Hi. My name is*****'m looking at your question now and will post my answer or ask for more information here in a short while.

Expert:  TonyTax replied 1 year ago.

Can you rephrase your question please. I'm not entirely sure what you are getting at.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If Year 1 I put £15K in ISA share but didn't produce a Capital gain, Year 2 I put in another £15k in Isa share. These total £30K then returned a say, £2K profit. Is the entire £2K tax free?
Expert:  TonyTax replied 1 year ago.

Any gains you make on shares held in an ISA are completely tax free regardless of the level of the gain. Income earned in an ISA, eg dividends, is also tax free.

I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.

In my question, I also asked about if ISA investment is accumulative. Can you confirm?
Expert:  TonyTax replied 1 year ago.

If you put £10K into an ISA in one tax year, you cannot carry forward the unused £5K to the next tax year.

Expert:  TonyTax replied 1 year ago.

You are limited to £15K investment per tax year. The gains you make aren't part of the £15K allowance.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately this is not the question I asked. Can you please read my original question? If I invest £15K in Year 1, another £15K in Year 2. The capital gain on the accumulative £30K is taxx-free?
Expert:  TonyTax replied 1 year ago.

I did answer the question. All gains and all income made inside an ISA are tax free. That's the whole point of an ISA. Look here for confirmation.
