The EII Scheme Explained

The Employment and Investment Scheme (EII) is a revamped version of the Business Expansion Scheme. It is a tax relief incentive which provides tax benefits to eligible investors for investments made into certain qualifying small and medium sized trading companies. The  Employment and Investment Initiative Scheme enables qualifying companies to raise up to €10,000,000 (subject to a maximum of €2,500,000 in any one twelve month period) in equity funding. The programme also allows individual investors to obtain income tax reliefs on investments made into certified qualifying companies.


The EII Scheme has many benefits to eligible companies including:


  • Cash flow advantages
  • Low/fixed cost of finance for three years
  • Investment is equity not debt
  • Repayments don’t come into play until 2017
  • Existing company shareholders retain control
  • Participation may open the door for further funding opportunities such as bank financing or government support agencies.


Avid Partners will advise if your organisation is eligible for the EII Scheme and if so can assist in getting the organisation registered for the initiative. We can also manage the funding process itself and ensure that the participating company is marketed effectively for the scheme. We will also ensure that all investment opportunities are maximised.
