    A to Z of tax year end

    The Jisa offers an excellent opportunity to support your clients in planning for the tax year end. Jisa carries a subscription limit for this tax year of £4,260, meaning clients can maximise tax allowances while investing in their childrens’ or grandchildrens’ futures. Check out our comprehensive tax-year end support page for technical factsheets on tax year end opportunities surrounding Jisa and Isa, pensions and more.


    A child is eligible to open a Jisa if they’re resident in the UK and under the age of 18 and don’t have a Child Trust Fund (or if they’re transferring a CTF into the Jisa). A child under 16 can’t complete a Jisa application themselves. Only a person with parental responsibility can complete the application.

    Subscription limits

    The overall Jisa subscription limit is £4,260 for the 2018/19 tax year (£4,368 for 2019/20). This can be split over a cash Jisa and a stocks and shares Jisa. If the full subscription isn’t used within the tax year, it will be lost. There’s no opportunity to carry it forward, so it’s important to ‘use it or lose it’.

    Registered contact

    A Jisa account must have a registered contact and, most often, this will be the person who completed the Jisa application. There can be only one registered contact for a Jisa at any time and they are the person authorised to give instructions about the management of the account.
