Have a question about Yorkshire Bank Cash ISAs? Have a look at some of the questions we’re asked most often.
Please note that due to the current tax year ending on non-banking days over a weekend, online deposits and applications for the 2019/2020 tax year will need to be received and completed before 5:00pm on Friday 3rd April 2020.
Applications and deposits in branch can be made during normal business hours on Friday 3rd April 2020. Any cheques posted must also be received by this date.
Telephone applications for tax year 2019/2020 will not be accepted after Tuesday 31st March 2020 to allow time for documentation to be completed by Friday 3rd April 2020. Applications for tax year 2020/2021 will commence on Monday 6th April 2020.
Transactions processed via any channel on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th April 2020 will be processed to the ISA on the next business day, Monday 6th April 2020. As this is the next tax year the deposits will be classed as a subscription to your 2020/2021 ISA Allowance.
 Business Day means any day (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays) on which banks generally are open in the City of London for the transaction of normal banking business
To open a Cash ISA you must be aged 16 or over, to open a Stocks & Shares ISA you must be aged 18 or over.
You also must be resident in the UK for tax purposes (ask your tax office if you are in any doubt about this), or a Crown employee, such as a diplomat or a member of the armed forces, who is working overseas and paid by the government. The spouse or civil partner of one of these people can also open an ISA.
You cannot hold an ISA jointly with, or on behalf of, anyone else.
There are limits on the number of ISA accounts you can subscribe to each tax year. You can put money into one Cash ISA and one Stocks & Shares ISA.
In different tax years, you can choose to save with different managers. There are no limits to the number of different ISAs you can hold over time.
Customers have the option to save all or some of their full allowance in cash, subject to the overall annual maximum amount of £20,000. You can pay into one of each type of ISA (Cash ISA and Stocks & Shares ISA) during the tax year, in any combination of amounts, provided you do not exceed the overall limit. For example:
Yes, as long as you don’t exceed the ISA allowance limit for that tax year. The annual tax year limits apply to the amount paid into your account in total that tax year, not the account balance.
On a Flexi Cash ISA any subscriptions you make in the current tax year can be withdrawn and replaced without the replacement money counting towards your annual subscription limit. The replacement money has to be paid back into your Flexi Cash ISA in the same tax year it is withdrawn or you will lose the ability to replace it.
If you wish to close your account you need to give us written notice. The address to write to is Cash ISA Team, Retail Product Fulfilment, Bering House, Mariner Court, Clydebank Business Park, Clydebank, G81 2NR. If you choose to close your Cash ISA Fixed Rate Bond before maturity, a charge will be payable. The charge is dependent on the number of days to Maturity and is detailed in the Terms and Conditions.
No, you may keep your account open and subscribe in subsequent tax years, subject to the terms and conditions of the products. You can also withdraw as much as you like, subject to the terms and conditions, but you can only subscribe up to the relevant annual ISA allowance limit.
Annually on 6th April you get a new ISA allowance, regardless of the present balance in your account, or subscriptions made during the previous year.
To ensure that you do not lose the tax benefits of your ISA, you must not close or withdraw funds from your account. To transfer funds between ISAs, you must complete a Transfer Authority Form with the provider that you want to transfer the funds to. Your new provider will then contact your existing provider to have the funds transferred for you.
You can transfer all or part of the balance in your Cash ISA account that relates to previous tax year subscriptions (subject to terms and conditions of the products that you are transferring between). If you wish to pay into your Cash ISA in the current tax year and then transfer it, all of your current tax year subscriptions must be transferred in full, not part.
Yes, but you must transfer all of the £1,000 of your current tax year subscriptions. If you transfer your current tax year subscriptions to another provider, you will not be able to pay into a Cash ISA with your old provider until the start of the next tax year, unless you transfer it back first.
You can only pay into one Cash ISA in any tax year, however you can transfer the current tax year subscription between providers. You can hold multiple Cash ISA products from previous tax years with different providers.
We will open your account as soon as we receive a valid application and your initial payment. To do this we need to confirm your identity and address. Some customers may be required to provide further evidence and in those cases we will write to you. Please note - we would never request that you send us original documentation.
Funds in your Cash ISA will start to earn interest once your account has been opened and your initial payment has cleared.

It will take up to 15 working days to complete a Cash ISA transfer and it will take up to 30 working days to complete a Stocks & Shares ISA transfer.
