Open a Crowdstacker P2P account today and you could start benefiting from tax free interest with the new Personal Savings Allowance (PSA).

What is the Personal Savings Allowance?

The Government has introduced a great new way for the vast majority of British adults to grow their savings each year (including bonds, loan notes and peer to peer loans) without paying tax on up to £1,000 of interest per tax year.

It is called the Personal Savings Allowance (PSA).

Eligible investors can earn up to £1,000 interest on their savings each tax year without paying tax. Previously this was taxed at an individual’s marginal income tax rate.

Like income tax, the Personal Savings Allowance depends on your income bracket:

If you are a basic rate tax payer (i.e. your annual income is less than £43,000) you can earn up to £1,000 interest on savings tax free per tax year.

If you are a higher rate tax payer (i.e. your annual income is between £43,001 and £150,000) you can earn up to £500 interest on savings tax-free per tax year.

If you are an additional rate tax payer (i.e. you earn over £150,000 per year) unfortunately you do not qualify for a Personal Savings Allowance.

Crowdstacker's Peer to Peer investments are eligible for inclusion in the Personal Savings Allowance. Simply open a Crowdstacker P2P Account today and start lending to British businesses through the platform. Up to a £1,000 of your interest earned is eligible to be tax-free with the PSA (subject to any other savings or PSA qualifying investments you may have and your tax status). Your capital is at risk if you lend to businesses.
