Our ISA Options

An ISA is a great way to save tax-efficiently. You can save up to £20,000 in the current tax year 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.

ISA allowance

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.

How many ISAs can you have?

Not all ISAs allow transfers in/out – you can find out if your ISA allows them in your ISA product terms and conditions.

You can find all the information you need to transfer your ISA on our Transferring your ISA page.

Transferring your ISA

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

You can find more information on our Stocks and Shares ISA page.

Stocks & Shares ISA

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 bereavement page, which explains what happens to savings accounts when someone has passed away.
