EIS Relief - Part Cash Part Share Sale

Postby mp2016 » Mon Oct 02, 2023 2:06 pm


I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how the following scenario would play out tax wise.

I have EIS options/Shares in a company. Under normal circumstances if I sell my shares, either when the company is sold or to a third party I would pay 10% tax on the amount.

However what would happen in the situation where the company was sold for part cash and part shares in another company, in my case a London Stock Exchange listed company.

If I was given a hypothetical £50,000 in Cash and £100,000 in Shares (that had to be held for 2 years and could go up or down in value) in the listed company - would it be 10% on the £50,000 and 10% on the £100,000 of shares when sold at whatever price they were sold at?

Thanks in advance
