The core focus of Fuel Ventures EIS Portfolio 4 is in investing in companies that operate within the e-commerce and digital transaction sectors. These are 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:
Identify: to identify 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 EIS Portfolio 4 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. See guide for further information.
