It was confirmed as part of the Spring Budget announcements that the Social investment tax relief (SITR) scheme will end as planned on 5 April 2023. New investments made on or after 6 April 2023 will no longer qualify for Income and Capital Gains Tax relief. The scheme was initially introduced to encourage individuals to support social enterprises and charities access new sources of finance.

For any investments made before 6 April 2023, the lifetime maximum amount of investment social enterprises can raise through the SITR is £1.5 million. This includes any money received by subsidiaries, former subsidiaries or businesses that have been acquired.

Individuals making an eligible investment in a SITR of up to £1,000,000 can deduct 30% of the cost of their investment from their Income Tax liability for the relevant later year in which the investment is made or the previous tax year. Qualifying investors can also benefit from Capital Gains Tax hold-over relief. To qualify for this relief, a Social enterprise must have been a community interest company, a community benefit society, with an asset lock or a charity.
