What is an ISA?

An ISA (individual savings account) is a retail investment available to UK residents that is exempt from income tax and capital gains tax on its returns.

There are restrictions on how much you can invest in an ISA each year: the current yearly maximum you can invest in a stocks and shares ISA is £15,240.


What is a stocks and shares (S&S) ISA?

A stocks and shares ISA is a type of ISA where money is invested in 'qualifying investments'. Examples include cash, unit trusts, stock market company shares and government bonds.

You may invest up to your full ISA limit in a stocks and shares ISA.

How much can I invest in an S&S ISA?

The current yearly maximum you can invest in a stocks and shares ISA is £15,240.

Do you offer a flexible ISA?

Flexible ISAs are a new addition to ISAs that allow you to withdraw some of the money invested in your ISA and reinvest it at a later date, without reducing your total allowance. So if you’ve got a flexible ISA with £10,000 of funds invested in it, and you withdraw some of those funds, your remaining ISA allowance will increase to reflect the funds that you can now pay back in.
Flexible ISAs launched on April 6 and are now available through the IG platform.
