Your interest

We will pay annual tax-free interest into the Junior ISA on 5th April each year until the account matures on the child's 18th birthday. We will send a statement to the registered contact shortly after 5th April telling them how much interest has been earned.

Paying money in


The minimum amount to open an account is £1.

You can make an unlimited amount of deposits up to the maximum allowance of £4,128. 

You can also transfer in external Junior ISAs and Child Trust Funds, provided the full balance is transferred. 

You will start to earn interest on the amount you transfer from the day that we receive your funds electronically from your current ISA provider, or from the second day that we receive a transfer cheque. Under the HMRC (HM Revenue and Customs) guidelines your current provider is obliged to complete the transfer within 15 days of receiving the request from us. 

If you would like to use your maximum Junior ISA allowance (£4,128) by investing in a stocks and shares Junior ISA too, we can offer this through our financial planning service.

Please note that with a stocks and shares Junior ISA, their value can fall as well as rise.

Taking money out


No withdrawals can be made until the child reaches 18.

You must keep at least £1 in your account at all times.

What happens when the term ends?

The Junior ISA is a term account and when the term ends on the child's 18th birthday, the account balance will be transfered to our instant access Cash ISA account, or the nearest equivalent at the time. As per the terms and conditions of the account, once the young person reaches their 18th birthday, the adult's name will be removed from the account. Following this, they will have full control over the management of the account and the funds deposited. They will continue to earn tax-free interest at the prevailing variable Cash ISA rate.
