2 year fixed rate ISAs explained

  • A solid medium term option for ISA cash you don’t need to access
  • Make sure you can commit your money for the full 2 year term
  • Not usually allowed to make further deposits after account opening

If you don’t want to commit your money for too long, but are looking to earn a better rate of interest than is available on short term ISAs, a 2 year fixed rate ISA could be for you.

All cash ISAs have to allow you to transfer your money to another provider, at any point during the term. However, a sizeable interest penalty will be charged if you do – typically anything up to 180 days’ loss of interest.

Warning As with all fixed rate ISAs, it’s important that you’re certain you can commit your money for the full term.

In the 2018-19 tax year (which runs from 6 April to the following 5 April), you can deposit up to £20,000 into a cash ISA. You are only allowed to open one new cash ISA per tax year, so if you opt for a two-year fixed rate ISA, you will not be able to open another cash ISA until the next tax year. The only exception to this is if a provider allows you to ‘share’ your ISA allowance across their range of cash ISAs

When opening a fixed rate ISA, you’ll normally only be allowed to make a single deposit. So if you don’t deposit your full cash ISA allowance, and wished to make a further deposit later, you may only be able to contribute to a pre-existing easy access cash ISA as you’ll likely be unable to make further contributions to your fixed rate ISA pot.
