  • ISA tax benefits

    For the 2019/2020 tax year, the ISA allowance is £20,000, which represents the maximum amount of money you can invest in an ISA without paying capital gains tax and tax on further UK income.

    If you haven’t invested your full allowance by the time the UK tax year ends on 5 April, it will be gone for good – you can’t roll leftover balances to the following year.

    *Products you are not permitted to trade under the terms and conditions of your trustee will be disabled on your platform.

  • Outside the ISA wrapper, your investments may be subject to the following taxes:

    Share dividend income over £2,000 p.a:

    • Basic rate taxpayer - 7.5%
    • Higher rate taxpayer - 32.5%
    • Additional rate taxpayer - 38.1%
    • Saxo ISA - 0%

    Capital gains over £12,500 annual limit:

    • Basic rate taxpayer - 10%
    • Higher rate taxpayer - 20%
    • Additional rate taxpayer - 20%
    • Saxo ISA - 0%
