EIS Cautions & Disclaimers
Accolade Enterprise Investment Scheme open to investors - 2016
Phone 0141 774 4600 to check availability of this 30% tax saving EIS
An Enterprise Investment Scheme may be
offered to the general public as it is not regulated under Section 238 of the
Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.
However, an E.I.S. may not be a suitable
investment in your circumstances. Before
subscribing for shares, please take appropriate financial advice as to the suitability of the Accolade Enterprise Investment Scheme for yourself.
All E.I.S. may be characterised as suitable for
wealthy and adventurous investors who can afford to take a high level of risk
and lock money away for the long term.
HM Revenue & Customs 'Notes About EIS' includes the following paragraphs:-
"When investing in small, unquoted
companies, there is a significant risk that you may lose your investment, or at
least not see any substantial return. This in turn makes it difficult for
companies to raise equity financing.
To assist both sides, the Enterprise
Investment Scheme was devised by the UK Government to allow a range of
tax reliefs to investors in shares of qualifying companies, thereby aiming to
increase investments in this area."
Accolade Partnership Limited ask that you remember, by their very nature, EIS are higher risk investments. They should
only be considered by those who can afford to take such risks. They are intended for sophisticated investors who expect to hold them long term, whilst still accepting they may get back less than they invested.
Don't let a tax incentive 'tale' wag the investment dog!
Tax sweeteners can NEVER turn a bad investment into a good one...only lessen the bitterness when it fails.
50% of business start-ups fail within 12 months; 95% go broke inside 5 years. Accolade was established in 1980 and has been successfully trading for 32 years.
However, Accolade shares have no listing on any Stock Exchange, so there isn't a recognised market making it difficult to obtain reliable information
about their value.
Minority holdings in
unquoted investments are difficult to protect and to realise, so an exit from such investments cannot be predicted. Investors should not consider investing funds which are, or may be, required before realisation can be made.
Accolade Partnership Limited is a
relatively small company and highly dependent on the skills of a group of key
executives. EIS funds raised will be applied to remedy the current reliance on core staff but no guarantee can be given in this respect.
Investments may be especially vulnerable to changes in
technology, government actions, changes in statute and competitive
pressures. In particular, there may be changes to the EIS
legislation which may affect Investor’s tax positions.

An investment into Accolade Partnership Ltd EIS may only be made on the
basis of the information set out in our Prospectus. Information is directed
only at persons in the UK
who can self-certify that they are sophisticated investors. Accolade does not provide advice on
investors' suitability for an investment in its EIS.
Opinions expressed on this

Accolade has taken reasonable care to ensure that the
facts stated in this website are true and accurate in all material respects,
and that there are no other material facts or opinions which have been omitted
where the omission of such would render this website misleading.
this website who intend to invest in the EIS outlined are reminded that such an
investment may only be made on the basis of the information and other risk
factors that they ascertain and verify for themselves.
The value of tax savings depends on your circumstances... and tax rules change over time. There is also a risk that inflation erodes the value of your subscription during the period that you are required to hold EIS shares. The longer the time-scale the more risk to capital due to inflation.
Accolade’s EIS may cease
to qualify, subject to HMRC's review process. In that case, the relief
available on an investment may be lost.
No amount of tax 'sweetener' can turn a bad investment into a good one...only lessen the bitterness when it turns sour. Avoid having your tax relief withdrawn. Choos a company that understands and complies with complex E.I.S. regulations. Whilst there can be no pre-arranged agreement for realising mature EIS shares, it will be some consolation to know that Accolade has a viable investor exit strategy.
An Enterprise Investment Scheme is by far the best way of exploiting tax breaks.

Or his deserts are small,
That puts it not unto the touch,
To win or lose it all."
