There are Significant Tax Benefits When Investing into a KI Fund*:

  • Investing in a Knowledge-intensive EIS fund provides greater predictability for your tax planning.
  • If you invest in a KI approved EIS fund, the investment date for income tax purposes is the date the fund closes. In other words, you know at the point of investment that you should be able to use the income tax relief in the tax year in which you invest or carry back to the previous tax year – effectively getting back tax you’ve already paid.
  • In addition, investors can claim tax relief on up to £2m per annum, if at least £1m of this is invested in the knowledge intensive companies.
  • Simplified paperwork, you receive a single EIS5 Certificate for your investment rather than the typical 10–15 separate EIS3 certificates.
