What is a General Investment Account (GIA)?

A General Investment Account allows you to invest outside of tax wrappers such as personal pensions and Stocks & Shares ISAs. It offers no tax relief but you only pay tax on gains above £12,300, subject to having no other investments.

There’s no annual limit on how much you can contribute, however we limit contributions to £85,000 per week. You can find more info on our GIA here.

It's important you know

All investing should be regarded as longer term. The value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.
