EIS & the Self assessment


I understand that EIS tax relief can be claimed up to 5 years after share purchase according to the following advice:


"Claims to relief can be made up to five years after the first 31 January following the tax year in which the investment was made."


My question is can I split the tax relief for a single share subscription accross several years? e.g. Can I buy £20,000 of shares (eligible for £6000 of relief) and claim £2000 relief in the first year, £2000 relief in the second year and £2000 relief in the third year?


Many thanks,
