You keep all your profits
Junior Stocks & Shares ISAs are very tax-efficient compared to normal investment accounts since there's no Capital Gains Tax or further Income Tax to pay on your profits.
A lump sum for when they need it most
The money invested in a Junior ISA is released to your child when they reach 18 years old; it can’t be withdrawn before this time. The aim is to give them a head start in adult life: university fees, travelling, a car or maybe even a house deposit.
Who can open a Ready-made Junior ISA?
Parents and guardians with parental responsibility can open Junior ISAs for children. This means you must have the legal rights, duties, powers, responsibilities and authority a parent has for a child and the child's property. Once the account is open, anyone can pay in money. 16-17 year olds are also able to open Junior ISAs for themselves.
If you don’t have parental responsibility for the child, you could always open a Junior Investment Account instead.
Invest up to £4,080 this tax year
The Government sets a limit on how much you can invest in a Junior ISA each tax year (from 06 April one year to 05 April the next). This is known as your Junior ISA allowance. It usually increases each year, but there’s no catching up next year if you don’t invest the full amount. It’s a case of ‘use it or lose it’! The Junior ISA allowance 2016/17 is £4,080.
