Frequently asked questions about Cash ISAs.
A Cash ISA is simply a savings account where you do not have to pay tax on the interest you earn.
The annual ISA allowance is set by the government. For the current tax year the ISA subscription limit is £20,000. Each tax year runs from 6 April.
No. A Cash ISA can only be held by an individual in a single name.
Our Cash ISAs are available for existing members or new applicants resident in our local postcode areas IP, NR, CO, CM, CB and PE. Applicants must be aged 16 or over to open a Cash ISA.
A Stocks and Shares ISA is an investment tool which allows holders to invest in equities (stocks and shares). Suffolk Building Society does not offer Stocks and Shares ISAs.
To check whether you can withdraw funds from your Cash ISA you will need to check your individual product terms and conditions.
You can only invest into one Cash ISA in each tax year, regardless of how many Cash ISAs you may hold with different providers.
Yes, you can hold more than one Cash ISA with different providers. However, you cannot invest into more than one Cash ISA in each tax year.
To check whether you can transfer-in funds from your other Cash ISA(s) you will need to check the individual product terms and conditions. It is important you follow the transfer-in procedures to protect the tax free status of your funds, rather than withdrawing your money and paying into the new account yourself – the latter would be seen as a new investment and then subject to the maximum subscription limits for that tax year.

Excellent service always at Woodbridge. Welcoming staff at the branch.
I always use Nacton Branch for any transactions. They are always most helpful and nothing is too much trouble, even when I need them to explain things they take the time to help me to understand. Lots of different staff but always lovely.
I contacted my local branch with regards saving, I was dealt with politely and with clear information. My cheque was cleared quickly and the transaction confirmed by telephone
