Investing with us

The Access Fund makes the investment process as simple and intuitive as possible for our investors and their advisors, while providing everything you need to monitor your portfolio and claim tax benefits with minimal administrative burden.

Investments into EIS funds are illiquid and your capital is at risk.
Make an investment
To make an investment with the Access Fund simply click ‘Invest in Access EIS’. You can then read through more about the fund, register, and complete our simple investment form.

We’ll confirm your investment by email and send you the details you need to transfer funds.
We build your portfolio
The Access Fund will begin deploying your investment into startups two weeks after you invest.

Returns are generated when one of your portfolio companies exits at a higher value, usually through acquisition or IPO. We will notify you whenever this happens, and send the returns directly to your bank account.
Track your portfolio
Each time we add a startup to your portfolio, it will appear in your investor dashboard. We’ll send you monthly updates on the new startups we’re investing in by email, together with two biannual and two quarterly update reports throughout the year.

If you’re a financial adviser, you can access and monitor the portfolios of all of your Access clients in the same way.
Claim your tax relief
When it’s time to file your tax return, you can use our one-click system to quickly download all the details of your investments required by HMRC, keeping admin to a minimum.

The tax reliefs available to EIS investors include:

Tax reliefs

Up to 30% income tax relief.
The maximum investment that can be claimed on in a single year is £1m. This annual maximum rises to £2m if investments are made in Knowledge Intensive Companies (KICs).
0% tax on EIS gains.
If EIS shares are sold at a profit, any gain made on that investment is tax free.
Capital gains deferral.
Any gain you make through selling other assets can be reinvested in EIS, and deferred for as long as the investment is held.
Inheritance tax relief.
EIS shares are exempt from inheritance tax, as they qualify for Business Property Relief (BPR), but shares must have been held for two years prior to death.
Loss relief.
Loss relief allows investors to offset a loss on an EIS investment against their income tax or capital gains tax bill.
Your digital portfolio
Our investors and their advisors are able to get up to the minute information on their portfolio by checking their investor dashboard.

You can view your dashboard by logging in to SyndicateRoom and clicking ‘My Dashboard’. Here you can view information on each startup currently in your portfolio, the number of shares you hold and any changes in share prices, together with current portfolio value and how much of your investment remains to deploy.

You can also check the status of your fee payments and any discounts here, as well as downloading EIS documents and tax information when it's time to claim tax relief.
