Balance and ISA allowance
You can make deposits into your account up until 09th March 2018. You must deposit at least £1,000 (the “Minimum deposit”) by this date. There is no Maximum deposit and no maximum balance; however, there is a limit on the amount you can pay into your account each tax year (“ISA allowance”). This limit is set by the Government and may change from time to time. For tax year 2017/2018 it is £20,000.
If you pay in more than the limit any excess money will be returned to you.
If you make a payment into your Fixed Rate ISA you will not be able to make any further payments for that tax year into any other cash ISA except for a NatWest Help to Buy: ISA.

You can make payments to Help to Buy: ISA in the same tax year as a NatWest Fixed Rate ISA provided that:
the Help to Buy: ISA is held with us;
you don't pay in more than the ISA allowance between the Fixed Rate ISA and the Help to Buy: ISA.
