The British Design Fund 3 leverages the UK’s position as one of the preeminent design centres in Europe along with the lack of dedicated VC/seed investors in this sector in order to invest in innovative early-stage design-led businesses. The Fund works with extraordinary entrepreneurs and their teams to support the best cultures, work ethics, and ultimately, help create thriving stand-out companies.
The team 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 3 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% 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.
