ISAs

An ISA is a great way to save tax-efficiently and there are a range of ISAs to choose from.

Maybe you need access to your money or you might be happy to lock your money away to enjoy the certainty of a fixed rate of interest for a set term. If you have a long-term goal in mind you could consider a Stocks and Shares ISA. Look at our ISA options below to find out more.

Stocks & Shares ISAs aren’t like bank and building society savings accounts as your capital is at risk and you may get back less than you invested.

A good place to start your ISA research

If you’ve got a question about ISAs, we’ve probably got an answer for you. Discover the need-to-know facts, find out about ISA allowances, rules and transfers, and learn how Stocks & Shares ISAs could factor into your longer-term plans.

An ISA, or Individual Savings Account, offers a tax-efficient way of saving because you don’t pay any income tax on the interest you earn.

Discover the ISA basics, including the different types of ISAs and which might be right for you on our page, what is an ISA?

The ISA allowance for the 2021/22 tax year is £20,000. To find out more about how you can use your allowance, visit our ISA allowance page.

You can have more than one ISA, but there are some rules you need to know. Read about the rules and the potential benefits of having more than one type of ISA.

If your account allows it, you can transfer from another ISA provider to Skipton, from Skipton to another provider or transfer between Skipton ISAs. Want to know how? Visit our ISA transfer page.

If you’re saving for something big that’s more than five years away, a savings account might not give you the best returns, so you might want to consider a Stocks & Shares ISA instead.

Even if your spouse or civil partner left the money in their ISA to someone else, you can still inherit an ISA allowance based on how much they had saved in ISAs. This additional allowance, known as an Additional Permitted Subscription, means you can increase the amount you can save tax-free.

You can find out more about inheriting ISA allowances or funds from an ISA on our Additional Permitted Subscriptions page, or on our page bereavement page, which explains what happens to savings accounts when someone has passed away.

If you're not sure about which ISA is right for you and need some help, you can speak to us face-to-face from the comfort of your own home, with our video appointment service Skipton Link.
