the value of tax savings depends on individual circumstances and tax rules can change over time. Investments can go down in value as well as up, so a child could get back less than invested. If you are unsure if an investment is right for you or your child, please seek advice.
What is a Junior ISA (JISA)?
Junior ISAs are tax-efficient investment and savings accounts for children. A Junior ISA must be opened by a parent or legal guardian but once opened anyone can contribute up to the Junior ISA allowance. It can be used for a number of different purposes such as saving towards a child's university fees or a deposit on their first home.
Invest up to £4,080 per child per tax year - free from UK income tax and capital gains tax.
Anybody can contribute - friends and family can add money to the Junior ISA without affecting their own allowances.
Money in a Junior Stocks & Shares ISA is ring-fenced until the child's 18th birthday, so there's plenty of time to maximise growth if you start early.
Junior ISAs can be a great way to encourage good saving habits from a young age.
