Paying into an ISA

You can pay into most ISAs in your branch or online up to your annual allowance. This guide shows how you do that, as well as what to do if your ISA has different rules around paying in.

Remember, If you don’t use any of your ISA allowance for an entire tax year, the next time you try to pay into your Nationwide ISA, you’ll need to complete an ISA renewal form. If you don’t, the payment will not go through.

The quickest way to complete the form is by logging into the Internet Bank. If you haven’t already, you can register for the Internet Bank now.


It's possible to transfer your ISA from another manager, or between ISAs you have with us.
Find out more in our Managing your ISA page.

Accounts with different paying in rules

If you have one of the following ISAs, there are different rules around how to pay in, and paying in limits.

We suggest you check the terms and conditions for a detailed breakdown of managing your account.

Paying in cheques or cash at your branch


You can pay cash into any account in your name.


You can pay in with your passbook (if you have one) at your nearest branch.

Paying into a savings account

Paying-in instructions

Paying into a bond

Fixed Rate Bonds and Fixed Rate e-Bonds

You can't pay into a Fixed Rate Bond or Fixed Rate e-Bond after you've opened it.

Fixed Rate Online Bonds and Member Online Bonds

When you open a Fixed Rate Online Bond or a Member Online Bond, you'll have a 14 day funding window to pay into your new account. You can pay into these bonds by bank transfer, or by transferring from a Nationwide account that allows you to take money out. You can pay in as many times as you like during the funding window.

Please consider payment and transfer timescales and allow enough time before the end of the 14 day funding window for your money to be added to your account.

If you have more money you'd like to put into a bond, you could consider opening another bond or savings account.
