The EIIS is one of the few remaining sources of total income relief, allowing you to obtain income tax relief on investments in qualifying SMEs. An individual with a taxable income liability in the year the EIIS investment is made can obtain tax relief for the following:
1. PAYE earnings
2. Rental income from property held in a personal capacity
3. ARF distribution income
Tax relief is available in two tranches: an initial 30% in year 1 with a further 10% when additional criteria are met in year 4.
