How do I open and manage my account?Eligibility

The account is available to individuals aged 16 or over. You must be a UK resident for tax purposes or be performing duties as a Crown employee, or be married to, or in a civil partnership with such a person.

The account can only be held in your name.

You may only subscribe to one Cash ISA in a single tax year.

Account opening and operation

The account can be opened through any of our branches, via our website or by post.

The account can only be operated in branch or by post

Minimum operating balance: £100.

Maximum balance: £20,000 in the 2017/2018 tax year less any amount you have already subscribed in a Stocks and Shares ISA, Innovative Finance ISA and/or Lifetime ISA in the same tax year.

Once opened, deposits can be made up to and including 31 January 2018. After this date the account may be closed for further deposits at any time and without notice.

Where you have not invested your full ISA allowance for the 2017/2018 tax year and the account has closed for further deposits, you will only be able to utilise this by investing in another type of ISA or by transferring your Cash ISA to another Leeds Building Society Cash ISA or to another ISA manager, in which case you may incur a loss of interest.
Can I withdraw money?Withdrawals/transfers are permitted, although they will be subject to 365 days’ loss of interest or an equivalent amount withdrawn/transferred.

This is not a flexible ISA meaning any amount withdrawn cannot be replaced and will count towards your yearly ISA limit.

You can withdraw up to a maximum of £300 in cash in branch each day. If you require more than this amount (up to a maximum of £1,000) you will need to provide the Society with 48 hours' notice.

The account will mature at midnight on 2 January 2023. On the day after maturity (3 January 2023), your funds (including interest) will be transferred to an instant access ISA maturity account. Full details including terms and conditions will be provided before maturity.
Additional InformationThis is a Cash ISA. Interest payable is exempt from income tax. The tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each customer and may be subject to change in the future.

The amounts you can invest are set by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and therefore may change.
