You do not have to give notice to make a withdrawal. For the account to remain open, you must maintain a minimum balance of £10.

These terms also apply to closure and transfers out to other ISA providers.
Withdrawals from your account can be re-deposited during the same tax year without counting towards your ISA subscriptions. Interest paid out during the tax year is classed as a withdrawal and can be re-deposited during the same tax year. Withdrawals are deemed to be firstly of current years subscriptions, and secondly of previous years funds. Replacement deposits are deemed to be firstly of previous years funds and secondly of current years subscriptions.
6 - Interest
Interest is variable and 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.

For example, if your current years 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 free to subscribe to a cash ISA following the transfer – subject to the overall subscription limit.
