Following recent changes in government legislation, future ISA limits are now tied to the Retail Prices Index (RPI).

Future ISA allowances will be set by referring to the official RPI figures released each September with any increase applying to the ISA allowance for the following tax year. In the event of a negative RPI the ISA allowance for the following year will remain unchanged.

The RPI for September 2010 was 4.6% which means for 2011/2012  the overall  ISA limit has increased by £480. The Cash ISA allowance has increased by £240.
