Earn up to 50% tax relief on
your investments

There are two key, and very generous, tax breaks to look out for when it comes to investing on Crowdcube. Both of which can be carried back to the previous tax year.

Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

Investors, including directors, can receive initial tax relief of 50% on investments up to £100,000 and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) exemption for any gains on the SEIS shares.

Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)

Investors can invest up to £1,000,000 in any tax year and receive 30% tax relief on their investment.

Look out for the EIS and SEIS tags eligible investment opportunities.

*The availability of any tax relief, including SEIS and EIS, depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and the company concerned and therefore may be subject to change in the future.
