RE: ISA Transfer
Thu 23:25
Oh ... an extra tip ... if you do go for the iWEB account, or maybe any other ISA transfer ... put the transfer application into iWEB and let them 'pull' the existing holdings across. The process will go more efficiently than if you try to get the existing managers to 'push' the holdings to the new account -- after all what do they care if you have to wait, you're leaving anyway!

Also if you have cash/share ISAs and a mixture of managers over the years then iWEB will act as the central coordinators for the operation.

ISA Transfer
Thu 23:20
My family's experiences of ISA transfers have been very different. Four of us transferred existing ISA's into our iWEB accounts.

In each case the total process took about 2-3 weeks. Once the incumbent ISA manager gave up the holdings they were in the iWEB account and tradeable within about 2-3 days. Our experience was that it was the existing ISA managers that were the ones who both dragged their feet and made things more difficult.

On a pragmatic level ... 6 lots of £45 is £270 ... that's a lot of beer tokens for the local ... plus the low cost and flexible dealing made it a no brainer.

For a short while iWEB were so inundated with applications that they raised their one-off joining fee to £200. Having been with iWEB for a while I was so impressed that I paid my daughter's and my son's fee for them to get them into the fold for the longer term.

It can’t stay around £2 indefinitely. Must go either towards £2.20 or my bet is the other way to £1.90. Then I’ll top up

Danieth - It does take weeks to transfer shares out from one broker to another. When I moved from Halifax to IG they even lost some of my shares and took weeks of calls to get them re-assigned. During the transfer I could not even trade. World of pain it was and to top the lot one of my share tanked and I could not trade out. Think carefully before you do it.

Sorry, but did you say it could take months to transfer an I S A to iweb? If so as I,ve already got a non I S A account with hargreaves, perhaps that would be a lot quicker?

danielh, well I suppose there is nothing stopping them changing they way they charge for its service but its been free for the last few years or so. The one caveat is that it takes time to transfer ISA's, months sometimes, in which you loose access to the funds or the ability to trade them. Not great if you have to sell or there is a market crash/rise you want to trade into or out of. I don't know why, in this digital day and age it cant be done much simpler and quicker, oh and without exit penalties. Surely if you are good enought, people will want to stay with you anyway.

Thanks a lot Mike & Gerry, I will have a look, hargreaves would charge me £90 a year for both I S A 's, max £45 each, so Iweb sounds good. The problem is I G was free, but then they changed the rules & now charge, so what's to stop Iweb doing the same in the future. It is free for me to transfer out of I G & I've got until June before they start to charge, so I suppose as long as Iweb don't charge to transfer out if they start charging for holding later on it would be worth moving to them.

"so I will transfer to hargreaves,"

I used to use HL, good service but expensive. I would also recommend Iweb again after they reduced the opening account fee back down to £25 from £250.

I dont know what IG's new charge is but I would say to them you want to move fee free as they have change the terms (costs) thereby saving on any exit fees or penalties they might impose and raise it as a formal complaint if they still want to charge you as you can take it further if need be.

I think I recommend them to you a while back and it might be worth reading this:-

Have a look at iWeb ... no charges for holding ISA's ... £5 per trade dealing cost, free limit orders (within the ISA, £2 outside, discounted on trade) ... special low rate automatic group dividend reinvestment if you want it.

Cost to open the account is a low £25 one-off charge. No interest on cash held though, but free transfers into and out of the account so on the non-ISA side you can just manually sweep your balance into something that is interest bearing.

Very, very professional trading office and back office systems.

Within the family we have six accounts with them and not a bad experience amongst us.

You would be very hard pushed to owe cap gains tax on vod shares, Even if you had bought at £1.50 before the verizon sale' you would probably have a cap gains loss, as the gains would have been realised in the tax year of the verizon sale & the re issue of a reduced amount of vod shares, would result in a loss. The vod share swap would count as almost a 50% cap gains loss. Since the verizon deal, the vod sp has had a bad run ( though good divi's) About 2.40 high, down to 1.90 low, I have moved shares into I S A 's only recently (2 years) because of the 7.5 divi tax & open'd them with I G stockbrokers because there was no charge to hold an I S A , but now they want to charge me, What a rip off, I complained but no good, so I will transfer to hargreaves, (my non I S A broker at a £45 a year each charge. I wonder if I S A's are worth it sometimes?
