With £500 or more to deposit, you can earn tax free interest by placing your funds in a Junior Cash ISA.
Further deposits may be added to the account up to the Junior Cash ISA allowance. The annual limit for the 2018/2019 tax year with effect from 6th April 2018 is £4,260. Up to £4,260 of the allowance can be saved in a Junior ISA with one provider.
Withdrawals are not permitted on an account after the initial deposit until the child reaches 18. However, the account can be transferred to another Junior Cash ISA manager subject to 90 days notice of the transfer.
Transfers of existing Junior Cash ISA’s are accepted to our current variable rate offering, though these should be sent directly to us by inter bank transfer so as to ensure your tax free status is not affected. You should check with your existing provider to see if there are any charges or notice periods should you decide to transfer to us.
