Leeds BS has delivered again, making a number of changes to its range of fixed rate ISAs.

Star of the show remains its Five Year Fixed Rate ISA paying 4.60% yearly.

A cash ISA account requiring a minimum investment of £1, it also permits transfers in.

Up to 25% of the investment can be withdrawn without notice or loss, but further withdrawals, closure of the account or transfers out will see 180 days' interest lost.

Sure to appeal to anyone wanting to invest for the long term, this product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.

"We are very aware that tax-free savings are extremely important to our customers," said Kim Rebecchi, Leeds Building Society's sales and marketing director.

"There is no doubt that investors should review their existing savings and consider transferring their ISAs, to ensure they are maximising their tax free return."
