JS. Tax Advisory


So, you’re setting up a new business? The next thing to consider is how you can raise funds. Or maybe you have a business but are looking to grow and need growth capital?

Whether you are looking for third-party investors or funding personally, how this is structured can be the difference between securing investment and not.

JS.Tax Advisory can advise on all the tax aspects of raising finance, including but not limited to:

Our experience tells us that investors like to save tax.

Did you know that an investment into your business could result in substantial tax benefits for your investors (EIS/SEIS/VCT)?  Don’t worry, because we do. If available, the reliefs can result in tax savings of up to 50% of the amount invested for the investor i.e., if they invest £100k, they could get £50k knocked off their tax bill.

There are also lots of other tax benefits with this type of fundraising, such as the potential for investors to avoid tax on a sale and to protect their Inheritance Tax position. All of which are real selling points when promoting the business for investment.

We can help you structure the investment to allow your investors to utilise these reliefs. We will liaise with HM Revenue & Customs on the business’s behalf to secure relief.  And with years of experience in doing so, we know exactly what they need to know.

JS.Tax Advisory is on hand to get the tax position on the investment right, therefore helping you secure the funds.

The temptation is to put the money in and think about this later. 

However, if structured correctly, cash that you put into your business could be available for tax-free draw-down in the future.

Perhaps it is Inheritance Tax you are concerned about? No problem, we consider the best ways to put the cash in to protect your Inheritance Tax position.

There are various options when supplying capital to your own business; we will consider your personal objectives, the potential future position, and make sure you choose the right one.
