Horror Film Investment with the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)

The Purge   The Devil Inside Horror Movie  
Paranormal Activity
A Selection of American Horror Films which broke the Box Office

The Enterprise Investment scheme (EIS) was first introduced in 1994 by the UK government to encourage equity investment in private companies. The idea is that through the offer of generous tax relief's an EIS encourages and supports investors to invest in companies that qualify for the scheme.

The EIS/SEIS have experienced cumulative capital inflows for the amount of 9.7B GBP (1B GBP was raised in 2012 alone), allowing a total of 20,275 UK-based start-ups to raise funds via this process. The average year-over-year growth of capital inflows into EIS investments during the economic downturn (2007-2012) was a solid +12.8%.

Depending on how much income you earn, up to 70% can be protected. As long as you have a UK tax liability you are eligible for the tax benefits offered through the EIS.


Tax Breaks Q & A

Q. Is there a tax advantage for me to invest in this film?
A. Yes. There are significant tax advantages that can be obtained by individuals making EIS investments. These include unlimited Capital Gains Tax deferral, Income Tax Relief at 30%, protection from Inheritance Tax, Loss Relief and zero tax on all profits (no CGT to pay on gains). Please see pages 32-34 for more detailed information
and examples.

Q. How do I claim these tax advantages?
A. Submit your tax return as normal stating your investment in the EIS company. Include a copy of the share certificate and the EIS3 certificate we provide for you. It is that simple.

Q. If the film project returns are lower than predicted, what would happen?
A. The EIS loss relief advantages effectively limit your downside to 56% (as a 20% tax payer), 42% (as a 40% taxpayer) or 38.5% (as a 45% tax payer) of your original investment at current rates.
