New tax year, new allowances

Published: 06 Apr 2019 Updated: 13 Jun 2022

In the 2019/20 tax year you can invest:

  • £20,000 into an ISA
  • £4,368 into a Junior ISA
  • Up to £40,000 into a pension

Kick off the new year with a financial review

Why not get the new tax year off to a flying start by booking an initial consultation with a financial planner? During your consultation a Tilney financial planner can talk to you about your existing investments, your plans for the future and how we could help you achieve them. It won’t cost you anything and there is no obligation to sign up for any services but if you do decide it’s time to do things differently, we can show you how Tilney can help.
