Can I still make payments to my ISA if I no longer live in the UK?
Updated 26 January 2017
No, you can’t usually make any payments to your ISA if you no longer live in the UK.
We can’t accept any new money, like regular or lump sum payments, transfers or increases to existing regular payments, unless you're a UK resident.
We can’t accept any ongoing regular payments to your ISA unless you're:
- a resident in the UK (HRMC defines 'a resident in the UK' as if either you spent 183 or more days in the UK in the tax year (April 6 - April 5) or your only home was in the UK - you must have owned, rented or lived in it for at least 91 days in total - and you spent at least 30 days there in the tax year performing duties as a Crown employee serving overseas and paid out of public revenue of the UK (for example, a member of the armed forces, or a diplomat))
- married to or in a civil partnership with someone performing duties as a Crown employee serving overseas and paid out of public revenue of the UK
