Additional Permitted Subscriptions (APS)

A change to how ISAs are treated on the death of an individual

“This is a positive change to the rules, but once the allowance is received, the complicated area for many will be working out how best to use the APS”

Introduced in 2015, this is a one-off additional ISA allowance equivalent to the value of a deceased spouse or civil partner's ISA.

This change means that a surviving spouse now has a much fairer set of rules in place - but it can be a challenge to work out the best place to put the money.

In this factsheet, Savings Champion explains how the APS works and provides some useful first steps to help you make the most of this allowance.
