About Stocks and Shares ISAs

A Stocks and Shares ISA is an investment tool that provides a tax-efficient wrapper, up to the maximum ISA allowance, for an individual’s capital. The money held within an investment ISA can then be put into a range of qualifying investments which can include; bonds, gilts and funds as well as stocks and shares. Remember that when investing that the value of your investments can go down as a well as up and you could get back less or none of what you originally invested.

With a stocks and shares ISA there is no capital gains tax to pay on gains on investments held within the ISA, dividends incur a 10% income tax at source but there is no further income tax to be paid.

Other ISA types

In addition to investment ISAs there are other types such as innovative finance and cash ISAs. As these products are entirely different ISAs from each other you are allowed to open them in addition to an investment ISA within the same tax year so long as you do not exceed your overall ISA allowance.

Cash ISA – Work much like a normal savings account in that money deposited into the account accrues interest. The main difference is that all of the money held within the account, up to the maximum allowance, is paid tax-free. There are different types of cash ISA available such as instant access and fixed rate, so savers can choose a product that fits how they want to save.

Innovative Finance ISA – Offer a way for individuals to invest using Peer to Peer in a tax-efficient manner.

How much can I pay into an ISA?

21st March 2019

Each tax year, there's a limit set by the government to the amount you can save and invest in ISAs: your “annual ISA allowance”. The allowances are intended to reward savers and encourage us to invest more to support our future retirements, without creating a tax haven that can be taken advantage of by very wealthy individuals who just want to avoid paying tax.
