Enjoy Tax-Efficient Savings
What is an ISA?
Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) are a little gift from the UK government, so you should really make the most of them.
ISAs are a great way for UK residents to save or invest up to £20,000 tax-efficiently each year
There are four main types of ISA for over 18s: Cash ISA, Investment ISA, Innovative Finance ISA and Lifetime ISA
You can open one each of the four ISA types per year, and split your allowance between them (up to £4000 in a Lifetime ISA)
You can open an investment ISA with connectpx, provided you haven’t opened another stocks and shares ISA this tax year
A couple saving their maximum annual ISA allowance into an investment ISA each year, could become ISA millionaires* in just 14 years
*Figures assume two adults both saving their maximum ISA allowance of £20,000 p.a. in a connectpx Adventurous Plan. Value of investment after 14 years would be £1,057,260, after fees.
Before ISAs there were PEPs (Personal Equity Plans) and TESSAs (Tax-Exempt Special Savings Accounts)
Almost half the adult population of the UK have an ISA, with the highest regional uptake being in the South West of England

Transfer to a connectpx ISA
Why would you transfer?
With the ISA limit increased to £20,000, now may be a good time to consider putting some of your money in an Investment ISA:
- Use part or all of your ISA allowance to save tax-efficiently in an Investment ISA for a chance of better returns.
- Save money on fees – you may be paying higher fees for your other investment ISAs and could save if you consolidate
- Your money won’t be locked away, you can withdraw or transfer it at any time, if you need to
How to do it?
You can transfer any cash ISAs or Investment ISAs (aka Stocks and Shares ISAs) you have with other providers to connectpx
Transferring ISAs from previous tax years doesn’t impact your current ISA allowance at all, so you can still put up to £20,000 into an ISA this tax year. However, if you want to transfer an ISA you’ve paid into this tax year, you have to transfer the whole amount, and it will count towards this year’s ISA allowance
Within your connectpx ISA, you can set up as many different ISA Plans as you like, both for transfers in and for this year’s ISA allowance
When you transfer an ISA to connectpx, you should always use the official ISA Transfer Form to retain the ISA tax benefits
