Hi guys Very informative thread, much appreciated. I have some big capital gains not realized. Looking at three options. VCT's, etc., as above. Setting up a trust, as advised by a Financial Advisor, very complicated but basically able to make a big loss. Cost will be about 10% of my capital gains. Moving abroad, where there is no tax on capital gains, example Cyprus. However, that is not as straight forward as it appears, as it appears that there are certain time stipulations, and that as the gain is made in the UK, it could still be subject to capital gains tax. An open mind on all fronts, so please keep the ideas coming, I will comment when my research is more complete.

one thing chaps, just be aware of the iliquidity of most vct shares. The bid price will often be on a NMS of 500 shares. Try to sell a reasonable ammount and see what the mm will pay........ suffice to say, VCT = long term investment regards.

Thx HF. See the following for a definitive statement. So any thoughts about ETH anyone? http://www.trustnet.com/general/news/display-story.asp?id=62282&db=general&txtS=y "Investors in both new and secondhand shares receive exemption from income tax on dividends from VCT and exemption from capital gains tax (CGT) on gains made from selling VCT shares."

to clarify - no cgt to pay on any uplift in value from sale of vct shares whether bought as part of a new issue or in 'second hand' market. This falls under "disposal relief" in the words of the IR. Having set up & run these babies I am confident in my understanding. Regards.

99.9% SCP - other traders have confirmed it on bb's, a VCT director has stated he believed it so, and the I.Rev web site seems also to indicate it. Always best to confirm it yourself, but I'm very confident about it. I made 80% of a buy in FTV last year tax-free - and I hadn't even realised it would be tax-free when I made the purchase, I just thought it was a good deal! Doh :o))

Hi all - just became aware of this thread. I like investing in secondand VCT's, i.e already quoted ones - no CGT payable! They are sometimes illiquid, but the gains can be stellar as often the market is slow to react to events. Talking of which...here's E-technology VCT (ETH). You can buy at 50p at the offer at present. The currnet m/cap is only £6.8m, on 13.6m shares. ETH's last NAV was 61.68p at 30/9/04, i.e £8.4m net assets: http://www.uk-wire.com/cgi-bin/articles/200411120700021276F.html The interesting thing is that one of ETH's largest holdings, Sarantel, is about to float next Tuesday, 2nd March. I talked to one of the ETH directors. ETH's Sarantel holding is: 2,452,448 shares last valued at 50p each 900,000 options exerciseable at 33p each (per the director) The options came as a pleasant surprise to me as they weren't mentioned in the above RNS. Here's the Sarantel IPO RNS: http://www.uk-wire.com/cgi-bin/articles/200502250700090245J.html Sarantel are folating at 82p. This shares should add around £0.8m to NAV and the options £0.45m, taking net assets to £9.65m or 71p per share. The quoted holdings were balance a bit up on 30/9/04 last time I looked, so NAV could be up a bit more, to say 73p - Vectura is performing very well. The FT today says Sarantel is 5 times oversubscribed: http://news.ft.com/cms/s/e230560c-86d3-11d9-8075-00000e2511c8.html Sarantel raises £18m with listing By David Blackwell Published: February 25 2005 02:00 | Last updated: February 25 2005 02:00 Sarantel, the developer of a radically new design of miniature antenna for mobile phones and other wireless devices, is to step up production following its flotation on Aim next week. The company has raised £18m before expenses through a placing at 82p a share, giving it a market valuation of £43m. The offer was five times subscribed." If there's a decent premium on IPO from March 2nd onwards, ETH's current m/cap of £6.8m could look even lower in short order.

Im not really a fan. The average performance of the "Top performing" VCT's (according to IC table), is -2.6%.... begs the question what are the worst like ? I much prefer selecting my own EIS shares, to benefit from 20% income tax relief, and 40% CGT rollover relief. Having the odd sucess in the share trading game means that 40% is very useful!!!!.... LOL A combination of AIM tax benefits after holding 1, or 2 years, plus selecting the right EIS shares can substantially reduce tax liability. http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=6075735 what is a suprise is the very low interest in tax, EIS, and VCT on ADVFN BB's... do punters 'forget' to declare their trades, or simply dont make any money ?

CURRYPASTY - the problem with VCT's has been the very high charges and poor performance....but the 40% tax break makes them obviously worth looking at.... Maybe avoid the high profile ones and go for the quality, but lower profile ones and take a 10 year view.... Which VCT's do you like ?

couple of pages on VCT's in todays IC mag, worth a read if your thinking of buying one.

I think its only new issues, not purchases on the open market. You claim in current year, but if you dont hold, you have to pay the tax back. ps if you have capital gains, on for example share trading, you may be better off with EIS !

Please would Currypasty, or anyone else, advise whether it is true that you have to buy a VCT at launch only, in order to get the (40%) income tax relief? Also - due you get the relief on your first tax return after purchase, or due have to wait til the three years min. holding period is up? (And presumably you only get the relief on one year's tax). Many thanks.

Sorry I missed the correspondence on EIS schemes. Those that are marketed by other companies. Usually the 'jam' has already gone and they are leaving you with a thin coat of margarine. It is the tax saving tail waving the investment dog. Yes you may save some tax BUT you can lose your shirt. I invest in EIS's (and have made money) but only when I know the company personally. Otherwise now I am sticking to VCTs - mostly bought in the market, but occasionally a top up issue and very occasionally a new fund. Only Close Bros has a good history for new funds so stick to them. Enterprise BCT has a top up offer available at the moment and that is the one I am looking at for this year
