Venture Capital Schemes


This title offers a clear explanation of the four types of venture capital relief (listed below). In each case, the author looks at the range of tax incentives offered by the legislation, including (as appropriate) income tax reliefs, CGT exemptions, CGT deferrals, and relief for losses incurred.

In relation to each scheme, the conditions for relief are examined in detail and are illustrated with helpful examples. Complicating factors are addressed as required, for example where an individual is connected in some way with the company or where tax relief has to be clawed back because the company ceases to meet the qualifying conditions.

"A comprehensive guide to the tax rules for the four venture capital schemes. ... I would certainly recommend it." TAXline
