There are just hours before the 2010/11 tax year finishes, meaning investors are fast running out of time to maximise this year's ISA allowance.

Providers have battled frantically in recent weeks, launching many eye-catching ISA rates in a bid to attract savers' funds.

But those who are yet to invest have only hours left, as tomorrow (April 6) will herald the beginning of a brand new tax year.

You may have only invested half of your £5,100 allowance or just be a couple of hundred pounds off the maximum limit, but anything you don't invest now will not be allowed to be carried over to the 2011/12 tax year.

Or you may be new to the ISA game, in which case where have you been!?

ISAs are considered to be amongst the most efficient ways of saving as the interest is not liable for tax.

Your hunt for a last minute home for your savings may seem like something of an ISA jungle, as there are many accounts on the market.

But worry not, as Moneyfacts.co.uk can help you find the best account for your money.
