About our ISAs

Bank of Scotland offer two types of ISA for you to choose from:

  • Cash ISAs – where there is no tax to pay on the interest you earn (tax-free).
  • Stocks and shares ISAs – where growth in your investment is free from both income tax and capital gains tax (tax-efficient).

The annual ISA allowance for the 2017/18 tax year is £20,000. You can choose to save or invest your allowance in a cash ISA, a stocks & shares ISA, an innovative finance ISA, a lifetime ISA (depending on your age and circumstance and up to the lifetime ISA limit) or a combination of all four, providing you don’t exceed the limit.

The Junior ISA allowance for this tax year is £4,128 and covers contributions to Junior Cash ISAs and Junior Investment ISAs.
