    Individual Savings Accounts (ISAs) often referred to as an investment wrapper, allows cash or other assets to be held in a tax-free environment. Introduced in 1999 to encourage individual investment, ISAs have since been the main vehicle for saving and investing tax efficiently.

    This study text looks at the main features and uses and main rules surrounding ISAs, including a review of the main features and types of ISAs, their tax treatment and the main uses of ISAs. It then moves on to the regulations that surround ISAs, how they are made, the role of HMRC in connection with the administration of ISA schemes and the obligations on firms in respect of anti-money laundering and the safekeeping of client assets.

    It considers eligibility conditions, the application process, rules surrounding what constitute acceptable investments within ISAs, how dealing takes place and how trades are cleared and settled. It looks at tax treatment of income, how corporate actions should be dealt with and the submission of tax claims and returns to HMRC.

    It views the rules involved in managing an ISA, including ISA manager obligations, investor reporting, the range of statistical returns ISA managers make to HMRC and how HMRC audits ISA managers to check their compliance with the rules.

    We consider the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) definition of a long term care insurance contract and the background to long term care provision in the UK. We look at the different types of long term care, the health authority responsibilities in the provision of continuing care and any resulting funding implications for the individual.

    We then look at how current legislation affects the provision of advice on long term care insurance, particularly with reference to the responsibilities of a local authority. We consider the availability of alternative sources of assistance and possible limitations on their use. We then deal with the complexities and implications of the relationship between the adviser, the client and third parties when advising on long term care insurance.

    Taxation issues related to long term care insurance plans and legal considerations that need to be taken into account when giving long term care advice to individuals and representatives are also covered.

    We look at eligibility to claim under a long term care insurance contract, the different costs associated with long term care provision and the factors that create variations in them. We also consider the interaction between the eligibility for means-tested and non means-tested benefits in the provision of advice on long term care insurance.

    We look at the suitability of arrangements available to fund and maintain long term care needs and whether the level of risk they present to the client is appropriate and acceptable. We then discuss situations that might indicate to an adviser that a client’s long term care provision needs to be reviewed and identify the consequences of that review.
