Cash ISAs

A cash ISA (Individual Savings Account) is a tax-free savings account. That means you won’t pay tax on the interest you earn. Compare our range of accounts and find the best cash ISA that suits your needs.

You can pay up to £20,000 into a cash ISA in the tax year of 2022/23. Whether you’d like easy access or a fixed rate ISA, it’s important to find the right option for you.

At Shawbrook, we prefer to keep our approach to savings as straightforward as possible. That’s why you can rest assured we'll always be upfront about everything you need to know.

Terms explained

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates the interest rate if it was paid and compounded each year. We quote the AER on all of our accounts so that you can compare our products with those of other banks.

GROSS is the interest rate without the deduction of income tax. This is the interest rate paid on your account.

Important ISA Information

View All ISA FAQs

It’s important you have all the details before you open an account. You can find more information about specific cash ISAs by clicking through on the comparison table above. If you open an account and change your mind, we offer a 14 day cooling off period where you can close it without losing interest or incurring penalties.

You can also find useful information below about our ISA accounts.

To open an account, you must be at least 18 years old, a permanent UK resident, and only subject to UK tax. Your cash ISA must be in the name of one person; joint accounts are not permitted.

You can only open and subscribe to one ISA account with Shawbrook Bank in any given tax year. You cannot open an ISA acting on behalf of an account holder with power of attorney, guardianship or intervention order.

You can only apply for a cash ISA online. Once your account is open, you can manage it using our secure messaging system or by telephone. You can find these details on our contact page.

All of our cash ISAs have the same balance limits, with a minimum deposit of £1,000 and a maximum deposit of £20,000 in any given tax year. The maximum balance for our ISAs is £250,000. If you’re transferring in an existing cash ISA, this must be valued as £250,000 or below.

After you've applied and opened your Shawbrook cash ISA, log in to your account to view the letter named ‘ISA Etransfer In' in your eDocuments. This will tell you if your transfer was completed electronically or not.

The default and most straightforward method of transferring your ISA is an electronic transfer. However, some providers are not compatible with electronic transfers, so we may need to transfer by post.

All ISA transfers, both electronic and non-electronic, will be processed within 15 working days. This process may take longer if your transfer is referred or delayed.

You can transfer your existing cash ISA account with another provider to Shawbrook, but you must first apply for a new cash ISA. We'll ask you about your current ISA as part of the application process. We will then work with your current provider to complete the transfer.

To transfer your Shawbrook ISA to another Shawbrook ISA, send us a secure message from your customer portal, and we'll take care of the rest. If you withdraw your savings from your existing cash ISA and deposit into your new Shawbrook ISA without getting in touch first, the deposit will count towards your £20,000 tax-free allowance for that tax year. We can transfer it for you without losing your allowance.

All of our cash ISAs allow withdrawals.

You won't be charged a fee if you withdraw money from your easy access cash ISA. There are no limits to the number of withdrawals you can make with an easy access cash ISA, but the account is subject to a minimum withdrawal amount of £500.

With our fixed cash ISAs, partial withdrawals or account closures made before the end of the fixed term are subject to a fee (also known as the early exit charge).

Here is an overview of our early exit charges for withdrawals made before the end of your fixed term:

  • 6 Month Fixed - subject to a loss of 90 days' interest
  • 1 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 90 days’ interest
  • 18 Months Fixed — subject to a loss of 90 days’ interest
  • 2 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 180 days’ interest
  • 3 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 270 days’ interest
  • 5 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 360 days’ interest
  • 7 Year Fixed — subject to a loss of 360 days’ interest

All Shawbrook Bank ISAs are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS will guarantee your ISA savings up to £85,000 per eligible person.
