Do I Have To Open a New ISA Every Single Year

by Jim ONeil on May 15, 2011

in ISA's Individual Saving Accounts

This will largely depend on the type of ISA that you currently have. Most variable rate ISAs will offer the ability to make further contributions each year. While there are exceptions to this rule, it is more likely that you will be able to add to the account.

Fixed rate isa accounts are another story completely. The situation is actually the opposite of a variable rate ISA. There are exceptions that will allow a person to top up their account, but in most cases, further contributions are not available.

Most experts would recommend transferring the ISA out to another provider to take advantage of new interest rates and then adding the yearly contribution to the new account.

One of the exceptions to the fixed rate ISA rule mentioned above is the Northern Rock ISA. This ISA offers a 4.5 percent interest rate for five years, and offers a thirty-day investment window to increase the contribution.

Yorkshire also has a fixed rate ISA that offers a similar window where investors can add their yearly allowance to the account.


Not sure about ISA’s but…

We only have a joint account. When we got married we made the decision that everything we have is now "ours" including money, furniture, electronics, and movies. None of our bills are just mine or just his. As for savings, we don't have as much as we would like, but we're getting there. We don't have a percentage, we just put in what we feel comfortable with once we get paid.
