I am new to Stock and Share ISA investing. I am planning to make use of the New ISA limit of £15000 from this year. I am aware that the profit or loss made out of Share ISA is tax free.

Does this mean that even as a higher rate tax payer, if I make a profit out of share ISA of around 30K in any year on selling my ISA portfolio, would it be completely tax free of Capital Gains Tax or would I need to pay the CGT limit (£11000) minus the profit obtained on selling my portfolio.

Assets held within an ISA or New ISA are completely free of CGT, so you won't have to pay either income tax or capital gains tax.

  • Isa investors can not claim back the 10pc tax credit on dividends so you do pay a small amount of tax
