ISAs

Independent financial advice

Individual Savings Accounts are saving plans that are exempt from tax on their returns.

Types

Currently, the available types of ISA are:


  • Cash
  • Stocks and shares
  • Innovative finance
  • Lifetime (LISA)

Benefits

The big benefit of ISAs is that no tax is payable, either on interest from cash or on investment returns.

Everyone has a yearly allowance for how much they can pay in. This is currently £20,000 a year, and this can be invested into a single ISA, or split across different types depending on how you wish to save. The only exception to this allowance is the LISA, which has a £4,000 annual limit.

Examples

A cash ISA can include:

  • Bank and building society accounts
  • Some National Savings & Investments products

A stocks and shares ISA can include:

  • Shares in companies
  • Unit trusts and investment funds
  • Corporate bonds
  • Government bonds

A LISA may include either:

  • Cash
  • Stocks and shares

Innovative finance ISAs include:

  • Peer to peer loans
  • Crowdfunding debentures
