EIIS Investment Funds
The following is a list of current EIIS Funds for investing in Irish Companies. Funds are a great way to get a managed investment in a portfolio of companies.
Minimums can vary a lot but are
typically €5,000-€25,000 with on off fees of around 3%. The funds typically open in October/November each year and close at the end of December. This will allow claiming of tax the follow October. However it can take time for the money to actually get invested, and the EIIS certificates for tax relief to be returned to you. Depending on the fund they many only issue a single document for all the investment once completed.
From 2024 funds will produce a blended tax relief rate likely 30-35%. This information wil be available from the fund provider.
Alternatively you could consider and EIIS Crowdfunding platforms or direct investments with EIIS qualifying companies.
