Capital Gains Tax Exemption: Investors are exempt from Capital Gains Tax realised on the disposal of EIS-qualifying shares, providing the shares were held for at least three years.
Inheritance Tax Relief: Under Business Property Relief, EIS shares which have been held for at least two years will qualify for Inheritance Tax Relief, providing the shares are in a ‘trading company’ and are still owned at the date of death. No upper limit is applied to the claimable amount of Inheritance Tax Relief.
Capital Gains Tax Deferral: When investors dispose of an asset and make a gain, CGT is typically payable on the gain for the tax year in which the disposal arose. Deferral relief allows investors to treat the gain as not arising until some time in the future – if you acquire EIS shares. To claim deferral relief the investor must invest an amount equal to the chargeable gain.
Loss Relief: If shares in an EIS company are disposed of at a loss, investors can offset this loss against capital tax or income tax (at their marginal rate).
The companies we focus on are often B2B and occupy future-focused industries, including SaaS, gaming, AI, life sciences and healthcare.
