Total remaining Stocks & Shares ISA allowance

The annual ISA allowance is per individual. This means a husband and wife, for example, can put up to £23,760 between them into ISAs this tax year. However, each individual can only contribute to one Stocks & Shares ISA and one Cash ISA in each tax year.

Used every tax year the ISA allowance lets you build a significant portfolio of assets sheltered from tax. We even have some clients who have used their ISA allowance (and before them PEPs) every year who now have tax-efficient portfolios worth in excess of £1 million.
