Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR)

Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) is a scheme that can help you save on tax and also make a difference by investing in charities or businesses with a social impact. Social Investment Tax Relief is considered to be one of the most tax efficient investments in the UK today.

There are a range of tax reliefs available to you when you invest in SITRs:

  • 30% Income Tax relief: applies to your entire investment, regardless if you invested in shares or loans
  • 0% Capital Gains Tax (CGT): only for shares – loans don’t qualify
  • 100% Capital loss relief: also only for shares
  • 100% Inheritance Tax free if you held the shares for 2 years
  • You can also defer your CGT if you reinvest in another set of SITR shares.
