What is EIIS? 

The Employment and Investment Incentive Scheme (EIIS) is a tax relief incentive scheme, previously the Business Expansion Scheme (BES) which provides income tax relief of up to 40% to individual investors for investments in small and medium-sized companies throughout Ireland.  

The scheme offers one of the few remaining income tax reliefs and provides total income tax relief including: 


Rental income 

Employee share options

EIIS Fund 

An EIIS Fund is a professionally managed suite of EIIS investments. Investors benefit from spreading the risk of their EIIS investment across a number of companies as opposed to a direct investment in one company while still availing of income tax relief.

EIIS Webinar 

We believe there is a lack of awareness and understanding of the EIIS scheme within Ireland. We would like to see the scheme used to its full potential and we are on a mission to ensure that both investors and companies benefit. 

If you are a financial broker, investor or company looking to learn more about EIIS and our fund, we are holding a 30 minute lunchtime Zoom webinar on Friday 4th November at 1pm.
