Please be aware we are not currently able to offer any ISAs from Britannia Building Society.

Who are Britannia Building Society?

The Britannia Building Society was originally founded as the Leek & Moorlands Building Society in 1856, and they adapted the Britannia name in 1975 following a series of mergers.

In 2009, Britannia merged with The Co-operative Banking Group, and today the Britannia brand has been largely dissolved with the exception of some branches and financial products.

It is no longer possible to take out a new ISA account directly with Britannia Building Society. However, the Coop offer a range of ISA accounts including a ‘Britannia fixed-rate ISA’.

What is an ISA?

ISAs are a type of tax-efficient savings account available to investors in the UK.

You are allowed to invest up to your annual ISA allowance each year into ISAs, which for the current tax year is £20,000.

There are two types of taxes that ISAs protect your investments from:

Income tax

Income tax is typically paid on the interest you receive on your cash savings, and dividends you receive from stock investments.

Capital Gains Tax

Capital gains tax is normally paid on the growth of your investments. If you’ve made a profit on an investment when you come to sell it, you could be required to pay tax on the capital gain.

All investments within an ISA account a completely free from both of these taxes, so you have the peace of mind that you don’t need to declare or pay any tax on your investment profits.

What are the different types of ISA accounts?

ISA accounts come in two main forms: Stocks and Shares ISAs and Cash ISAs.

Cash ISAs are savings products where you earn interest on the cash in your account.

Stocks and Shares ISAs are investment accounts that allow you to purchase a wide range of investments on the stock market. These investments can go down as well as up in value.

Here are some key features for each ISA:

Cash ISAs:

  1. Cash ISAs offer a fixed or variable interest rate on your savings.
  2. Your investment stays as cash so it cannot decrease in value.
  3. You can invest in a fixed-term ISA that provides higher rates, or an instant-access ISA that provides lower rates but better flexibility to withdraw.

Stocks and Shares ISAs:

  1. There is a wide range of investment types available to hold in a Stocks and Shares ISA including funds, shares, investment trusts, ETFs and ready-made portfolios.
  2. Stocks can increase in value and also pay you dividends.
  3. They come at a higher risk than cash savings as they can fall as well as rise in value.
  4. You can usually withdraw from a Stocks and Shares ISA at any time.

Are ISA accounts free of charge?

Whether or not you will be charged for your ISA account depends on the type of ISA you open and how you use it.

Cash ISA charges:

  • You don’t usually pay initial or ongoing charges for a Cash ISA, but you could pay a fee if you withdraw from or close your account before the end of a fixed term.

Stocks and Shares ISA charges:

  • You pay an Annual Management Charge for investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA.
  • This fee is taken either as a fixed fee or a percentage of the value of your ISA.
  • You could also pay dealing fees when you buy and sell stocks and shares.
  • Some ISA providers also charge you for closing your account or transferring out.

When you’re comparing Stocks and Shares ISA charges remember to think about:

  1. The portfolio you’ll invest in (you may be charged differently to hold different assets).
  2. How often you’ll be buying and selling shares.
  3. How much you value customer service, ISA usability and other account features as you may pay more for these services.

How do I open an ISA account?

You can open most ISA accounts online, and some ISA providers also allow you to create an account over the phone, via postal application or in branch if you need to.

To open an ISA, you’ll need:

  1. Your basic personal information including your NI number.
  2. To add money to your account (via debit card, cheque, direct debit or an ISA transfer).

Can I transfer one ISA into another?

Once you’ve decided on your new ISA account, you can transfer your existing ISAs to it as well as topping up with new money if you wish.

If done correctly, ISA transfers do not count towards your ISA allowance, so you can transfer multiple ISAs in the same tax year and still contribute up to £20,000 of new money.

Note: if you withdraw your existing ISA to your bank account and then add it to your new ISA then you’ll lose that portion of your allowance, so make sure you use the below method to transfer.

ISA Transfer Steps:

  1. Contact your existing ISA provider(s) to ask if you’ll be charged for transferring away.
  2. Complete and return an ISA transfer form with your new provider.
  3. Your new provider will complete your ISA transfer for you and notify you when complete.
