New tax year, new allowances

Happy new tax year!

Colourful string of lights

Today is the start of the new tax year, which means your 2019/20 tax allowances are ready and waiting for you to use. This year, you can invest:

  • £20,000 into an ISA
  • £4,368 into a Junior ISA
  • Up to £40,000 into a pension

The benefits of starting early

Starting to save early in the tax year means your money will have more time to grow tax-free which could result in higher returns. You’ll also avoid any last-minute rushing next April. We have some of the lowest fees around and plenty of research to help you make all the important decisions.

Get into the savings habit with regular savings

One of the easiest ways to invest is through regular savings. You’ll need to open an account with Bestinvest first and then you can set up regular savings. The money comes out automatically each month so you never have to worry about doing it yourself.

Make your existing investments work harder for you

Choosing the right investments is the key to making your money work harder. If you have investments sitting with other providers, you could transfer them to Bestinvest – we have everything you need to get them working hard for you, so you could have more money in the future.. Having them all under one roof means that you have more control and it might even save you money in provider fees.

Don’t forget the kids

Saving for children is easy. You can set up a Junior ISA and save as much as £4,368 over the tax year. We also have SIPPs for children letting you put away £2,880 over the tax year which is then topped up by the Government by 20% to make it up to £3,600.

Important information

The value of your investment can go down as well as up, and you can get back less than you originally invested.

SIPPs are not suitable for everyone. If you don’t want to invest across different asset classes or don’t
think you will make use of the investment choices that SIPPs give you, then a SIPP might not be right for
you.
