Can I lodge shares in my ISA?

You can’t lodge shares directly into your ISA unless they come from Save As You Earn (SAYE).

You can add share certificates to your Investment Account. However, you’ll then need to sell them, pay all proceeds into the ISA – and then repurchase the shares through your ISA. This is known as Bed and ISA.

Bed & ISA can also be used for existing shares in your Investment Account that you want to move into your ISA as part of your annual allowance.
