Premier Cash ISA

  • It's easy to start: Open with just £100

Post Office Money Premier Cash ISA is provided by Family Investments. Savings in Post Office Money cash ISAs are deposited with Bank of Ireland UK.

How it works

1.40% gross/AER variable

Save from £100+ tax-free with our Premier Cash ISA.

  • Tax-free savings: pay no tax on the interest you earn
  • Accessible: the flexibility to make up to two withdrawals each tax year

Benefit from a 1.40% tax-free/AER variable rate which includes a 0.75% tax-free/AER fixed bonus for the first 18 months.

The tax advantages of ISAs depend on your individual circumstances and the tax status may change in the future.

Decide how you’d like to invest:

a. Use current tax year allowance – from £100 up to £15,240 (subject to any stocks and shares contribution).

And/or:

b.Transfer an existing ISA held with another provider – there is no upper limit to the value of ISAs you can transfer but it must be at least £100. Before making a decision to transfer your ISA to us, you should check if your current provider will charge a fee.

Want to withdraw your money? No problem. You can make a maximum of two withdrawals each tax year (the minimum withdrawal amount is £10 or the value of your ISA if it is less) any more and you'll need to transfer to another provider or close your ISA.

If you close your ISA, your money will no longer benefit from the tax advantages of ISAs in the future.

You can only pay into one cash ISA each tax year. If you have paid into your Premier Cash ISA in the tax year you close it, you won’t be able to pay money into another cash ISA in the same tax year. 

Watch your savings grow – interest is calculated daily and will be paid annually in March.
