Teachers BS has launched a new notice Cash ISA that complements its existing range of products very well.

The Cash ISA Plus Issue 1 is a no notice postal operated product with a minimum investment of £3.6K paying 2.75% yearly, £25K - 3.00%.

Transfers in are accepted, while transfers out and withdrawals in the first 12 months are subject to 90 days' loss of interest.

Rate includes 1.00% bonus for 12 months at £3.6K and 1.25% at £25K. Withdrawals are via BACS to a nominated account. After 12 months the rate reverts to Easy Access Cash ISA terms and conditions.

Paying up to 3.00%, this account sits within the top six paying variable rate ISAs and the ability to transfer in previous years' ISA allowance adds to its appeal. Investors should review the rate after the bonus period expires.

This ISA has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
