Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • Tax on savings

    Hi all, just want to clarify something...

    Im aware that we get taxed 20% on interest on any savings so im right in thinking that the amount of interest i get is 80% overall yes?

    Im trying to work out the better place to keep my savings since my ISA interest rate is 0.25% but my savings account (which will be taxed) is 0.5%.

    Hi Lexi As of April this year everyone will be able to earn up to 1000 in interest per year tax free. For the vast majority of people, this means no tax on interest at all.

    This means when you look at rates it will be a like for like comparison

    Hope this helps!

      Cool, thanks. I also just managed to renew my ISA so the interest on that is higher anyway, woohoo!
