It is a legal requirement to confirm what type of investor you are and verify your identity to open your free account.
All that is needed is your National Insurance (NI) number to open your ISA. You can open it in a second, it is that simple.
Securely fund your wallet via debit card or bank transfer. Easily transfer cash from your main account into your ISA. When choosing your investment, simply select your ISA.
An Individual Savings Account (ISA) is a tax-efficient way for UK consumers to save or invest. Each year, UK residents can save up to their annual allowance (£20,000 for 2018/19 and 2019/20) in ISA accounts. Earnings on these accounts are exempt from Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax.
There are currently four types of ISA: cash (FSCS protected), stocks and shares, innovative finance and lifetime (FSCS protected).
Savers and investors can fund one of each of these per year, so long as the total capital doesn't exceed their annual allowance. British Pearl offer an Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA).
When you invest with British Pearl, your capital is at risk. No FSCS on invested sums. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may change.

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 2019 to 5 April 2020.

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.
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 2019 to 5 April 2020. 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.
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.
You are currently only able to buy loans in the ISA.
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.
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.
