Transfer LISA

Not only do you not pay any tax on the interest you earn, you also earn a 25% government bonus on everything you deposit between the ages of 18 to 50.

That means you can earn interest on the savings you deposit, as well as the 25% government bonus. All whilst paying no tax on it, so keeping more of your earnings for the big things in life.

To apply for a LISA you need to be a UK resident aged 18 to 39. However, you can continue to top up your savings every tax year until the age of 50 and still receive the government bonus.

So, if you max out your LISA each year between the ages of 18 and 50, you could earn up to £32,000 from the government bonus alone.
