Social Capital – Raising Funds Using Community Shares & Bonds
17 March –
Are you looking for additional ways of funding your service delivery? Are you looking to develop your business operations in new areas? Are you making full use of all your available assets? (not just buildings, but also your links with the wider community).
In the 2014 Budget, the Chancellor made Tax Relief available to people investing in support organisations that create Community Benefit.
Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) – currently 30% – is now available for people in the community who invest in Social Bonds to provide funding for permitted activities that create community benefit.
A further scheme – the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) – currently 30% or 50% relief rates – is available for people in the community who invest in Community Shares to provide funding for permitted activities that create community benefit.
This 3 hour seminar will introduce you to both SITR and EIS and how they might be used to create a mixed portfolio of funding for your charity / social enterprise / community benefit society.
Who should attend? Managers (CEOs etc) in charities, community interest companies (CIC) and community benefit societies (BENCOM) who are looking for a package of funding and innovative ways of securing capital for development/expansion of their services.
Those attending the event will be able to receive follow-up support to explore and/or develop proposals for their particular circumstances
