Fuel Ventures Scale-Up EIS Fund specialises in seed stage investments in the European marketplace, platforms and SaaS sectors. As the early-stage investors in some of the UK’s fastest-growing technology businesses, the team at Fuel Ventures are able to benefit from high volume deal flow and identify the companies that have the potential to be the next UK high-growth companies.

Investment Strategy
The Fund will seek to invest in promising companies at the seed stage. The four-stage approach used in identifying a potential Investee Com
Outlined below is the Investment Manager and Investment Adviser’s four-stage approach used in identifying a potential Investee Company:
  • Identification: All identified opportunities will be evaluated before moving to the discovery stage.
  • Discovery: The Fund seeks to invest in people as much as ideas. 
  • Evaluation: Fuel Venture’s evaluation process tests the assumptions of the company plans.
  • Investment
EIS tax incentives

The companies the fund invest in are expected to be EIS-qualifying, which makes Fuel Ventures Scale-up Fund 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 (or 50% capital gains exemption for SEIS)
  • 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.

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
