New tax year- new ISA allowance – Info for Investments
If you hold ISA’s or may consider investing the following may be of interest.
Many investors like to open their ISA at the start of each tax year. This is a good idea – investments are sheltered from tax straight away. It also gives investments more time to grow, and over the long term this can have a significant effect on returns.
This tax year the ISA allowance has risen to £15,240, so you can shelter more capital than ever from the tax man. You can invest a lump sum from as little as £100, or if you don’t have a lump sum to invest you can start your ISA early with a regular savings plan from £25 per month.
