What is a General Investment Account (GIA)?

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

You can deposit up to £85,000 per week into the General Investment Account.

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.
