What is the Innovative Finance ISA?
The Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) is a new type of tax efficient ISA wrapper for P2P lending products. The IFISA allows investors to lend through FCA-regulated Peer-to-Peer lending platforms without having to pay tax on interest earned.
5 Key Points on the IFISA:
- Tax-free interest and capital gains earned through the Peer-to-Peer lending market.
- Individual investment limits of £15,240 per tax year (2016/17) increasing to £20,000 (2017/18).
- Transfers between Stocks & Shares ISA, Cash ISA and Innovative Finance ISA are permitted (Note. Transfer fees may apply)
- Transfers of current loans outside of IFISA’s are not permitted.
- No fees charged to open an IFISA.

Risk Warning: Investing in or lending to early stage businesses involves a high level of risk, including illiquidity (inability to sell assets quickly or without substantial loss in value), lack of dividends, loss of capital and dilution risks and it should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change in the future. Your capital is at risk.
