Secure, regulated tax incentives
for early stage investors

Discover investments in innovation to help you plan, build and manage your wealth

From 1 July 2016, the Australian government is making it more attractive for investors to invest in early stage investment companies.

The tax benefits include a 20 per cent tax offset on new equity investments, capped at $200,000 per sophisticated investor, per year, and a 10-year capital gains tax exemption for profits realised on such investments held for at least 12 months.

Your investment decisions for early-stage investor companies will depend on a company being qualified as an ESIC® , which then makes you eligible for the new innovation tax incentives.

At ESIC ® Hub, we provide a tool for early-stage investor companies to assess themselves as being ESIC® ready. This tool is called the ESIC® Predictor. As an investor, we have developed a tool to help you estimate the potential tax savings if early-stage investment interests you.  This tool is called the ESIC®  Tax Saving Estimator.

We specialise in issuing investors with ESIC® qualifying tax-advice certificates, a vital step to securing your tax savings. The onus is on investors to validate their investment is ESIC® qualifying at the time of their investment. ESIC® Hub has the solutions, experience and depth of knowledge to help you secure your ESIC® tax saving entitlements.

The ESIC® Investor Questionnaire and ESIC® Tax Saving Estimator

To obtain access to, and more information on, early stage investment opportunities please complete and submit the ESIC® Investor Questionnaire. For the ESIC® Tax Savings Estimator select whether you are a Sophisticated investor or not then slide to your level of investment to estimate your Tax Rebate.
