Skipton introduces registration form ahead of Lisa roll out

Skipton Building Society has introduced a form on its website to allow customers to register their interest in the Lifetime ISA before it rolls out the product in June.

In March, Skipton was the first high street lender to confirm that it would offer the cash version of the Lisa, which allows people aged between 18 and 39 to save up to £4,000 a year tax-free, plus a 25 per cent Government bonus to save for retirement or to purchase a first home.

No other lender has since come forward to say they will offer the product, which was officially launched to market in early April this year.
