ISAs are a savings scheme initiated by the Government and are subject to change by them. For example, the favourable tax treatment may not be maintained. Cash ISAs allow you to save tax-free, so your interest is paid gross with no tax deducted. AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year. Information correct at time of sending.

Please note that if you deposit into your new Cash ISA in the 2013/2014 tax year you will not be able to subscribe to another Cash ISA in the same tax year. You must not subscribe more than £11,520 in total to ISAs in the 2013/2014 tax year, of which up to £5,760 can be held in a Cash ISA.
