Why Now Is The Time To Invest: Venture Capital Trusts

Why Now Is The Time To Invest: Venture Capital Trusts | Webinar

There are many efficient tax relief schemes, but a standout scheme is Venture Capital Trusts (VCTs). VCTs invest in small or early-stage businesses that need investment in order to develop, potentially providing you with a higher return but with more risk. Because of this, VCTs offer several tax benefits, making them popular among higher and additional rate taxpayers. These are especially attractive for high earners who may be subject to pension tapering or those in receipt of large amounts of rental income and dividend income. In this webinar you will learn all about Venture Capital Trusts and how the tax benefits can give you the ability to build up a stream of tax free income.
