Stocks and shares ISA Allowance

Cash ISA Allowance 2024/2025

Important information - The information on this page is not personal advice - please ask us for financial advice if you’re not sure what’s right for you. Tax rules for ISAs can change and their benefits depend on your circumstances.

The Cash ISA allowance this tax year is £20,000

The maximum amount you can put into a Cash ISA is £20,000. Or you can spread £20,000 across any combination of Cash ISAs, Stocks and Shares ISAs, and Innovative Finance ISAs, as long as you stay within the overall limit. You can only subscribe to one Lifetime ISA each tax year (maximum of £4,000). Your Lifetime ISA allowance forms part of the overall £20,000 annual allowance.

Your ISA allowance resets at the start of each tax year (on 6 April). The deadline for adding money is midnight 5 April.

You can only pay in to one Cash ISA per tax year. But you can hold multiple Cash ISAs.

The ISA allowance for a Junior ISA is lower. This year it’s £9,000.
