your accounts is £20,000.

If you currently hold a stocks and shares ISA in this tax year, but do not hold a Cash ISA, you can open and fund a Shawbrook Cash ISA.
