Stocks and Shares ISA
Giving you more ways to grow your money
A Stocks and Shares ISA can be a great way to make the most of your ISA allowance. You can invest in the stock market tax-free, and get potentially higher returns than a cash ISA can offer. However, please be aware that you’ll be exposing yourself to higher risk too, and you could end up with less than your original investment.
Who can pay into an ISA?
You can only make a subscription to an ISA if you are a UK resident as defined by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), a Crown employee serving overseas, or married to or in a Civil Partnership with a Crown employee.
You can only make subscriptions to a Junior ISA if your child is a UK resident as defined by HMRC.
Any tax benefits you receive depend on your tax position as well as current tax law – both of which may change in the future.
Remember, the value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up, meaning you may get back less than you invest.
