From July 1, 2016 technology start-ups and high growth SME companies need to “qualify” as an “ESIC” for their investors to be “eligible” for tax incentives under the ESIC scheme for each tax year going forward.

A company will “qualify” as an “ESIC” if it meets both:-
1. The “early stage test” and
2. The “100 point innovation test” or the “principles based innovation test.”

R&R Strategic possesses the expertise and capacity to ensure companies obtain their “ESIC” status so that investors “quality” for tax incentives going forward.

Tax Incentives for Early Stage Investors:

“Sophisticated” Investors:
Receive a carry forward tax offset equal to 20% of the amount invested in “qualifying” investments up to $1m for each tax year, and receive CGT free treatment if held for greater than one year and less than ten years.

Receive similar tax relief as the above for investments up to $50k.
