VCT Tax Benefits

The VCT tax breaks are summarised thus*:

  • Up-front income tax relief of 30% (on up to £200,000 invested per tax year if the shares are retained for five years)
  • tax-free dividends
  • tax-free capital gains (when you sell your shares)

The tax benefits provided by VCTs offer you an up-front Government-subsidised return, along with additional tax benefits over time. The benefits are explained in much more detail in each of the downloadable product brochures in the table below.
