Tax-free savings accounts

Save in a Cash ISA, and pay no tax on the interest you earn

We have a range of Cash ISAs on offer - just scroll down to compare these tax-free accounts.

Introducing our Tax-free savings accounts

You can invest in two separate ISAs each tax year; a Cash ISA and a Stocks & Shares ISA (at present, Yorkshire Building Society does not offer a Stocks & Shares ISA). Every eligible individual will have a total annual Cash ISA Limit allowance of £15,240 for the 2016/2017 tax year. This can be invested in the following ways:

  • Open a Cash ISA from age 16 and invest up to £15,240 with one provider; or
  • Open a Stocks & Shares ISA from age 18 and invest up to £15,240 with one provider; or
  • A combination of Cash ISA and Stocks & Shares ISA (minimum age is 18) up to the overall maximum subscription limit of £15,240. This can be split between two providers. However you can only subscribe into one Cash ISA and one Stocks & Shares ISA in a tax year.
