ISA

This account is closed to new applications. However, existing members who already hold a Cash ISA will continue to earn interest.

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.

ISA’s, 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.

 Terms and Conditions

  • As part of membership with No1 CopperPot, you are required to save at least £5 per month into your Member Account.
  • If you close your ISA, interest will be paid at the end of the quarter into your Member Account. The amount of interest will be calculated up to the day of closure.
  • If you choose to leave the Credit Union no interest will be paid on your account.
  • This account does not qualify for a dividend payment.
  • A negative interest rate occurs when a central bank, in our case the Bank of England, reduces the nominal interest rate below zero percent in an effort to boost economic activity. This in turn results in a charge for banks to store reserves at the central bank rather than receiving positive interest income. If this was to occur the Reserve Account and ISA could go to negative interest rates.
  • This account includes Life Protection, up to age 65. Terms and conditions apply
