IF-ISA, beginner's guide to earning £1m Interest Tax-free!

What is an ISA?​

ISA is an Individual Saving Account with TAX-FREE benefits on your earnings.

How many types of ISA's are there?​

There are four types of Individual Savings Accounts (ISA):

  1. Cash ISA;
  2. Stocks and shares ISA;
  3. Innovative Finance ISA (IF-ISA); and
  4. Lifetime ISA

You can put money into one of each kind of ISA each tax year.

Who can open an ISA?

You must be:

16 or over for a cash ISA
18 or over for a stocks and shares or Innovative Finance ISA
18 or over but under 40 for a Lifetime ISA

You must also be either:
• resident in the UK
• a Crown servant (for example diplomatic or overseas civil service) or their spouse or civil partner if you do not live in the UK
You cannot hold an ISA with or on behalf of someone else.

How does an IF-ISA work?

An innovative finance ISA lets you use your tax-free ISA allowance while investing in peer to peer (P2P) lending.

Peer to peer lending is a form of investing where you directly lend money to borrowers and businesses. The borrowers then pay back the borrowed amount, with interest on top. The interest they pay is the return you get on your investment. You earn this interest tax-free.
Investors (IF-ISA holders) are linked with borrowers. A borrower could be a business, an individual or a property developer.

So, with an Innovative Finance ISA, your IF-ISA account contains P2P loans. With a cash ISA, it has cash, and with stocks and shares, it includes stocks and shares.

Kuflink's £1m Tax-Free Interest Model

We would like to share the following model to show you how to earn over a £1m in Interest, Tax-free.  

Our Accountants, Compliance and Tech teams were brainstorming in the boardroom and discovered a way to make over £1m net Tax-free interest using the Kuflink IF-ISA model*. Being Tax-Free, this boosts your returns by compounding the tax-free earnings that you can then watch grow exponentially over time. Kuflink's IF-ISA fits this model.

Consider the following to earn £1M TAX-FREE from Kuflink's 5 Year IF-ISA at 7%*. (The concept works on smaller amounts as the percentage return is the same).
