Venture Capital Trust (VCT)

  • 1 min read

A Venture Capital Trusts (VCT) is an investment fund that invests in small and early stage businesses. These funds are also usually listed on the London Stock Exchange.

VCTs are one of the most tax efficient investments in the UK – others are SEIS, EIS, CITR, SITR, ISAs, and SIPPs.

When you invest in a VCT fund you can receive 30% Income Tax relief plus tax-free dividends.

If you want to claim this tax relief, you need to file a Self Assessment tax return (you’ll also need your VCT tax certificate and share certificates).
