It's quick and easy to open an ISA online. Here are a few steps to help you get started:
- Log in first. If you're already a Barclays customer, we can use any details we have on record.
- Once your new account is open, add cash to start investing. You can either make a debit card payment from your nominated bank account or transfer existing investments you hold elsewhere to your account. Once you’ve paid in, you can start investing straight away.
Make sure before you transfer an account that you don’t have to pay penalties or give up valuable benefits. For more information on transferring investments please visit our Transfer accounts to us page.
The value of investments can fall as well as rise and you could get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek independent advice.
Transferring your ISAs doesn’t affect their tax-efficient status. But you should make sure that you don’t have to pay penalties or give up valuable benefits. Tax rules can change and whether they benefit you will depend on your circumstances.
