Frequently answered questions

Is a Cash ISA worth it?

The introduction of the Personal Savings Allowance means ISAs aren’t the only way to earn interest tax-free but ISAs are still an attractive option for savers.

The interest on your savings won’t count towards your Personal Savings Allowance, and of course, you can save up to £20,000 in annual tax-free savings.

How much can you pay into a Cash ISA?

The total annual ISA allowance is £20,000 for the 2022/23 tax year. Money you deposit into an ISA will be counted as part of your yearly allowance, unless you are replacing money you have previously withdrawn from a flexible ISA in the same tax year.

If unused, your allowance limit doesn’t carry over to the next tax year and is lost. If you already have money deposited into an ISA in a previous tax year and want to move it to a new ISA, that doesn’t count towards your allowance for the current tax year.

Can I have more than one Cash ISA?

No, you can’t save into more than one Cash ISAs in a tax year.

You can save into one Cash ISA and other types of ISAs not provided by YBS e.g. Stocks & Shares. You can also transfer your money between ISA accounts, including those not offered by YBS, subject to the product terms and conditions.
