Better Ventures EIS gives investors the opportunity to own a portfolio of EIS qualifying companies with high growth potential. The fund targets early-stage companies operating across a range of different sectors, from lifestyle and wellness to media and fintech, where the fund can make the biggest impact and deliver the greatest returns for investors.

Delivering rewards through venture building

Vala Capital use its financial and intellectual resources to develop and back new businesses and talented leadership teams. It's Vala's job to ensure they navigate the challenges every business must face, so to help them create value and deliver outstanding returns for investors.

EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invest in are expected to be EIS-qualifying, which makes British Ventures EIS suitable for qualifying clients who would potentially benefit from the following tax reliefs:
  • Up to 30% income tax relief
  • Tax-free investment growth
  • Capital gains deferral
  • Inheritance tax relief
  • Loss relief
Please note: EIS tax reliefs are only made available to investors because of the higher risks associated with investing in early-stage companies. Also, the availability of tax reliefs will depend on the investor's personal circumstances, and tax legislation can change in the future.

Important information for private investors – Reliance on the information provided here to engage in any investment activity may expose an individual to a significant risk of losing all of the property or other assets invested. Your attention is drawn to the risk section contained within the Information Memorandum. Investments are typically in unquoted shares in small companies, the value of which can be volatile and are often difficult to sell. Nothing on this website constitutes investment, tax, financial, legal, regulatory, or other advice by Sapphire Capital Partners LLP.
The value of an investment may go down as well as up, and you may not get back the full amount invested, and you may therefore lose some or all of your investment.
If you are unsure of the suitability of any investment for your circumstances, please contact your independent financial advisor or other professional advisor authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) who specialises in advising on investments of this type. Tax reliefs depend on individual circumstances. There is no guarantee however that the tax reliefs (such as SEIS and/or EIS reliefs, CGT reliefs or IHT relief) will be available on any investment made or that if it is initially available, it will not be subsequently withdrawn. Any references to tax laws or rates are based on current legislation, all of which are subject to change and are provided as a guide only. Prospective investors are advised to obtain their own investment and taxation advice and should consult their own professional advisors on the implications of investing.
