As a non taxpayer with savings in stocks and shares is it worth buying an ISA?

    Are you ever likely to be a taxpayer?

    Any income generated within the ISA will not go towards your income for tax purposes. WHilst you are not a tax payer now you may be in future (state pensions can often take people into tax payer position).

    Also, for fixed interest funds, the tax is reclaimed at source within an ISA so you dont have to claim it back for a tax return if held outside of an ISA.

    Thanks for that reply; a few years to go before the pension days but that has explained a few things!
