2020/21 Tax Planning Opportunities: ISA Allowance
With interest rates on cash savings extremely low, if you have cash savings you could achieve greater returns by investing into advised investment funds. £20,000 per year can be invested into ISAs completely tax-free, including any growth and income.
Where possible it is always a great idea to maximise your contributions (and your family's) every year.
Suitable if you:
- Have cash savings
- Are unhappy with the returns on your cash savings
- Have capital gains liabilities
Those aged 18-50 can contribute up to £9,000 per year into a Lifetime ISA (LISA), which benefits from a 25% bonus from the Government - this can be used to fund a house deposit or for retirement.
Those under the age of 18 can still benefit:
- Under 18s can contribute up to £9,000 per year into a Junior ISA (JISA)
- Children of clients who are aged between 16 and 18 can have both a £20,000 cash ISA and a £9,000 JISA
Anyone over the age of 18 can have a stocks and shares ISA.
