5 Slide 4 Ingenious Background to the Venture Capital Initiatives EIS, VCTs and SEIS are Government sponsored initiatives designed to encourage investment in small, unquoted trading companies The aim of the schemes is to help close the “equity gap”, whereby small businesses often find it difficult to raise large amounts of capital The schemes offer investors a wide range of tax reliefs to help provide downside protection against what are often higher risk investments The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) was introduced in 1993 The Venture Capital Trust (VCT) was introduced in 1995 The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) was introduced in 2012

6 Slide 5 Ingenious Income Tax Relief Reduction in income tax liability amounting to 30% of the total investment up to a maximum of £1,000,000 Income tax relief on investments of up to £1,000,000 can also be carried back to the previous tax year (2012/13) Relief cannot exceed an amount which reduces the investor’s income tax liability to nil CGT Disposal Relief Any gain on the disposal of EIS shares after three years and on for which EIS income tax relief has been given and not withdrawn, will be exempt from CGT CGT Deferral Relief To the extent to which a UK resident investor generates a chargeable gain, he/she can claim to defer paying CGT on all or part of that chargeable gain by investing in qualifying EIS shares No limit on the amount of chargeable gains which may be deferred in this way Applies to any chargeable gains arising three calendar years prior to the qualifying EIS investment or one year after the issue of qualifying EIS shares Gains are deferred until there is a chargeable event such as a disposal of the EIS shares or an earlier breach of the EIS rules The tax reliefs associated with EIS?

7 Slide 6 Ingenious Inheritance Tax Relief EIS shares should constitute “relevant business property” for inheritance tax purposes Once shares have been held for a period of two years, they should qualify for 100% business property relief (BPR) and will fall outside the investor’s estate Loss Relief Tax relief is available for any loss realised on the disposal of qualifying shares on which EIS income tax relief has been obtained The loss (net of any income tax relief initially obtained) may be set against the individuals taxable income arising in the tax year in which the disposal occurs, or the previous tax year Alternatively, the loss may be offset against capital gains in the tax year of disposal Any excess losses may be carried forward for relief against future capital gains The tax reliefs associated with EIS

8 Slide 7 Ingenious The Enterprise Investment Scheme – Summary of Rules The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is a Government incentive to help smaller entrepreneurial trading companies raise  The company must have fewer than 250 employees  The maximum annual amount that can be invested in a single company is £5m  The annual amount that an individual can invest is £1m  The Gross assets of the company must not exceed £15m immediately before any share issue and £16m immediately after that issue

9 Slide 8 Ingenious The tax reliefs associated with VCT Income Tax Relief Reduction in income tax liability amounting to 30% of the total investment up to a maximum of £200,000 in any tax year Applies to new ordinary shares only No carry-back facility Relief cannot exceed an amount which reduces the investors income tax liability to nil Dividend Relief VCT dividends are exempt from income tax Applies to both new and second-hand shares VCT distributions can be paid from capital CGT Disposal Relief Any gain on the disposal of VCT shares after five years and on which VCT income tax relief has been given and not withdrawn, will be exempt from CGT

10 Slide 9 Ingenious Administration EIS – note EIS 3 Companies that are hoping to raise funds under EIS are encouraged to seek advance assurance from HMRC, prior to inviting applications for shares Although the procedure is not statutory, HMRC is usually bound by an assurance given, provided that the information supplied was correct and complete at the time it was given and the circumstances remain the same as those described in the advance assurance applications. Once the company has been trading for four months, an EIS1 form is submitted to HMRC, providing details of the investors and the shares issued HMRC will then authorise the company on a form EIS2, to issue certificates (on form EIS3) to the investors HMRC will send the company a number of blank forms EIS3 “EIS Certificates” – which the company then completes and provides to the investors Investors can then claim tax relief via their tax return or a stand alone claim VCT Companies must apply to HMRC for VCT approval In practice, VCTs issue income tax relief certificates as a matter of routine along with share certificates Investors can claim tax relief via their tax return or a stand alone claim Investors who receive exempt dividends are not required to show them on their tax returns

11 Slide 10 Ingenious Example EIS Timetable Note: This timetable is indicative only; the timing of receipt of EIS 3 certificates will vary for each EIS company depending on time required to allot shares and the production timetable for the company’s first programme Submit application and Investment Months Shares allotted Commencement of EIS trade (start of production on 1 st TV show) Ingenious applies to HMRC for your EIS3 certificate (4 months after commencement of trade) Receive EIS3 certificate Either claim 30% income tax relief on tax return or through adjustment to PAYE coding Every year you will receive: 1.Annual Report & Financial Statements 2.Production update 3.Notice of AGM

12 Slide 11 Ingenious Why invest in an EIS or VCT? They are a viable alternative investment in a climate of low interest rates, equity volatility, concerns about inflation, and a reduction in tax relief for pensions, many advisers are now considering the relative advantages of EIS or VCT investments for their clients. 1.Income Tax relief 2.Capital Gains Tax deferral 3.Inheritance Tax Planning 4.Rolling EIS Investment programme 5.UK resident, Non Domiciled Individuals

13 Slide 12 Ingenious Invest £100,000 Claim income tax credit of £30,000 (i.e. 30% of £100,000) Tax bill reduced from £67,098 to £37,098 Case study - 45 year old executive, £180,000 income, with an element of liquidity and looking for medium term returns with a desire to broaden his range of alternative investments £32,010 taxed at 20% £117,990 taxed at 40% £30,000 taxed at 45% £13,500 £47,196 £6,402 Taxable Income = £180,000 Tax Payable = £67,098 Note: Personal Allowance irrelevant at this level of income 1. Income Tax Relief

14 Slide 13 Ingenious 2. Capital Gains Tax Deferral Case study - 78 year old client has made a capital gain of £100,000 in the 2011/12 tax year. He has already paid his CGT bill of £28,000 in January So why Invest in an EIS? It is a viable alternative investment in a climate of low interest rates and equity volatility By making an EIS investment in the 2013/14 tax year of £100,000 the client can elect to defer the 2011/12 gain The £28,000 CGT that he has already paid is refunded by HMRC. The gain is deferred until the EIS shares are subsequently disposed of BUT in the event of death whilst holding the EIS shares, the gain will never come into charge. Result: The client has enjoyed a £30,000 income tax credit in 2013/14 He has deferred a capital gain of £100,000 and received £28,000 back from HMRC

15 Slide 14 Ingenious £250,000£350,000£100,000 Purchased property in 2000 Sold property in 2011/12 Capital Gain £28,000 Paid Capital Gains Tax (CGT) £100,000 Invest in EIS 2012/13 £28,000 CGT Credit Deferred for the life of EIS 2. Capital Gains Tax Deferral

16 Slide 15 Ingenious 3. Inheritance Tax Planning Business Property Relief EIS investments qualify for Business Property Relief (BPR) after two years and will therefore be considered outside of the estate for Inheritance Tax (IHT) purposes. Replacement Business Property Clients selling an asset which already qualifies for BPR, may be able to benefit from BPR immediately on making an EIS investment However: While EIS investments are a viable alternative investment when considering estate planning for a particular client, it is worth noting that the shares allotted are illiquid and will be tied up in the EIS until such time that the EIS companies look to return the capital to its shareholders. If this is a concern to a client, then there are stand alone BPR qualifying investments, which don’t share the same advantages as an EIS with regards to tax reliefs, but they do allow an estate to liquidate assets in a more timely fashion than an EIS

17 Slide 16 Ingenious 4. Rolling EIS Investments £100,000 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 £100,000 Year 4 £100,000 Year 5 £100,000 Year 6 Use the 30% tax credit for cashflow purposes e.g. school fees Year 5 you can use the capital returned from Year 1 investment to make a further EIS investment and gain another 30% tax credit. £30,000 EIS Investment 30% Tax Credit

18 Slide 17 Ingenious 5. UK Resident, Non Domiciled Individuals Often, monies held offshore by non-domiciled individuals will be generating very little return. The individual cannot bring the money onshore to spend in the UK, as this would give rise to an immediate 45% tax charge (assuming they are an additional rate tax payer). Legislation introduced in the Finance Act 2012 states that post 6 April 2012, if a non-domiciled, UK resident individual who are taxed on the remittance basis, remits offshore monies to the UK and makes (within 45 days) a “qualifying investment” (which includes an investment in an EIS qualifying company), not only will such income not be treated as remitted to the UK, but it could also generate a 30% income tax credit to offset against the individual’s UK tax liabilities. In the event that the individual disposes of their investment following the minimum 3 year period, the individual may either: Reinvest the monies within 45 days Send the money back offshore within 45 days (any profit can remain onshore without triggering a taxable remittance) Keep the money onshore, paying the prevailing rate of tax on the sums originally remitted
