2023/24 Tax Year End - EIS Opportunities


As we rapidly approach tax year end and with clients having recently submitted their self-assessment tax returns, financial adviser’s attention will be drawn to tax planning and mitigating tax relating to both the 2023/24 and 2022/23 tax years.

The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) continues to be one of the most tax-advantaged schemes and is a core Government tool for encouraging investment in growth-focused companies.

Both the Deepbridge Technology Growth EIS and Deepbridge Life Sciences EIS funds continue to deploy capital on a monthly basis, which provides you and your clients with the opportunity to have capital actively working in the quickest time possible (based on our market research of the EIS market). 

IMPORTANT: If your client is seeking to offset income tax relating to the 2022/23 tax year, then they need to have funds deployed in the 2023/24 tax year in order to utilise carry-back relief. Please note that deployment in the 2023/24 tax year is subject to the closing date of 28th March 2024 for receipt of fully completed applications and cleared funds.

Don't forget: electronic application forms can be requested via the Deepbridge website here.
