Tax Tip

Tax Planning Opportunity

As the tax year draws to a close, many of you will no doubt be considering tax planning opportunities. The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) may be one avenue worth exploring

SEIS is designed to encourage investment into early-stage businesses by offering investors an initial 50% tax relief against taxable income in the year of investment, irrespective of the investor’s marginal rate of tax.

Stuart Coleman, Manager of the Tax Department of ABDS comments:
“SEIS is suitable for any taxpayer, and particularly for those considering becoming a Business Angel, as it enables a choice of investment with generous tax reliefs available. A more formal SEIS Fund is now available for potential investors. However, there are other possibilities which we at ABDS can help you with such as

  • Business Premises Renovation Allowances (BPRA)
  • Trust Planning to reduce costs of University and School Fees
  • Income Tax mitigation
  • Mitigation of IHT on Property Portfolios
  • Mitigation of IHT
  • Corporation Tax reduction
  • Extraction of Corporate Profits and/or Reserves
  • Capital Gains Tax mitigation.”
