Child Trust Fund Top Up

It’s easy to top up your child’s Trust Fund (CTF) and you can now pay in up to £9,000 tax free each year (birthday to birthday).

You can set up a regular monthly top up from £5 per month, or make a one-off lump sum payment of £50 or more. Please note the money must come from a UK bank account.

The maximum amount of combined contributions (lump sum and monthly payments) paid into a Child Trust Fund account for the current tax year cannot exceed the annual limit of £9,000.

If you are unsure of the remaining amount which can be paid in for the rest of this tax year, please call us on 0800 988 2418 and we will provide further information.
