Big Society Capital is partnering with Intelligent Partnership (IP) to understand if EIS investment managers are ready, willing and able to develop social impact investments.

Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) is a tax incentive designed to encourage investment into projects and organisations that aim to deliver social benefits as well as financial returns.

SITR has been based on the existing EIS reliefs, and in anticipation of the limit on how much can be invested into one organisation being lifted from £250,000 to £5m, Big Society Capital is keen to find out if the EIS managers are gearing up to step into this new market.
