EIS tax relief clawback

How is it reported?

Didn't find your answer?

I can't seem to find a definitive answer on this - some of my clients EIS shares were sold last summer, less than 3 years after they were purchased, so he owes HMRC £250-odd back in clawed back income tax relief - how does he pay this?  Does it just go on his tax return or does he pay it sooner?

1. The investor notifies HMRC under s 240 ITA 2007 that an event triggering withdrawal has occurred within 60 days of the event occurring.

2. HMRC makes an assessment under s 235. This has nothing to do with reporting in the tax return or the tax calculation - see s 32 ITA 2007.

3. Failure to file the return within 60 days can lead to a penalty under s 98 TMA: see column 2 in the Table.

The manual reference is VCM14190.

Thanks both, very helpful. The annoying thing is that when I searched the forum for 'eis clawback' I got zero results!
