The ISA allowance is the maximum amount you can invest across all types of ISAs in any one tax year. You can put your whole allowance into a particular type of ISA or you can split it between the different types of ISAs: Cash, Stocks & Shares, Lifetime and Innovative Finance. The ISA allowance for the 2019/20 tax year is £20,000. For Junior Cash ISAs, the allowance is £4,368.
Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) ISA rules require you to make a declaration, when applying to open an ISA. This is to confirm that you are eligible to subscribe to your ISA.
If you haven't subscribed to your ISA for a whole tax year, then you need to declare your eligibility again and confirm that you haven't paid into another ISA of the same type in the current tax year. You will not be able to make any further deposits into your ISA until a new declaration is made.

Alternatively you can download, print and complete a declaration form below, or you can contact us and we can post a declaration form to you.
