Our EIS Guide section explains the full range of Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) tax relief available for investors, and how companies can use EIS to access growth capital.
Benefits for investors can include:
30% Income Tax relief | 0% Capital Gains Tax | 100% Inheritance Tax relief | Up to 45% loss relief
To qualify for EIS Relief, investors must be UK resident for tax purposes (or have UK tax liabilities) and subscribe cash for new shares in qualifying companies. Tax treatment is dependent on individual circumstances and may be subject to change. This content is written in general terms and you are strongly recommended to seek specific advice before taking any action based on the information it contains. No responsibility can be taken for any loss arising from action taken or refrained from on the basis of this content. It is also important to realise that investing in small companies always carries risks, including the loss of capital, illiquidity (the inability to sell assets quickly or without substantial loss in value), lack of dividends and share dilution. Investments should still be made as part of a diversified portfolio.
