        Can I transfer my Monmouthshire Building Society Cash ISA 9 to another ISA provider?

        • You may transfer your current tax year's Cash ISA subscriptions in whole to another Cash ISA with another ISA manager. The transfer must be the whole amount saved in your Cash ISA, in that tax year, up to the day of the transfer.
        • You are also permitted to transfer your current tax year's Cash ISA subscriptions in whole to a Stocks and Shares ISA and/or Innovative Finance ISA and it will be treated as if you invested directly into the Stocks and Shares ISA and/or Innovative Finance ISA. This allows you to re-subscribe to a Cash ISA later in the same tax year, provided you have not already used up your annual ISA investment allowance.
        • You may transfer any previous tax year's subscriptions in whole or in part to another Cash ISA, Stocks and Shares ISA or Innovative Finance ISA held with another ISA manager, without it affecting your annual ISA investment allowance for the current tax year.

        What if I take a break period from saving in a Cash ISA?

        • If you do not make any subscriptions for a whole tax year you will need to re-apply before subscriptions can recommence.

        How can I cancel my application?

        • You may cancel your application by giving written notice to the Society up to the 14th calendar day (excluding public holidays) following the day the account was opened and we will, without notice or penalty, transfer the balance on the account to another account or refund your money plus interest.
        • In this case, the account will be closed and the subscription will not count towards your ISA subscription limits.
