Tax Planning

There are many non-contentious tax planning vehicles to suit the risk appetites of all clients ranging from NISAs, pensions, unit trusts, investment trusts, open ended investment company shares, venture capital trusts (VCT) and enterprise investment schemes (EIS).

The Financial Conduct Authority does not regulate tax advice.

The value of investments and the income from it could go down as well as up. The return at the end of the investment period is not guaranteed and you may get back less than you originally invested.

VCTs and EISs are high risk investments and there may be no market for the shares should you wish to dispose of them. You may lose your capital.
