How to apply or transfer into a Junior ISA

Before you apply for a Junior ISA you need to make sure that you read our Junior ISA Key Features Document and Junior ISA Terms of Service.
Parental Responsibility
To apply for a Junior ISA you must have Parental Responsibility for the child you are opening the account for. This is a HMRC requirement. Please be aware that Grandparents do not automatically have Parental Responsibility.
Risk warning
The value of any investment can go down as well as up and your child might not get back what was originally invested. The tax treatment of a Junior ISA depends on individual circumstances and tax rules may change. If you’re unsure about the suitability of a Junior ISA or any investment please speak to a suitably qualified financial adviser.
