All our ISAs allow access to your money but there may be restrictions or charges that vary depending on which ISA it is that you hold.
Be aware that if you take money out, and you wish to put it back later, this will count against your annual ISA allowance for that tax year. This means that if you have already used up your annual ISA allowance, any money you take out cannot then be put back in during the same tax year.
AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if we paid interest and added it to your account each year.
Tax Free explained
The tax free rate is the rate of interest payable where interest is exempt from income tax. The favourable tax treatment of ISAs may change in the future.
