Cash Isa's

£ £ £ - IMPORTANT JOTTING FROM JO - £ £ £ ….

We are coming to the end of this current tax year, which means we are coming to the end of YOUR chance of putting £3,000 of your hard earned money out of the reach of the tax man. So, if you haven't already taken advantage of this tax year's cash ISA then do so before the end of March or this opportunity will be lost forever when the tax year ends on 5 April.

It is worth considering Portman BS (www.portman.co.uk) for your £3,000 25-day notice ISA = annual interest 5.25% (which includes an introductory bonus) and Alliance & Leicester (www.alliance-leicester.co.uk) Direct Isa Issue 2 (min £1 dep) = annual interest 5.20% (which includes an introductory bonus).

PS If you do not have money available for ISAs, and you normally pay tax on savings you hold, it is worth considering transferring some of your savings into an ISA before 5 April and thus putting your savings beyond the reach of the tax man.

Don't feel guilty about being kind to yourself - take a holiday. You need to give yourself time to relax, and to engage in activities that you find rewarding. It is sensible, not self indulgent to look after your self in this way. Doing things you have to do all the time has a negative effect on your emotional health. As well as the fact that a holiday or trip can renew the strength required to carry on in the face of difficult circumstances.
