Interactive Investor ISA hub

The end of a tax year brings with it a deadline for using certain tax allowances - such as your ISA allowance, the Annual Allowance for pension contributions, and a child's Junior ISA allowance. Here, we've brought together our award-winning analysis and commentary into this ISA and tax year-end hub.

Check back here regularly to stay up to date with all the latest company analysis,  investment ideas and technical insights from our expert journalists and the City of London's finest.

If you'd like to receive regular updates straight to your inbox, you can register for our free daily and weekly newsletters here.

To get you started, here's a reminder of the current allowances: they apply to individuals, so a couple can each use these allowances
ISA £15,240 across all current year ISAs
(i.e. Cash, Stocks & Shares and Innovative Finance ISA)
Any unused allowance from a previous year is lost - you cannot carry it forward. Money moved between ISAs that are a past year contribution, or the use of an Additional Permitted Subscription do not count as a current year subscription.
Pension/SIPP £40,000 across all your pensions. Plus, you can carry forward any unsuited allowance from the past three years. The annual allowance falls to £10,000 once you start drawing on your pension.
Junior ISA £4,080 across all current year JISAs (i.e. Cash and Stocks & Share JISAs) A Child Trust Fund account, which has the same annual allowance, can be transferred to a Junior ISA. Unlike a JISA, the CTF 'year' runs from the child's birthday.
Dividend Allowance £5,000 Excludes dividend income in an ISA or Pension/SIPP
Savings Allowance Basic rate tax payer - £1,000 Higher rate tax payer - £500 Earnings in excess of £150,000 p.a. - no allowance
Capital Gains Tax £11,100
