Junior ISA

Start saving for a child’s future by investing in a Stocks and Shares Junior ISA on their behalf.

A Junior ISA (JISA) is a tax-efficient way to save for your child, and pay no income tax or Capital Gains tax on any returns. The Junior ISA allowance for the 2019/20 tax year is £4,368, and you have until 5 April 2020 to use it. Control of the ISA passes automatically to your child at age 18. 

Important information - please keep in mind that the value of investments can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invest. The value of tax savings and eligibility to invest in a Junior ISA depend on personal circumstances. All tax rules may change in future. Withdrawals from a Junior ISA will not be possible until the child reaches age 18.
