Entrepreneur's relief on member's shares

No minimal share requirement?

Didn't find your answer?

Good afternoon,

When a member of an LLP sells his/her share to a third party, does the gain qualify for ER even if the share in the LLP is below 5%? I think there is no minimal share requirement as long as he/she has held an interest in the business for at least 12 months.

Could someone kindly confirm?

Either of the following must also apply for at least one year before you sell your shares:

you have at least 5% of shares and voting rights in the company - if they’re not EMI shares
you were given the option to buy them at least one year before you’re selling them - if they’re EMI shares

Oh good grief. They're not shares in a company.

It is a "share" in an LLP, and the 5% is then only relevant to associated disposals.

Engage brain before regurgitating 5h1t off the internet.

Ha Ha - I was going to respond to the OP but felt pretty sure that someone would respond as above. I wasn't disappointed.
