    Information on the tax treatment of ISAs

    Investors should be aware that the favourable tax treatment of ISAs may change or not be maintained in the future.

     

    Reference to “tax efficiency” and “tax-free”on this site is based on the assumption that the depositor/investor has received the benefits free of Personal Income and Capital Gains Tax.

     

    The First Trust Bank Cash ISA product does not apply the Government Stakeholder Standards. Accounts that meet the Stakeholder Standard aren’t guaranteed to perform better than other accounts. It is simply that the account meets all of the Government’s requirements.
