This tax year you can invest up to £15,240 in ISAs (the tax year runs from 6 April 2015 to 5 April 2016).
You can invest the full amount (up to £15,240) into either a Stocks & Shares ISA or a Cash ISA, or alternatively split your investment between a Stocks & Shares ISA and a Cash ISA, providing you stay within the overall £15,240 limit.
The annual ISA allowance is per individual. This means a husband and wife, for example, can put up to £30,480 between them into ISAs this tax year.
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 ISAs and PEPs) every year who now have tax-efficient portfolios worth in excess of £500,000.

Open your ISA today from as little as £25 a month or with a lump sum of £100 or more. If you're unsure where to invest in your Stocks & Shares ISA, you can open it today, hold your money as cash in your Stocks & Shares ISA and then choose your investments later.
Please remember, the value of tax savings will depend on your circumstances and tax rules can change over time. Investments can go down in value as well as up, so you might get back less than you invest.
