Tax Free Savings
This account is closed to new applications. As we are no longer allowing applications for any new ISA’s or allowing contributions into ISA’s currently held, if you withdraw any money from your ISA you will not be able to put any money back into it.
ISAs, or Individual Savings Accounts, were set up by the government to encourage people to save. A Cash ISA entitles you to earn a return on your savings completely tax free, over the period of a tax year which runs from April 6th of one year to April 5th of the following year. The Cash ISA has a projected interest rate that is paid quarterly.
