More than 1.1m Help to Buy: ISA accounts have been opened since the start of the scheme.

On 26 April the latest Help to Buy: ISA quarterly statistics will be published and unfortunately we cannot pre-empt that release. However the most recent set, published on 11 January 2018 and covering the period to September 2017, showed that since the start of the Help to Buy: ISA scheme, 143,894 bonuses had been paid out.
