Withdrawing from a Stocks & Shares ISA

You can withdraw from a Stocks & Shares ISA free of charge, any time, providing the funds you’re withdrawing are fully settled (i.e. no pending deposits or investments).


Step 1 – Selling your investments 

To withdraw any invested funds, you’ll first need to sell down your investments, then, once these sales are complete, withdraw the proceeds from your Available Cash.

If you’re investing in one of our Starting Options, you can sell down your investments in Settings > Withdraw. Here you’ll see a blue banner which prompts you to make cash available to withdraw – by tapping this you’ll have an option to sell down some or all of your investments. 

If you’ve customised your investment allocation, or are investing in our range of ETFs or US stocks, you’ll need to choose which investments to sell. This can be done in Accounts > S&S ISA > Tap on your individual investment(s) > Sell.

Sales are typically complete within 3-5 working days, and you’ll receive a confirmation email to let you know when each sale has completed. 

Please note that when selling investments you may receive back a little more or less than you have chosen to withdraw. This is because prices change daily and it will take one working day to process the sale of your funds.


Step 2 – Withdrawing to your bank account

Once your sale(s) have completed, the proceeds will be sent to your Available Cash, and you can withdraw this to your linked bank account in Settings > Withdraw. Withdrawals from Available Cash are paid out the next available working day

If you’d like to check which bank account you have linked for deposits and withdrawals, you can do so in Settings > Tap your name > Bank accounts > Linked account. You can also request to change your linked bank account on this screen

It's important you know

All investing should be regarded as longer term. The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.
