The Fund will seek to identify the most ambitious and scalable opportunities in the design sector today and believe that the Fund has the right investment approach and access to quality deals that have the potential to deliver exceptional returns. We will assist the Investee Companies to build products that people want and need. In doing this, the Fund will invest in some of the UK’s potentially most exciting design companies, helping them grow and taking them to the next level of their development.

SEIS & EIS tax incentives
The companies the fund invest in are expected to be SEIS-EIS-qualifying, which makes British Design Fund 2 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 reinvestment relief 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.

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IHT relief) will be available on any investment made or that if it is initially available, it will not be subsequently withdrawn.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.
