About Share Dealing ISAs

Stocks and shares ISAs are one of the most flexible and tax efficient ways to invest in the UK and global stock markets.

Everyone who is aged 18 or over and UK resident for tax purposes receives an annual stocks and shares ISA allowance from the government, which can only be used within the tax year. Once a tax year is over, you can't go back and use your allowance retrospectively. 

The ISA limit for the current tax year is £11,880. You can choose to invest your full allowance into a Stocks & Shares ISA or alternatively you can split your allowance between a Cash ISA and a Stocks & Shares ISA, as long as no more than £5,940 is saved in a Cash ISA in any one tax year and the overall ISA allowance is not exceeded. For example, if you invest £10,000 into your Stocks & Shares ISA you must save no more than £1,880 in a Cash ISA.

Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change in the future.
