An EIS portfolio lets experienced investors invest in early-stage companies with high growth potential. It can also offer several tax reliefs that are useful in planning, such as capital gains tax deferral. Watch our webinar to find out more about EIS and the Octopus Ventures EIS Service.

You'll learn

  • Why smaller company investing is so exciting right now.
  • What an EIS is, and the types of clients that could benefit.
  • The tax reliefs available including income tax relief, tax-free capital gains and loss relief.
  • How the Octopus Ventures EIS Service works.

You’ll also hear about some recent exciting investments we’ve made for the Service. These include iSize, a company which has created technology that makes streaming quicker, cheaper and more environmentally friendly.

Risks to bear in mind 

  • The value of an investment in the Octopus Ventures EIS Service, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the full amount invested.
  • The shares of smaller companies could fall or rise in value more than other shares listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. They may also be harder to sell.
  • Tax reliefs available on EIS investments depend on individual circumstances. Tax treatment is assumed as per current legislation and interpretation, which may change in the future.
  • Tax reliefs also depend on the portfolio companies maintaining their EIS-qualifying status.
