Remember

Each tax year, everyone aged 16 and over in the UK gets an annual tax-free ISA allowance, which is £20,000 in the current tax year. The tax year runs from 6 April to 5 April the following year.

With an ISA you can save money as cash (in a Cash ISA), invest in the stock market (in a Stocks & Shares ISA), lend your money to other individuals or companies as a loan (in an Innovative Finance ISA), save towards your first home and/or retirement (in a Lifetime ISA) or a combination of all four. This is based on HM Revenue and Customs UK taxation law and practice which may change.

An ISA, or Individual Savings Account, allows you to invest up to the maximum ISA allowance each tax year without you having to pay a penny of tax on any interest or gains you make. You can transfer your money between the different types of ISAs, however please remember you can only subscribe to one of each type of ISA, Cash ISA, Stocks and Shares ISA, Innovative Finance ISA and Lifetime ISA (maximum £4,000) in each tax year, up to the combined annual subscription limit.

Here at Virgin Money, we have a range of Cash ISAs and Stocks and Shares ISAs for you to choose from. However we don’t currently offer an Innovative Finance ISA or Lifetime ISA.

If you have any questions about your Cash ISA, please use our ask a question facility or contact us on 0345 600 7301.
