Do you know about the new ISA rules? Unfortunately it seems that a lot of people don't, with far too few being aware of the changes or how they could benefit individual savers. In fact, research from Halifax has found that 23% of ISA holders surveyed have no idea that their allowance is set to increase and 28% would like more help in understanding the changes, and luckily we're here to offer that support.
If you're not yet fully aware of the rules and how they could affect you, we've got a quick overview of the six key things you need to know about…
All other rules remain the same, such as not being able to top up an ISA from a previous tax year and being unable to rollover any unused allowance. The new rules simply offer a higher tax-free allowance with more simplicity, flexibility and convenience, and if you haven't yet got your ISA sorted for the current year it's a great time to do so – it'll automatically become a NISA when the time comes and most providers will let you top up, so start saving and make the most of your allowance!
