Stocks and shares ISA

By choosing a stocks and shares ISA, your clients will benefit from access to a wide range of investment opportunities covering all the main asset types, such as shares, commercial property, fixed interest securities and cash. 

The flexible ISA subscription rules introduced on 6 April 2016 don't apply to this ISA. This means withdrawals from this ISA can’t be replaced without them counting against the annual subscription limit.

The value of a stocks and shares ISA can fall as well as rise, and clients may get back less than they invest. Your clients should be prepared to hold the investment for at least five years – ideally longer.

The favourable tax treatment of ISAs may not be maintained in the future and is subject to change.  The benefit of the tax treatment depends on individual circumstances.
