New Cash ISA and mortgage videos from Barclays
To mark the beginning of the 2011 ISA season, Barclays has produced a short video about cash ISAs and investment ISAs.**
As the ISA allowance increases in April for the 2011/12 tax year^, customers are encouraged to take note to ensure they can maximise their ISAs.
Barclays has also produced a video about mortgages to help de-mystify the market, simplifying the basics that customers need to know. The short video includes a “jargon buster” to help customers sort their LTVs from their APRs and enable them to make a fully informed decision when deciding what type of mortgage is right for them.
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
**As your money is invested in the stock market, the value of your investment and any income they produce can go down as well as up, so you could get back less than you invested. The tax treatment of ISAs depends on your circumstances and could change in the future.
^The value of tax relief depends on individual circumstances. Annual limits are subject to review. The Government's favourable tax treatment of ISAs may not be maintained.
