How does an ISA work for Expat's
Build Up Your ISA
A UK tax resident can saving £15240 per year into an ISA.
This can be invested in bank deposits, national savings, shares, funds, corporate or government bonds. They can also be used for life or sickness insurance and pay out tax free sums to beneficiaries.
Hold On to your ISAs
The investments grow free of income and capital gains taxes. Withdrawals can be made at any time penalty free.
When you leave the UK and pay tax overseas you can keep the ISA but not add any new capital to it; unless and until you return to the UK as a tax resident.
Hold onto your ISA for Tax Free Savings
Transferring ISA's becomes more complicated, because an ISA provider can have its own conditions that limits their suitability to you. But in theory you can transfer your ISA to another at any time for access to more appropriate savings options for you. Holding funds that grow in value, rather than pay interest can often lead to big tax savings, up to 30% for Cyprus tax residents.
