Alternatively you can split your allowance by investing up to £4,000 in a lifetime ISA and the remaining allowance between any combination of the other three types of ISA, as long as you don't exceed £20,000 in total across your ISAs.

Variable rate cash ISAs

All the benefits of an easy access account and tax free savings as well.

Gross rate means that we will not deduct tax automatically from your interest. You are responsible for paying any tax due to HM Revenue and Customs.

AER means Annual Equivalent Rate. AER illustrates what your interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded each year and allows you to easily compare different offers.

Tax free is the contractual rate of interest payable where interest is exempt from income tax.
