Early Stage Innovation Companies (ESIC)


The ESIC concessions offer highly attractive incentives to investors, and for qualifying companies make a great case for enticing new investors.

The ESIC concessions have been in play since 1 July 2016. The concessions for investors are of enormous benefit, including:
• A 20% tax offset up to $200,000
• Capital gains tax exemptions for disposals within 10 years
• Market value cost base at 10 year mark for disposals after 10 years

For any corporates attempting to raise equity, this concession is highly attractive, should you meet the requirements.

We take a look at the requirements to qualify and apply them to a practical set of facts.
