Online learning on the Enterprise Investment Scheme

part of the Tax and Estate Planning Accreditation

Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is a series of UK tax reliefs designed to encourage investments in small to medium size, unquoted companies, carrying on a qualifying trade in the United Kingdom. 

This e-learning course is designed as an accessible, CPD accredited resource on EIS. New terms, definitions and examples are introduced gradually, building a clear picture of the relief. It is intended to give advisers the competence and confidence to ably interact with clients and to identify when EIS is right for them.
In addition, all Financial Planners and Regulated Advisers who successfully complete the EIS Accreditation will receive a free membership to EIS Association.
