Whilst you should bear in mind that the levels and bases of taxation may change, ISAs are a good way of holding your shares because they come with a distinct tax advantage. Although income received has already had income tax deducted at the standard rate, any gains made on the value of your shares will be free of Capital Gains Tax when you come to sell them. Please click here to find out the annual tax free ISA allowance via the HMRC website.

ISAs may not be suitable for every investor and you should remember that the prices, values and income of stock market investments can go down as well as up; you may get back less than your initial investment. Of course, if in doubt, you should always seek independent financial advice first.

If you decide to transfer your J Sainsbury plc shares to an ISA you may wish to contact the following provider, although others are available and you are recommended to do your own research before applying.
