ABSTRACT
Up to six million children will be able to enjoy similar tax breaks to their parents when a new savings account is launched this autumn. The Junior Isa, or Jisa, will allow under-18s to have up to £3,000 a tax year saved on their behalf, perhaps building up to help with college fees or a house deposit. In essence, the Jisa will be a miniversion of the conventional adult account. It is being introduced after the Government pulled the plug on Labour's Child Trust Funds.
