Individual Savings accounts have proved to be one of the most tax-efficient and favoured ways to save and invest since they were introduced in 1999. In 2014, the Chancellor announced a welcome revelation by making broad changes to the existing ISA regulations by allowing larger tax breaks and better flexibility.
Don't let HMRC take more than necessary out of your money
The ISA allowance for the current 2018/19 tax year is £20,000 and given the current outlook for economic growth and interest rates it is important that individuals take action to make the most of the tax-efficient saving and investment opportunities given to them by the end of the current tax year. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to maximise your tax-efficient investment opportunities.
Do you have funds held in or are considering depositing funds into a Cash ISA?
According to the HMRC in September 2017, there were over £270 billion held in Cash ISAs. Also in January 2018, Moneyfacts reported that the average Cash ISA account was paying interest of only 0.82% in 2017. Many savers are in danger of squandering the possible rewards of their ISA allowance due to saving into low-interest cash accounts that don’t take advantage of the long-term tax breaks available.
