How much can be paid into a Junior ISA?

For the 2016/17 tax year, up to £4,080 can be paid into a Junior ISA – and there are no stipulations as to how this needs to be split between a stocks and shares Junior ISA and a cash Junior ISA.

The money can be paid in by relatives via the registered contact for Christmas, birthdays, or general gifts – as long as this limit is not breached. Funds cannot normally be withdrawn from a Junior ISA until the child reaches 18. See our Junior ISA page for more details.
