FT: Tax-Efficient Investment Seminar
Thursday Oct 2nd saw a packed room at the FT head-office for its latest tax-efficient Investment seminar for advisers. The morning was focussed on VCTs, IHT and EIS products which form the core of the UK Governments "approved" schemes encouraging investment into high-growth and innovative smaller companies.
Amati fund manager and CEO Paul Jourdan used his presentation slot to ask investors to consider the merits of their tax-incentivised investments and to ensure that they really were in the spirit of the rules supporting high-growth firms and entrepreneurs looking for capital.
Clearly a successful day and evidence of the demand for tax-efficient investment schemes which have strong support from HMRC.
