An ISA is basically a way of reducing the amount of tax you pay on an investment. Currently, the maximum allowance is £7,200 a Tax Year, of which up to £3,600 can be in a cash ISA. Any returns within the ISA will then be tax efficient, which means you donít pay additional Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax on them. Bear in mind however the favourable tax status of ISAs may not be maintained in future. The value of tax advantages depends on individual circumstances. You may hold Funds or Stocks and Shares in a firstdirect ISA.
