Cash ISAs - Tax efficient savings with The Cambridge
If you're saving for something special, or just plain saving, an ISA can be one of the best savings accounts to help you make the most of your money. Because you don't pay tax on the interest it earns, and it doesn't count towards your Personal Savings Allowance, you get to keep every penny.
All about ISAs
There are several different types of ISA so it's important that you understand how they work. You may want the best ISA rates but you also need to consider if you will need to access your money, and what it means when you put your savings into an ISA. We recommend you read our guide: What you need to know about ISAs.
The guide gives you some important information to help you decide whether one of our cash ISAs is right for you.

The Tax-free rate is the contractual rate of interest payable where interest is exempt from income tax.
The Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) is a notional rate which illustrates what the gross interest rate would be if interest was paid and added to the account annually. AERs on an account which pays monthly interest assumes interest is added to the account at the end of each month during the year. In practice, the option to have interest added in this way is not available on our monthly interest accounts.
Tax treatment and rate of interest payable will depend on individual circumstances and may change in the future.
