1 year Fixed Rate ISA

If you want to save a lump sum then a Fixed Rate cash ISA offers a tax-free interest rate that won't change during your chosen term.

A cash ISA allows UK residents aged 16 or over to save up to their annual ISA allowance tax-free with one provider each tax year. The allowance is £15,240 for 2015/2016. With most savings accounts, if you are a tax payer the tax man gets a cut from the interest you earn, that's why it's reassuring to know that with a cash ISA all the interest you earn, you keep.
