The following Corporation Tax guidance note by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:
For the investor to qualify for any of the available enterprise investment scheme (EIS) tax reliefs, the investment must be in an EIS qualifying company. For more detail on the tax reliefs, see the Enterprise investment scheme tax relief guidance note.
The rules which determine whether a company is qualifying for EIS broadly cover:
ITA 2007, ss 172, 180
Note that a sunset clause for EIS income tax relief has been introduced. This ensures that income tax relief will no longer be given to subscriptions made on or after 6 April 2025, unless the legislation is renewed by Treasury Order.
Certain conditions must be met by the issuing company if it is to be a qualifying company for the purposes of EIS. Detail on all the conditions can be found in Simon’s Taxes, but a summary of the key points is provided below.
