What is a General Investment Account?

  • It’s a simple way to hold your investments outside of tax wrappers such as pensions and ISAs.
  • The Moneybox General Investment Account lets you invest in thousands of global companies via a range of tracker funds, including a socially responsible option.
  • The General Investment Account doesn’t offer tax relief but you only pay tax on gains above £12,300, subject to having no other investments.
Why Invest?

What else should I know?

  • You can contribute as little as £1.
  • Moneybox limits deposits into the GIA to £20,000 a week.
  • You must be 18 years or over and a resident in the UK (and not a US citizen).
  • Remember, the value of your investments can go up and down, and you may get back less than you invest.
