A Junior ISA is a tax efficient way to save for your child’s future. You can invest in a Junior ISA each year and the money invested will grow over time and be available to your child on their 18th birthday.
Junior ISAs share the same tax benefits as a normal adult ISA, but they’re exclusively available to people under the age of 18. They’re a great way to invest for a child, for the medium to long term, as they protect their money from income tax and capital gains tax.
Junior ISA at a glance:
- Invest up to £4128, the annual Junior ISA allowance for 2017/18
- Any investment growth is free of income or capital gains tax
- Once set up, anyone can contribute to a child’s account at any time, up to the annual limit
- The money is invested and locked away until your child is 18. When your child turns 18 it becomes their ISA and they assume full control.
- Junior ISAs are only available to UK resident children under 18.
