Suppose that someone has had for several years a stocks and shares ISA and, several months ago, put in the full £20,000 for 2017-18. There is now well over £4,000 in cash in the ISA, as well as various shares. This person now opens a new S&S LISA with the same provider. My question is: Can £4,000 cash be moved from the ISA to the LISA in this tax year? AJ Bell says no, but Hargreaves Landsdown actually have a form for doing exactly this. Who is correct? Is it allowed legally but AJ Bell are just slow off the mark in comparison with HL to provide the facility? Or are HL mistaken to allow it? I would be grateful for a definitive answer from anyone who actually knows, e.g. a professional compliance officer or similar. Thanks.
