ISAs or Individual savings accounts are an ideal way for most people to invest as they offer generous tax benefits and allow you to access your money when you want. When you invest in an ISA you pay no further tax on any income earned or any gains when you sell your investments.
You get an ISA allowance each year which runs out on the 5th of April - for the 2018/19 tax year your allowance is £20,000. You can invest this as one lump sum or smaller amounts but must remember that once the tax year is over if you have not used all your allowance you will lose it.
Stocks and shares ISAs also offer great flexibility; you can access your money when you need it. When you withdraw money from your ISA you don’t pay any tax which means you get to keep all of the income and investment growth you’ve made.
The maximum contribution into your 2018-19 ISA is £20,000, the end of the tax year is the 5th April, which is the deadline to use your allowance.
ISA funds can be passed onto you spouse free from IHT.
An ISA account is free from both capital gains tax (CGT) and income tax. Dividends are tax-free under the new dividends allowance, you don't pay any income tax on interest from corporate bonds in an ISA.
Bed and ISA transactions allow you to sell existing investments that you are holding outside of your ISA and then buy the same investments back within your ISA, or choose other investments, or simply hold the cash within your ISA.
A Stocks and shares ISA is effectively a ’tax wrapper’ that can be put around a wide range of different investment products. It is essentially how different investments held within the ISA are treated for tax purposes. For example, any investment growth or interest earned within the ISA is free of tax.
Lots of different types of investment can be held in an ISA, including:
You can transfer any cash ISAs or investment ISAs (stocks & shares ISAs) you have with other providers to Pello Capital.
Transferring ISAs from previous tax years doesn’t impact your current ISA allowance at all, so you can still put up to £20,000 into an ISA this tax year. However, if you want to transfer an ISA you’ve paid into this tax year, you have to transfer the whole amount, and it will count towards this year’s ISA allowance.TRANSFER AN ISA
