Single company EIS

Single company EIS deals are private offers for experienced investors. 

They give you an opportunity to invest directly in a particular company you consider commercially compelling and able to deliver attractive returns, with the benefit of EIS tax relief. Please remember, tax rules can change and benefits depend on circumstances.

So, unlike with EIS funds where the asset manager makes the investment decisions on your behalf, you are in control, you decide which company to back. Get it right, and the reward could be considerable. 

But one cannot expect to get it right each time. You are investing in early-stage companies – inevitably some will fail. To help mitigate this, it might be wise to diversify and spread your EIS investments each year over a number of single companies.

How could you access single company deals? 

Thousands of EIS-qualifying companies raise funds. The latest figures show a record 3,920 businesses raised nearly £2 billion under EIS in just one year (2017/18). 

We aim to offer a selection of quality EIS opportunities you often wouldn't be able to get elsewhere. Each has been carefully assessed, either by Wealth Club or by reputable and established counterparties. To help you make your own informed decisions, we provide you with insight and comment on each offer. This is free to Wealth Club members. 

Important: all the EIS single company deals listed below aim to allot shares before 5 April 2020, so you should be able to use the tax relief in the 2019/20 tax year and/or carry back to the 2018/19 tax year. Tax rules can change and benefits depend on circumstances.
