Newcastle Junior ISA
Junior ISAs were introduced late 2011 and are available to any child who was not eligible for a Child Trust Fund. You can use them to build a nest-egg for your children which will be given to them once they turn 18.
You may already be saving for your children's future, but if the amount a parent invests means that the child receives more than £100 interest a year, then this interest begins to attract income tax! With a Junior Cash ISA, all the interest earned is tax-free - meaning more for the little one when they're a not-so-little one!
- Open with: £1
- Withdrawals are not permitted until the child’s 18th birthday
- Invest up to: £9,000 for tax year 2023/2024
- Transfers from other JISA providers are permitted
