From October 6 new regulations came into effect relating to annual ISA allowances.

From October 6 new regulations came into effect relating to annual ISA allowances.

ISA allowances were increased for all customers who were born on or before 5th April 1960 (i.e. who will be aged 50 or over during the current tax year).

The overall allowance for these customers is now £10,200, of which up to £5,100 can be put in to a cash ISA.

Britannia offers a cash ISA with Tottenham Hotspur, which means that savers who will be aged 50 or over in the current tax year can now top up their accounts.

So, if you've got a Cash ISA and want to top-up £1,500, why not do it today and benefit from even more tax free savings?

How do I top up?
· Branch
- Visit your local branch, remembering to bring your passbook! · By post - You can post a cheque payable to yourself as the Account Holder to: Britannia, FREEPOST (15796), Dept CO33, Leek, Staffordshire Moorlands, ST13 5RG. Please ensure you put your existing ISA account number on the back of the cheque.

If you've not opened an ISA in this tax year, now is an ideal time to do so. Fans wanting further information about Britannia's savings products in partnership with Tottenham Hotspur should visit any of Britannia's 245 branches or CLICK HERE.
