Income Tax: amendments to tax-advantaged venture capital schemes

This tax information and impact note affects companies and individual investors using the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Venture Capital Trust scheme (VCT), SEIS and EIS fund managers and VCTs.



This measure offers tax incentives to encourage private investment into those small and growing companies which would otherwise struggle to access finance. At the same time, the schemes will be well-targeted and in line with state aid rules.
