ISAs - Individual Savings Accounts
Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) replaced both PEPs and Tessas in 1999. ISAs have since proved to be a popular and well-established way to save and invest and offer tax-efficiency, in particular for the higher-rate tax payer.
Investments in an ISA are sheltered from capital gains tax (CGT) and you do not have to declare an ISA on your tax return.
Stocks and shares ISAs combine tax efficiency with a straightforward route into the stockmarket with its opportunity for long term reward.
An ISA is a tax-efficient wrapper placed around investment(s). There are two different types of ISA - stocks and shares ISAs and cash ISAs.
