A stocks and shares ISA, sometimes called an investment ISA is a tax-efficient investment account. This means any money you earn from your investments will be free from UK taxes.

Within a stocks and shares ISA you won’t pay:

  • Income tax on UK dividends or interest

  • Capital gains tax if you sell your investments for a profit

With a stocks and shares ISA you can invest in a range of shares, exchange-traded funds, investment trusts and more - read more about our stocks and shares ISA account here!

When you invest, your capital is at risk. The value of your portfolio can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you invest. ISA eligibility and tax rules apply.
