STOCKS AND SHARES ISA.

In each tax year you can save or invest up to £20,000 in an ISA. With a Stocks and Shares ISA, you have complete flexibility as you can choose to invest your money in a wide range of different investments and any money you make in profit or dividends is completely free from UK tax.

Plus, we also make it simple for you to invest in a way that suits you. You can invest a lump sum, or if you don’t want to invest a large amount, you can invest on a monthly basis.

Please remember that the value of all investments can fall as well as rise, and you may get back less than you invest. If you’re not sure about investing, seek financial advice. Tax treatment depends on personal circumstances and may be subject to change.

Why invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA?

The tax advantages are the key reason why most people invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA. If you’re investing over a longer period of time you could be liable for a lot in Capital Gains Tax when you decide to sell your investments. Investing in a Stocks and Shares ISA means that you pay no UK tax on any potential profit or income – after that, basic rate tax payers will pay 10% capital gains tax and higher/additional rate tax payers will pay 20%.

Our Stocks and Shares ISA is self-select so you decide exactly what you want to invest in. This means you can choose from a wide range of stocks and shares (from the UK and international markets), managed funds, bonds, gilts and more. Read more about our investment options.
