The Simple Crowdfunding Innovative Finance ISA
What is the Innovative Finance ISA?
The Innovative Finance ISA (IF ISA) became available from 6 April 2016 and means that you can invest in peer-to-peer lending investments while keeping the tax advantages of traditional ISAs.
You can transfer your existing ISA’s or start a new one with Simple Crowdfunding. Use your annual ISA allowance to invest into property through our platform, receiving returns averaging 9% pa (pro-rata) tax free, secured on property. Look for the 'IF ISA Eligible' banner on the project image.
ALLOWANCE AND CRITERIA
With the annual allowance for 2017/2018 being £20,000, many investors are looking to diversify their portfolios and use this tax free wrapper to invest.
Anyone who is resident in the UK for tax purposes and over the age of 18 can set up an account with us and start investing.
It should be noted that the IF ISA is not the same as the Cash ISA and is not protected by the FSCS guarantee. Further details can be found in our Innovative Finance ISA FAQs.
