Frequently asked questions

    What is an ISA?
    An ISA is an Individual Savings Account that works like a normal savings account, except you don’t pay any UK income or capital gains tax. There are four types of ISA: cash, stocks and shares, innovative finance and lifetime. The British Pearl ISA is an innovative finance ISA.

    For more information please see the HMRC website here.
    Who can open a British Pearl ISA?
    To be eligible to open and invest in a British Pearl ISA you need to be a UK resident for tax purposes and aged 18 or over.
    You can have multiple ISAs but you can only open one of each type in a tax year. The current tax year runs from 6 April 2018 to 5 April 2019.

    For more information please see the HMRC website here.
    Can I have a standard British Pearl account as well?
    Absolutely. The two accounts work in the same way. The only difference is that you do not have to pay any income or capital gains tax on loans held in your British Pearl ISA account.
    How much can I invest?
    The total amount you can save in ISAs in the current tax year is £20,000. This is known as the ISA allowance. The current tax year runs from 6 April 2018 to 5 April 2019. You can take advantage of your allowance by opening a British Pearl ISA. If you have any existing ISAs, you can transfer funds from them over to us. Bear in mind that you cannot carry over any unused allowance from one tax year to another. The ISA allowance resets back to the annual limit set by the government.
    How secure are the loans?
    The loans are backed by the individual property that they are against. This means that the loan repayments are paid first when the property is sold before any cash is distributed to the Share Investors.
    Can I buy both shares and loans in my ISA?
    You are currently only able to buy loans in the ISA.
    Is this ISA flexible?
    Yes, the British Pearl ISA is 'Flexible'. This means that if you take any cash out of your British Pearl ISA you can replace it during the same tax year without using up any of your annual allowance. So, if you had used up all of your allowance but needed to take out £5,000 for an emergency, you would be able to put £5,000 back in before the end of the tax year.
    What are the charges?
    There are no additional charges for opening a British Pearl ISA, transferring ISAs over or the day to day management of your ISA. All fees are exactly the same as the standard British Pearl account.

Happy customers

The days of investing my £20k annual ISA allowance with my bank are over. Thank you for giving me a really great alternative option. I barely even got 1% in my old Cash ISA, which I now intend on transferring to British Pearl. I’m now getting 4.4% p.a. interest paid every month, which I usually re-invest. I have recommended British Pearl to all my family and friends with utter confidence from my experience so far. Thank you to all the team at British Pearl!
