EIS Investments

When you invest in young, small companies that qualify for the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) you could generate significant returns if the company prospers. 

But that’s far from certain. Investing in this kind of business is risky and many will fail. Therefore, to encourage investment and to temper some of the risk, the government offers generous EIS tax reliefs

  • Save up to 30% on your income tax bill – up to £300,000 per year (or £600,000 when investing in knowledge-intensive companies)
  • Very generous allowance – up to £1 million (or £2 million if anything above £1 million is invested in knowledge-intensive companies)
  • Enjoy tax-free growth
  • Defer capital gains from other investments – potentially indefinitely
  • Offset any future losses against your income, so you save income tax
  • Pass on your investment free of IHT 

Remember, tax rules can change and tax benefits depend on circumstances.
