(‘The Regulations’).

1.4 We will notify you if, by reason of any failure to satisfy the provisions of the ISA Regulations, your ISA has, or will, become void.
1.5 The maximum investment you can make to your cash ISA in any one tax year must not exceed the annual cash limit specified in the ‘Regulations’.
1.6 We will satisfy ourselves that any person to whom we delegate any of our functions or responsibilities under the terms agreed with you is competent to carry out those functions and responsibilities.

4.4 Transfers-in from other ISA providers are not permitted.
4.5 Deposits in future tax years are not permitted.
5 - Cancellation
You should not invest if you think you will need to access your money during the fixed rate period. Once the account is opened, you have 14 days after the account opening date to notify us in writing that you want to change your mind (the 14 days excludes public holidays). If you notify us within this time, then we will, without notice or penalty, help you switch to another one of our accounts or give you back your money together with any interest it has earned.
6 – Withdrawals
No withdrawals are allowed from this fixed rate cash ISA until after the maturity date.
7 – ISA Transfers Out
7.1 On your instruction, your ISA can be transferred in full to another ISA provider in accordance with the ISA Regulations relating to transfers.
7.2 Where you transfer your current year’s subscriptions from one type of ISA to another, the subscriptions are treated as if they were made to the receiving ISA provider. For example, if your current year’s cash ISA subscriptions are transferred to a stocks and shares ISA, they are treated as if they were made to the stocks and shares ISA so you are able to subscribe to a cash ISA following the transfer – subject to the annual subscription limit.
7.3 You may transfer previous tax year’s subscriptions to a cash ISA or another type of ISA held with another ISA provider, without it affecting your annual ISA investment allowance for the current tax year.
7.4 Cash ISA to cash ISA transfers must take place within 15 business days of the transfer instruction being received by the new ISA provider unless the investor stipulates the 15 days starts on a later date.
7.5 ISA transfers during the fixed term will be subject to 180 days’ loss of interest calculated on the closing balance. If there is insufficient interest to cover the charge, then the difference will be taken from the money in the account.
8 - Interest
8.1 Interest is calculated on a daily basis on the balance in the account. Provided the account complies with the ‘Regulations’ all interest arising will be free of UK taxation. The taxation of ISAs can be changed at any time without notice. The interest rate is fixed from the date of account opening until maturity of the fixed rate term.
8.2 Interest is paid annually on March 31st each year and on maturity. Interest can be added to your account or paid into a nominated bank account (or other suitable Monmouthshire Building Society account).
8.3 As this is a two year fixed rate cash ISA, an annual statement will be sent.
9 - Maturity
We will write to you before the fixed term is due to end to let you know the maturity options that are available for you to select. If you have not notified us of your decision before the maturity date, then on maturity, the account will revert to the Society’s Easy ISA or the nearest equivalent available at that time.
10 - Closure
Closure of your fixed rate cash ISA will be allowed at any time during the fixed rate period, subject to 180 days’ loss of interest calculated on the balance on the day of closure. If there is insufficient interest to cover the charge the difference will be taken from the money in the account.
