Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is approved

Important news for investors: The government EIS scheme has been approved for the Save the Duke Community Pub project. This means if you pay sufficient personal income tax, you should be able to reclaim 30% of the value of your investment. Sounds too good to be true? It isn't! It is designed especially to help small community projects like ours.

For example, if you are a tax payer and you were to invest £1,000 in shares you should be able to reclaim £300 back from your end of year return through the EIS scheme, it would cost you just £700!   (Terms and conditions apply and you should get independent tax and financial advice before investing.)

Further details can be found in the share prospectus and business plan or from HMRC at:

Even more reason to invest - you can now afford more shares than you first thought!
