High Interest ISA

Technically, since there is no tax deductible on the interest gained in Individual Savings Accounts, each ISA can be considered a high interest ISA. However, there are certain ISAs that have much higher interests than others. 

These ISAs allows for a much greater return on investment regardless of the investment type, that is cash, stocks or shares. A high interest ISA is one that has a high interest rate throughout the entire term and mostly, these rates are fixed, as is the term of investment.

There are different types of high interest isa account:

Fixed rate ISA

In this account, the interest rate is pre-determined and fixed. Therefore the deposit made on this account gains a steady interest as per the set rate of interest. 

The set term for investment is annually. In the fixed rate ISA, which is arguably the highest interest ISA, the deposit or investment is made once. At the beginning of the term, the individual makes a single deposit or investment and cannot add more to the account. This ISA this therefore best for an individual with a fairly large sum of money and wishing to invest it all at once.

After the deposit is made depending on provider criteria the individual usually cannot make any withdrawals from the account and has to wait until the end of the set term, which will depend on how long the term is for. Fixed rate ISA terms can vary typically from 1 year to 5 years. The interest gained is therefore greatly dependent on the initial deposit. 

An individual can deposit as high an amount as possible as long as it does not exceed the allowance limit, that is £20,000 for the 2019/2020 tax year.

Easy Access or Instant Access ISAs

These types of isa account can be instant access, easy access or notice accounts where it is possible to make regular deposits. An individual also has more flexibility with these accounts than with a fixed rate ISA. 

With these isa accounts the interest available may vary and may not provide the higher interest you can achieve through a fixed rate isa.
