Investments

Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

The SEIS was initially introduced for a limited five year period from 1 April 2012, but has since been extended indefinitely, with the income tax and capital gains tax reliefs applying as shown below for all future years.

SEIS 2013/14 onwards
Rate of income tax relief 50%
Maximum investment qualifying for income tax relief £100,000
Gains exempt from CGT relief on investment in SEIS shares: 50%

Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs)

Investing in VCT shares gives the taxpayer 30% income tax relief on up to £200,000 invested per tax year, and the shares are generally exempt from capital gains tax when sold. However, to counter perceived abuse of the scheme, following changes were made from 6 April 2014:

  • tax relief is withdrawn if the shares are disposed of within five years;
  • the VCT will not be permitted to return capital to its members within three years of the shares being subscribed for; and
  • VCT investments that are linked to share buy-backs will be denied tax relief.
