 Fuel Ventures EIS   Portfolio 1 

Investing in fast-growing technology businesses.

At a glance
  • Current status:                   Closed (Sep-2015)
  • Fund type:                                                        EIS
  • Investment goal:                     Capital growth
  • Focus:         SaaS, marketplaces, platforms
The core focus of the Portfolio is in investing in companies that operate within the e-commerce sector. This is broadly defined as including any consumer-facing business where there is a clear transaction/purchase that is conducted via the internet and companies that sell to and support the operations of e-commerce companies. In line with this focus, the Portfolio will seek to:
  • Create: to build companies that create products and services people want and need.
  • Invest: to invest in some of Europe’s most exciting early-stage game-changing companies in the e-commerce sector.
  • Grow: to help grow and rapidly scale companies with great potential and take them to the next level of their development.
EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invest in are expected to be EIS-qualifying, which makes Fuel Ventures Portfolio 1 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. See guide 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
