  • Provide families with simple, transparent, accessible and competitive product to save for children who do not have a CTF; and
  • Create the conditions for families to save more for their children than they would otherwise would.


What are Junior ISAs about?:

  • Available from 1st November 2011.
  • Both cash and stocks and shares ISAs will be available.
  • Junior ISAs are tax advantaged for both the child holding the account and their parents.
  • All UK resident children (aged under 18) who were not eligible for a CTF would be eligible for a Junior ISA. This includes children born before the start of CTF eligibility in September 2002.
  • Children will be entitled to hold one cash and one stocks and shares Junior ISA.
  • It will be possible to transfer accounts between providers but not hold more than one cash and one stocks and shares Junior ISA at any time.
  • Anyone with parental responsibility for an eligible child would be able to open a junior ISA for that child.
  • Eligible children over 16 would be able to open Junior ISAs for themselves.

  • At 16 the child would assume management responsibility for their Junior ISA account(s).
  • It is not possible to transfer CTFs into Junior ISAs or vice versa.
  • The total contributions into Junior ISA(s) is £3,600.
