The 2023 BVP EII Fund

This month’s Fund in Focus is the 2023 BVP EII Fund. The main objectives of the Fund are to provide Investors with the opportunity to invest in a number of selected qualifying companies, therefore benefiting from the tax relief provisions of the EII Scheme and the expected growth in the value of the shares from the date of investment to the date of realisation. BVP will seek to raise the Fund for the purpose of investing in a portfolio of qualifying companies across a range of various industries including internationally traded services, manufacturing, and technology. BVP believes there are good commercial opportunities available for EII Investors as a result of a lack of funding currently available to quality Small and Medium Enterprises.

Points to Note:

  • BVP has successfully raised eleven EII funds since 2007 and has previously invested in over 50 companies and two EII financed wind farms. BVP takes an active interest in all investments and in some cases,  takes an active participation on the investee company boards.
  • Tax relief is available on qualifying investments up to a maximum of €500,000 for the tax year ending in 31st December 2023 subject to those shares being held for four years
  • An EII investment can be offset against all income including rental income (whereas pension contribution cannot).
  • EII Funds invest across a portfolio of investments across different industries thereby reducing the risk profile of the investment.
