Exciting Tax Breaks for Eligible Investors

Dear Investor,

We have some great news!

When we launched our campaign and our Share Offer document went to press, we had applied for various tax reliefs from HMRC. We are delighted to announce we have been successful and this could be very good news for you.

If you are an eligible UK income tax payer you’ll be able to claim back 50% of your investment in tax relief, no matter how much you have invested!

So, if you invested £100 you will now only pay £50 in cash terms.

But here is the really exciting bit; you can double your investment right now effectively for free! If you have invested £100, you can invest another £100 today and you won’t pay a penny in cash terms. Again, this applies no matter how much you have invested.

And this is all on top of the 3% interest we intend to pay investors.

But two things to note: firstly, this specific tax relief is limited only to the first £150K we raise. Secondly, investors should note that in order to be eligible to claim this 50% back in tax relief you will need to have already paid in the last year, or be due to pay in the current tax year, as much as that relief in tax. In other words, if you invest £100, and claim back £50, you need to have paid last year or be due to pay this year £50 in income tax.

Please read our Share Offer document for more information about this tax break.

Remember to share this great news with your friends, family  and colleagues. 

Thank you for your support!
