Help to Buy: ISA in three minutes

If you're a first time buyer in the UK saving for your first home, a Help to Buy: ISA could be just what you need.

As well as earning tax-free interest as you save, the government will also give you a £50 tax-free bonus* for every £200 you put away – up to a maximum of £3,000 (if you save £12,000). And when you buy your first home, the government pays the bonus you’ve earned to your solicitor, who’ll use it to complete your house purchase.

*Subject to customer eligibility and acceptance of the Scheme Rules.
