Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

#142263

Postby CryptoPlankton » May 30th, 2018, 10:50 am

Both Barclays SmartInvestor and Interactive Investor are currently developing the facility to set up regular payments from S&S ISA accounts to nominated bank accounts. This would be handy as it will provide a simple method for drawing a steady income from dividends (leaving sufficient cash in reserve to allow for their "lumpy" distribution through the year).

Unfortunately, neither can say how long before it will be available. I was wondering if anyone uses, or is aware of, such a feature with another broker?

TIA

Youinvest (A J Bell) already has the ability to make regular withdrawals from an ISA.

Iweb lets you have all the dividends paid into your bank account, but not other sums.

As already noted, IWeb (and Halifax) lets you have all the dividends paid away to your bank account. You have the choice of either having them paid away to you as they arrive in your ISA, arriving in your bank account ~3 days later, or paid away 6 monthly, in which case they send the collected dividend totals to your bank account at the end of April and October.

Alliance Trust Savings also has a pay away dividends system, and in their case you can choose the individual holdings you want to have the dividends from paid away to you. The payout is a monthly one with them sending you, around the 12th of each month, all of the eligible dividends since the last month.

Neither is a "regular payment", per se, and so doesn't provide a "steady income" but of course you can always get them sent to a buffer account which you then draw the steady income from.

As far as I knew you can do monthly fixed payments from an II ISA, just choose withdraw/transfer cash from the cash transfers menu and specify it to be monthly.

Hi Puffster

I seem to be able to go through that process for my trading account, but not for my ISA - the frequency button will then only allow the "One time" option. When I asked on the phone, they said they were working on it, but that at the moment it is only possible to make one time payments. Have you actually managed to set this up yourself? Similarly, the option appears to be there on the SmartInvestor site - until you actually try to utilise it!

You are right, I had only ever done it on my II dealing account and when I switch the account choice to ISA the monthly option disappears. Sigh, someone actually spent time coding to remove that choice...

I now think that you can do it with II. Set up a regular internal transfer (monthly in this case) from the ISA to the dealing account for the amount you ultimately want in your bank account. Then set up a regular payment (monthly) from the dealing account to your bank account for the same amount and make it a few days later to allow time for the transferred money to get between accounts.

I've never tried this but I think it should work...

Good thinking puffster, I have just tried it and it does indeed seem to have worked! Many thanks for taking the trouble to post.

All the best, CP

Pilling & co will roll up the dividends and pay them out of the ISA quarterly, at no extra charge.

That said, their curstardy fee and commisions on dealing could not be described as cheap.

I set up my ATS ISA to pay all dividends into the associated deposit account. I then instructed them to transfer a fixed sum each month from the deposit account into my current account. I had to do this by letter. Works well for me.

Share Centre will pay dividends direct to bank as and when they arise if instructed to do so by telephone (this option isn't available on the form).

Hi CryptoPlankton,

I just tried setting this up and it does not work for me (regular ISA to dealing account transfer), bringing up an error message. Having rung II they tried doing it for me while on the phone. This also failed and they said they would refer it to another department to get them to do it. I have now received a Secure Message from the other department saying that this is not possible...

Have you succeeded in getting this to work and execute?

Regards, Puffster

Hello again, Puffster

That is odd. Although I cancelled the internal transfer after setting it up previously (as I'm not quite ready to implement it yet), everything appeared to be in order and ready to go should I have left it. That is, when I accessed "manage payments " from the "cash and transfers" drop down menu, both the bank transfer and internal transfer details appeared under the relevant tabs. I have just been having another play with it and I have twice successfully set up the internal transfer from ISA to trading account. However, I have found that if I don't complete every field correctly first time, odd things like the recurring option vanishing or "we are unable to complete your request at this time" seem to happen. This also occurred when I tried to avoid putting an end date (which I didn't want as I would really like it to be indefinite, but I suppose it doesn't hurt to have a review date built in for some time in the future). I haven't seen an actual "error" message though.

Anyway, just in case it helps in any way, after selecting "internal transfer" I completed Step 1 of the "create payment" successfully as follows:

Currency: Default (GBP Sterling)
From: selected ISA account
To Account: selected trading account
Amount: entered round number (in 100's)
Frequency: Recurring (if this wasn't available, cancelled whole procedure and started again!)
Transfer every: month
Start date: entered a few weeks ahead
End date: entered a few months ahead
Dealing password: xxx

AND, very importantly, I checked the box next to "I understand the conditions that apply to this withdrawal request"

Good luck if you try again!

CP you are a star - the issue for me was the end date needs to be set or it always fails with an inappropriate error message!! So I now have a monthly ISA to dealing transfer set up. Many thanks.

I have also secure messaged II to let them know it is possible. I find it surprising that they don't know how to use their own system but anyway.
