Acceleris provide the opportunity to build a personal portfolio of Direct EIS Investments into high-quality, disruptive technologies.

Our goal is to generate a financial return on our investment opportunities, as well as driving the innovation that will provide impactful returns for future generations.

Acceleris have lost <10% of invested capital.
Invest companies have continued to draw down further investment since our involvement, including two biotechnology IPOs and corporate funding.
UP TO 50% TAX RELIEF ON YOUR INVESTMENT
There are two key incentives to consider when investing with Acceleris Capital. The government offer the Enterprise and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme as a risk share between the government and private investors.
The government introduced the scheme in 1995 to encourage investment into unlisted technology enterprise.
Investors can receive an initial tax relief of 50% on investments up to £100,000 and Capital Gains Tax exemption for any gains on the SEIS shares.
SEIS is available for early stage companies and is only relevant for the first £150,000 invested in the business.
Investors can receive an initial tax relief of 30% on investments up to £1,000,000. Investors also benefit from a range of other incentives, including no tax relief a successful exit.
*the availability of any tax relief depends on the eligibility of the company concerned and the individual circumstances of the investor. Therefore, eligibility may be subject to change in the future.
