Leeds Building Society's One Year Fixed Rate ISA paying 3.05% ensures the new tax year is welcomed with a bang.

While a low minimum investment of £1 makes it accessible to almost everyone, additional payments are also allowed for the next 12 months.

Flexibility comes in the form of penalty free access to 25% of the investment, although further withdrawals or early closure of the account will be at the considerable cost of 90 days' loss of interest.

Given a rate that sits towards the top end of the one year market and the access the ISA allows, we have awarded this product four of five Moneyfacts stars.
