Principality BS has joined in the new tax year party with the launch of its new range of fixed rate ISAs.

If you're looking to invest for either one or two years, start a new cash ISA or simply transfer funds from an existing ISA, these products could be just the ticket.

With a rate of 3.30%, the two year product is amongst the top six in its field, while the rest give the market leaders a decent run for their money too.

Minimum investment is £3.6K if you're using you're opening a new ISA and using your allowance for the 2009/10 tax year, while it's £1 if you're looking to transfer in.

However, with early closure of the accounts and transfer outs only allowed with the loss of 180 days' interest, you'll need to be doubly sure you can live without the funds for the full term.

This range of products has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
