Enterprise Investment Scheme

EIS Capital Limited proudly offers investment opportunities that fall under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (“EIS”). Investing in small enterprises that fall under EIS presents you with the opportunity both to invest in a potential rising star and benefit from significant tax rewards.

It has been projected that taxpayers that fall under the top 10% will be responsible for 58.5% of total income tax for the tax year 2016/17. This group holds the burden of more tax to pay with fewer tax shelters available. EIS investments are an exception.

EIS was introduced in 1993. Since it’s inception, more than 24,600 companies have received over £14 billion. In 2014/15 EIS had the highest investment ever, with investors raising £1.66 billion to support 3,130 early-stage companies, resulting in investors collectively being eligible to receive up to £498.6 million in initial income tax relief alone.

Under EIS, you can:

  • Receive up to 30% income tax relief for your investment – (up to £300,000 per year)
  • Defer capital gains liability
  • Be exempt from Inheritance Tax liability on the asset

Under Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (“SEIS”), you can:

  • Receive up to 50% income tax relief for your investment – (up to £300,000 per year)
  • Defer capital gains liability
  • Be exempt from Inheritance Tax liability on the asset

EIS investments are only available to UK residents who are able to self-certify as Sophisticated Investors or High Net Worth Individuals before investing. EIS investments are high risk in comparison to conventional investments and are not for everyone. Before you invest, make sure you fully understand the Information Memorandum (“IM”) and other documents in the Offering Package. Professional advice from a certified Independent Financial Adviser should be taken.
