Investing in early-stage businesses or venture capital trusts can offer significant tax advantages through schemes such as the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), and Venture Capital Trusts (VCT). We guide you through the complexities of these schemes and help to maximise the potential benefits.


We provide expert guidance on investing in EIS and SEIS eligible companies, outlining the tax reliefs available, and assisting in the process of claiming these reliefs.
EIS offers 30% income tax relief on the cost of the shares, with an annual investment limit of £1 million (or £2 million if investing in knowledge-intensive companies). Like SEIS, EIS also offers capital gains tax relief and loss relief.
SEIS offers extensive tax reliefs for investors, including 50% income tax relief on the cost of the shares, up to an annual investment limit of £100,000. Capital gains tax relief and loss relief are also available, thereby significantly reducing the financial risk for investors.
We offer tax advice on investing in VCTs, including understanding the associated tax benefits, potential risks, and compliance requirements.
We assist in preparing and submitting the necessary documents to HMRC to claim your EIS, SEIS or VCT tax reliefs.
