Additional Information

  • For accounts opened over the phone or by post we will send you a Welcome Pack in the post with details of your account number and opening balance. Each month there is a transaction on your account (other than an interest payment), we will send you a paper statement at least once. We will also send a statement annually in December and on closure of the account.
  • Virgin Money Store accounts will receive a passbook. You must remember to present your passbook and suitable personal identification each time you make a withdrawal in a Store. Your passbook will be updated to show details of your transactions and the interest added to your account. We will also send you a letter each month there are any payments on your account (other than an interest payment) if regulations and guidance from our regulator require us to do so and unless otherwise agreed with you.
  • Please also remember the tax advantages depend on your individual circumstances and the tax treatment of ISAs may change in the future.
  • In addition to paying in up to £20,000 in the 2019 - 2020 tax year, you can also transfer previous tax years' Cash ISA and Stocks and Shares ISA subscriptions. You can only subscribe to one Cash ISA in each tax year.
  • By opening a Cash ISA you limit the amount of tax-free savings you can make in a Stocks and Shares ISA, an Innovative Finance ISA and a Lifetime ISA.
  • As this is a flexible ISA, from 6 April 2016 you can now withdraw money from your account and put it back in without it counting towards your annual ISA allowance. This money must be paid into the account in the same tax year as the withdrawal or you will lose the ability to replace it.

If you wish to take advantage of this 14-day rule, you must send your cancellation in writing to Savings Operations, Virgin Money, Jubilee House, NE3 4PL, when you close your account we will ensure that our reports to HM Revenue & Customs reflect the correct position.
