Cash ISAs

Why should you consider a cash ISA (Individual Savings Account)?

  • There's no tax to pay on the interest you earn
  • That means savings are free from UK Income Tax
  • An ISA doesn't count towards your Personal Savings Allowance
  • You can save between £1 and £20,000 this tax year
  • Easy to apply and manage, either in-branch, online or by post
  • All our ISAs allow transfers in of funds from previous tax years

Interested? Then take a look at our range of tax-free ISAs to see which one works best for you. You can find even more information in ISAs explained.



In the event that the balance falls below the minimum operating balance as stated within the relevant product details below, the rate of interest which shall apply is currently 0.05% Tax-Free§ p.a/AER (variable). These accounts are not flexible cash ISAs meaning any amount withdrawn cannot be replaced and will count towards your yearly ISA limit.
