This season, opportunities to capitalise on Venture Capital Trust and Enterprise Investment Schemes
will be toughly contested. A forecast of fewer offer launches and restrictions on fundraising mean
slim pickings are likely.
In the meantime, competition for such opportunities grows as HMRC reduce pension payouts for those
with a total taxable income over £150,000 coupled with caps on the lifetime investment into pensions set at £1m, these factors combined with the ageing population has seen demand for VCT and EIS offers driven higher than ever before.
