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.

Interest Rate

The interest is paid tax free, which means that you do not have to declare it on your tax return.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a monthly £50 deposit?If the first deposit took place at the beginning of the Credit Union’s financial year, after 12 months a member would have a savings balance of £600, the interest paid would be £6.91, making a total of £606.91.

Additional informationA 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. There are annual limits of how much you can save into an ISA. You can find more information on ISA limits here: https://www.gov.uk/individual-savings-accounts/how-isas-work

 ISA Terms and Conditions

  • As part of membership with No1 CopperPot, you are required to save at least £5 per month into your Member Account.
  • Interest payments will be paid monthly.
  • 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.
