Consultation description

This draft legislation amending the Individual Savings Account (ISA) Regulations to establish Lifetime ISA, includes rules in relation to the government bonus payable on Lifetime ISA savings and withdrawals from accounts.

This technical consultation will be of interest to ISA investors, potential providers of Lifetime ISA, and conveyancers acting for individuals purchasing their first home.

The draft regulations will also increase the overall ISA limit from £15,240 to £20,000 from 6 April 2017.
