ISAs

Opening a new ISA

A cash ISA (Individual Savings Account) is a tax-free way to save. On other savings accounts, you may have to pay income tax on the interest you earn. The interest on a cash ISA is free from tax, so all the interest you earn, you keep.

Managing your existing Nationwide cash ISA(s)

You can do this by filling in our transfer request form. You’ll need to check your manager is on our list of managers who accept online transfers. If it isn’t, please visit us in branch.

Our form allows you do a partial or full transfer of the funds you have in the cash ISA you have with another manager. You can also choose to close the account you’re transferring from – and make sure any interest you’ve earned but has not yet been paid will also be transferred to your Nationwide cash ISA.

What you need for the form:

  • Your Nationwide cash ISA account number
  • Your National Insurance number
  • The sort code and account number of the cash ISA you want to transfer in

Please note: if you want to transfer a stocks and shares ISA, you’ll need to request a transfer pack instead.

Moving the money in from another account you have with Nationwide

If you use our Banking app or Internet Bank, you can easily transfer funds between your Nationwide accounts.


Or you can pop in to a Nationwide branch – please remember to bring in the details for the accounts you’re moving money between.


Top tip: if you want to move all the money out of a Nationwide cash ISA you have, you may like to consider our account closure process, which will also ensure that any interest you’ve earned but have not yet been paid will also move across.


Moving the money in from a non-ISA account you have with another manager

Please follow your manager’s process for moving money. You need to move your money to account number 33333334 and sort code 07 00 93.

Important: as part of this transaction, please make sure you include your ISA roll number (split into a four-number/nine number format: – for example: 4567/987654321. This can be found on our Banking app, Internet Bank, or in your passbook).


Moving money between Nationwide accounts

If you use our Banking app or Internet Bank, you can easily transfer funds between your Nationwide accounts.


Or you can pop in to a Nationwide branch and we’ll help you move the money – please remember to bring in the account numbers/sort codes for the accounts you’re moving money between.


Moving the money to a non-ISA account you have with another manager

If you have a Nationwide current account and you’re registered for our Internet Bank/Banking app, please first transfer the amount of money you want to move into your current account. You’ll then be able to move this money from your current account to a non-ISA account (i.e. a regular savings or current account) you hold with another manager.

If you don’t have a current account and you’re not registered for our Internet Bank, you’ll need to go to one of branches. Please bring the account numbers and sort codes of the accounts you want to move between.


Transfer your cash ISA to another manager

You’ll need to speak to your other manager about their transfer process.
