How to claim your VCT tax relief

When you invest in a VCT fund, you can receive 30% income tax relief plus tax-free dividends

Here is how you do it.

Documents you need to have

After you buy your VCT shares, you should receive:

  • a VCT share certificate: you will need this when you sell your VCT shares
  • and a VCT tax certificate: you will need this to claim your relief.

What you need to do next

When you’re filing your annual Self Assessment go to the “other tax reliefs” section on your Additional Information (SA101) pages.

Enter the total amount invested on section 2 of that page:
