Cash ISAs can be a great way to grow your savings tax-free, no matter what tax band you're in.
But, simply because an account is an ISA, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're getting a good interest rate.
Particularly on older accounts, you may well find that the rate you're getting could have dwindled – in some instances considerably.
There are a couple of good reasons why you'd do a cash ISA transfer:
All cash ISAs have to allow you to transfer your money to another provider. However, there may be a penalty for transferring out – particularly on fixed rate ISAs - and not all providers will let you transfer in previous ISA pots.
Once you have completed the transfer form, you don't need to do a thing. Some ISA providers will pay you interest on the money you wish to transfer from day one.
If the transfer does take longer than 15 working days, your old ISA provider must compensate you by paying the interest rate offered by the new ISA.
