What is an ISA?
An Individual Savings Account (ISA) is a scheme that allows individuals to hold cash, shares, and unit trusts free of tax on dividends, interest, and capital gains.
There are two main types of ISA:
Cash ISA’s where all interest earned on money held in a cash Isa is tax-free.
Stocks and Shares ISA’s where almost all capital gains and income are protected from tax.
You get a fresh ISA allowance each tax year (in the 2015/16 tax year the ISA allowance was £15,240, for example).
If you still have all or part of your allowance left, we can help you to make the most of your tax-free savings.
