One of the UK’s most popular ways to hold your investments because of its tax efficiency.


Why pay into a stocks and shares ISA?

A stocks and shares Individual Savings Account (ISA) lets you invest your money. Here's why they're one of the UK's most popular ways to invest:

  • You don’t pay income tax or capital gains tax on your investments
  • The ISA allowance for this tax year is £20,000

For amounts over £20,000 you can use our Investment Account.

Transferring an ISA is easy

If you already have a cash or stocks and shares ISA elsewhere, it’s simple to transfer it to a Santander Stocks and Shares ISA. Request your ISA transfer directly using the Investment Hub, as withdrawing money, instead of transferring your ISA means it loses its tax-efficient status.
