The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time and are dependent on individual circumstances.

**Please note that VCTs and EISs are suitable only for experienced, sophisitcated or high net worth investors who accept that they may get back significantly less than the original investment.

-These represent a much higher risk than investing in larger well established listed companies listed on the FTSE All Share Index and are inherently more illiquid.

-The legislation surrounding VCTs and EISs and as a result their tax treatment, are subject to individual circumstances, may change in the future and could apply retrospectively.

  • Approved solutions to reducing the 50% tax liability
  • Ability to recruit a wider range of peopleMotivated key executives
