About ISAs

There are two distinct types of ISA: Cash and Stocks & Shares, which differ considerably from each other. ISA rules mean that each tax year you are allowed to open a maximum of one of each type of ISA, so you can open either or both types of account each year. If you do decide to open both a Cash ISA and a Stocks and Share ISA then as your maximum ISA allowance stays the same you have to split it between the two accounts, this can be done at a ratio of your choice however e.g. 70% in a Cash Isa and the remaining 30% in a Stocks and Shares ISA.

  1. Cash ISAs – Are a kind of savings account, so interest accumulates on the money deposited in the account, unlike a traditional savings account however up to your maximum allowance interest is paid tax-free. There are different kinds of Cash ISAs available from various providers such as Fixed Rate and Instant Access plans.
  1. Stocks & Shares ISAs – Are a type of investment account that provides a ‘tax efficient wrapper’ to invest in other products like; gilts, bonds and shares. You still have to pay tax on dividends but you do not have to pay capital gains tax or income tax on profits made from share price increases within the account up to your maximum allowance.

Transferring an ISA

It is possible to transfer an ISA to another provider, which means it can be wise to occasionally shop around to see if a best buy could offer you a better deal. However when doing so consider any interest penalty you might incur from your current provider, as doing so could mean you could be worse of overall than if you stayed with your current arrangement.
