Opening An Isa

Recommended Posts

When you open an ISA online do they contact you or require you to sign anything by post?

I left UK for Australia in February, my wife comes over 3rd April, our house is sold and goes through 1st April.

I know you are supposed to be in the country and a UK taxpayer to open an ISA, but I haven't notified them I've left yet (waiting on P45 from employer) and my wife is obviously there just now.

So if on the 2nd April I opened an ISA for my wife with the maximum amount and I and then invested the maximum amount again on the 6th April am I likely to come up against any obstacles?

Whichever provider you choose, they'll definitely need to send you stuff to sign and return. It's highly likely you'll need to provide ID verification as well.

I opened a shares ISA with Hargreaves and Lansdowne and did it all online. Received stuff in the post, but nothing to return. They did a check through equifax to verify your identity. Ask you very specific details about your standing orders, DDs etc.

That was the Wednesday before last. I then put a load of it in to... Japan. :blink:
