Creative UK (formerly Creative England) was launched in October 2011 as a government initiative and is now an independent company that invests in creative talent and businesses. Via the Fund, Creative UK seeks to assist Sapphire Capital Partners LLP to unlock the power of the creative economy by investing in early-stage creative and digital businesses. It will also help the businesses grow by providing mentoring and support.
  • Creative UK has been supporting and investing in creative and digital businesses for nearly five years, investing over circa £22m of public funds into digital, film, video games, TV and creative content companies and projects
  • Creative UK currently provides full “wrap around” support to the companies they have invested in - offering information, advocacy, inspiration and access to networks and high-profile marketing opportunities so that talented people and businesses can thrive and commercialise.
  • Creative UK seeks to build tough and transparent relationships with the businesses they have invested in, identifying what they are good at, and what they need help with.
SEIS & EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invest in are expected to be SEIS-EIS-qualifying, which makes Creative England Investment Fund SEIS-EIS suitable for qualifying clients who would potentially benefit from the following tax reliefs:
  • Up to 30% income tax relief (50% for SEIS)
  • Tax-free Investment growth
  • Capital gains deferral (50% capital gains tax exemption for SEIS)
  • Inheritance Tax relief
  • Loss relief
Please note: SEIS-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. See guides for further information.

Risk warning
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.
Investments made in investee companies via funds managed by Sapphire Capital Partners LLP may not be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). For more details, please contact us or refer to their website: https://www.fscs.org.uk
