Features and benefits

Fixed Rate ISA

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

An ISA allows UK residents aged 16 or over to save up to £15,000 tax-free with one provider, each tax year. 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.

Here's what you get with a Fixed Rate ISA ...

The gross rate of interest is the interest rate payable before any income tax is deducted (if you do pay tax).
The net rate of interest is the interest payable after any income tax is deducted (if you do pay tax).
Tax-free is the contractual rate of interest payable where interest is exempt from income tax.
The tax information provided is based on our current understanding of current law and HM Revenue & Customs practice which can change.
