Frequently asked questions?

  • Yes, you can have more than one Share Dealing ISA. You may only pay into one of them each tax year. You can have other types of ISAs at the same time. Again, you are only able to pay into one of each type of ISA in a tax year (subject to the annual ISA allowance).

  • No, that’s one of the best things about a Share Dealing ISA. Any dividends and interest payments from your shares are completely free from UK income tax. You also won’t need to pay Capital Gains Tax on any gains from your investments.

  • Yes, you can. When you transfer, the cash will stay in your account until you choose to invest it. You can transfer an existing Lloyds Bank cash ISA or a cash ISA from another provider to one of our Share Dealing ISAs.

  • As with all investments, there is risk involved with a Share Dealing ISA. It’s important to remember that the value of investments and the income from them can fall and rise. Before taking out any investment product, you’ll need to be clear with how you feel about risk and how able you are to take losses.

  • A dividend is a payment made from a company on a set date to those who have bought and hold their shares. This usually happens when a company has made a profit.

    If you do not invest within an ISA, you may pay tax on any amount over the dividend allowance. Following the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement in 2022, the dividend allowance has changed to £1,000 in April 2023. It will be further reduced to £500 from April 2024. 

    But don’t worry, if you are investing through a Share Dealing ISA, any dividends and interest payments from your shares are completely free from UK income tax. If you’re not investing through a Sharing Dealing ISA, you can open one today.

  • Capital Gains Tax is tax you pay on any gains you’ve made from selling assets, such as shares. The current allowance is £6,000, following the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement in 2022. You’ll have to pay tax on any gains above this amount.

    A further reduction to £3,000 will take place from April 2024.

    If you invest through an ISA, you won’t pay this tax on any gains made through your investments. If you are not investing through an ISA, you can open one today.
