Important information - The information on this page is to help you make your own decisions and is not personal advice. Inflation reduces the future spending power of money. Tax rules for ISAs can change and their benefits depend on your personal circumstances.

Cash ISA

You won’t find a Cash ISA like this anywhere else.

Through one online account, you can pick and choose Cash ISA rates from our range of banking partners.

Save tax-free in a range of products:

  • Fixed rate (fixed rate of interest over a fixed term).
  • Easy access (variable rate with flexibility to access your money).
  • Limited access (variable rate and limited access to your money).

Choose as many products as you like. Switch between banks as your needs change (with easy or limited access products), or when your fixed rate matures.

That means your savings can suit your needs, without the hassle of holding multiple accounts.

Latest Cash ISA rates

Products can be added or withdrawn at any time. After setting up your account all you need to do is choose the savings rate you want to open your cash ISA.

If you decide to put any of your cash ISA in a fixed term product, you could be charged if you close or transfer your cash ISA before 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/profit in the Cash ISA is paid free of UK income tax.

Once you have opened a fixed term product the rate won't change, but rates on easy and limited access products can vary. Tax rules can change and their benefits depend on your circumstances.

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.

Cash ISA Transfers

You can transfer money between your HL Cash ISA and HL Stocks and Shares ISA via your account online. Currently, you cannot transfer ISAs from another provider directly to the HL Cash ISA. But you can transfer to the HL Stocks and Shares ISA first, and then transfer into the HL Cash ISA.
