The HL Cash ISA
You'll hold your Cash ISA with HL, but through one online account choose your savings products from Coventry Building Society.
In a single tax year, you can spread your ISA allowance across easy access, limited access and fixed term products (when available).
What is a Cash ISA?
It’s a tax-efficient way to save. All interest earned within a Cash ISA is free from UK income tax. If you have a standard savings account, you may have to pay tax on the interest you earn.
Latest Cash ISA rates
After setting up your HL Cash ISA account, you need to make a deposit into a savings product to officially open the Cash ISA. Products can be added or withdrawn at any time.
Withdrawals from easy and limited access usually take one working day. You can't usually withdraw your money from a fixed rate product until the term ends.
AER *(Annual Equivalent Rate) shows what the interest rate would be if it was paid and compounded once each year. It helps you compare the rates on different savings products.
Tax-free: Interest in the Cash ISA is paid free of UK income tax. Tax rules can change.
Easy and limited access products pay a variable rate.
Fixed term products pay a fixed rate.
How much can I save in a Cash ISA?
There’s a limited amount of money you can put into ISAs each tax year (6 April – 5 April). This year (2023/2024) the ISA allowance is £20,000.
You can split your allowance across Stocks and Shares, Cash, Lifetime, and Innovative Finance ISAs as long as you don’t exceed the total allowance across them all each tax year. However you can’t subscribe to more than one of each type of ISA account each tax year.
Tax rules for ISAs can change and their benefits depend on your circumstances.
How can a Cash ISA help you save tax?
All interest you earn within a Cash ISA is free from UK income tax.
If you have standard savings accounts, you may have to pay tax on the interest you earn. This will depend on your Personal Savings Allowance, which is the amount of interest you can typically earn before you start paying tax on it, and your other income.
Cash ISA charges
We don’t charge you directly to have a Cash ISA, instead we charge our banking partners. This means the same or similar products offered directly by the banks and building societies may have different interest rates to those available through the HL Cash ISA.
