As of 2019, the JISA limit is £4,368 per year per kid under the age of 18. (Teens 16 and over can open their own cash ISAs.) Since in the vast majority of cases, the money does not belong to the person who opened the account, aka the parent or guardian, this £4,368 does not count towards an adult’s overall £20,000 per year ISA contribution limit.
