This article is part of our Guide to Maximising Your Pension, helping investors build up the maximum possible pension pot – and turn it into the maximum possible retirement income. 

Investors who have not utilised their ISA allowance better take action as soon possible: as the end of the tax year approaches, time is running out to use the 2015/16 tax year’s £15,240 allowance.

Under the shield of an ISA wrapper, most assets, subject to various annual allowances are tax free. This includes cash in special savings accounts, investment in stocks, bonds, open-end and closed-end funds. The ISA allowance can be divided into cash saving ISAs and investment ISAs, however only one of each can be opened in each tax year. Therefore, investors should take advantage of each year’s allowance to minimise tax on capital gains in any investment made.
