How to calculate how much to invest in VCT?

VCT versus EIS

Didn't find your answer?


I normally invest enough in EIS to claim back the income tax from the prior year. I'm considering investing in VCT but I believe I can only claim the tax allowance in the tax year of the investment. But I don't know how much to invest until the tax year has ended (to know my income tax) so I have a chicken and egg problem? Please can you tell me if I'm missing something? Many thanks for your help

We are missing what the source of income is which generates your normal income tax liability.

Presumably your February payslip gives you a good starting point.
