Choose an investment account that meets your needs

General investment

These accounts (Trading Account, Joint Trading Account and Company Account) give you the flexibility to invest on your terms. There is no upper limit on how much you can invest, and you can withdraw your funds at any time, but they do not have the tax advantages of other accounts.

ISA

The Stocks and Shares ISA gives you access to the same investments as a general investment account, without hitting you with income tax or capital gains tax. There is an annual limit on how much you can pay in – this year it is £20,000 – and while there are no withdrawal penalties, you may lose some of your allowance if you take cash out before the end of the tax year. 

SIPP

SIPPs are a long-term investment with important tax benefits. You can receive tax relief for every contribution you make to your SIPP, of between 20% and 45% based on your tax band (this can be higher for Welsh and Scottish taxpayers). The maximum annual contribution is linked to your earnings, and your pot is locked until you reach the age of 55.
