How do I open and manage my account?

You can open an account online, in branch or over the phone. Please see the ‘How to apply’ section below for more details.

You can open this ISA with £0 if it’s being funded by an ISA transfer-in, otherwise the minimum deposit is £1. The maximum is £1 million.

You can access your funds and manage your account in branch, or using Online Banking, Barclays Mobile Banking or Telephone Banking – provided you’re registered.


To apply for this cash ISA, you must

  • Be aged 18 or above
  • Be resident in the UK for tax purposes
  • Open this ISA for yourself
  • Have a National Insurance number

To subscribe to a cash ISA, you can’t have subscribed to another cash ISA or used your total annual ISA allowance in a stocks and shares ISA and/or an innovative finance ISA, during the same tax year.

Can I withdraw money?

Yes, you can make 3 withdrawals during the term of the 2-Year Flexible Cash ISA - Issue 17. The maximum value per withdrawal on this cash ISA is 10% of your balance at the time the withdrawal is made.

If you need to, you may close the account or transfer-out the whole balance before the maturity date. This will result in a charge equivalent to 180 days’ tax-free interest based on the current balance at the time. If there’s insufficient interest (or where you have chosen the monthly interest payment frequency option) to cover the charge, we’ll take it from your account, so you may get back less than you deposited. The charge does not apply if your account is closed during the cancellation period, or due to death or bankruptcy.

At the end of the 2-year term the 2-Year Flexible Cash ISA - Issue 17 will convert into an instant access variable rate cash ISA.
