More about the Halifax Stocks and Shares ISA
Each year the government allows you to invest in a tax-efficient product called a stocks and shares ISA. Any potential profit from cash invested into a stocks & shares ISA is completely free from Capital Gains Tax! Your ISA allowance for the 2014/15 tax year is £15,000.
What is a Stocks and Shares ISA?
A Stocks and Shares ISA is a tax-efficient way to invest money as all potential profit is exempt from Capital Gains Tax. You can choose to invest your money in a wide range of ISA qualifying stocks and shares from both the UK (including AIM stocks) and on six international markets. You can also invest in funds, bonds, gilts and more - our ISA is self-select so you decide exactly what you want to invest in.
The ISA limit for the current tax year is £15,000. You can choose to invest your full allowance into either a stocks and shares ISA or a cash ISA, or alternatively you can split your allowance between a cash ISA and a stocks and shares ISA. For example, if you invest £10,000 into your stocks and shares ISA, you must save no more than £5,000 in a cash ISA.
