The Enterprise Investment Scheme was launched in 1994 by the Government to encourage individuals who are UK taxpayers to invest in unquoted UK companies.

The popularity of the Enterprise Investment Scheme has increased significantly in recent years. Data from the 2021/22 tax year confirms that a record total of slightly over £2,305m was invested under the Scheme. EIS Income Tax relief was originally 20%, but since being increased to 30% in April 2011, alongside the many other tax reliefs available, EIS has been adopted by a greater number of advisers as an additional retirement planning tool.
