Tax breaks

Investing in debt opportunities could give you access to tax-free interest via an Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA). IFISAs cover loans arranged through marketplace lending platforms like CODE Investing. Depending on your SIPP provider, investments can also be made through a SIPP.*

Most equity opportunities on our platform qualify for the SEIS or EIS schemes, which could allow investors to benefit from tax breaks of up to 50% on their investments.

The CODE Investing investment process

Step 1 Application to raise funds

All businesses are pre-screened against maturity and size metrics to ensure we only consider suitable candidates.

Step 2 Evaluating your business proposal

We combine technology with industry best practices to generate a credit assessment and vet the business. Our team of financial professionals also use their extensive experience to advise on structuring and pricing.

The results of the diligence process are passed on to our Credit Committee before a decision is made on pricing and terms. Any identified areas requiring further investigation are fed back to the diligence team for follow-up before approval

We produce relevant legal and investor documents, and confirm compliance for the offer. It then goes live on our platform where you, as a registered investor can review and invest in the opportunity.

Benefit from your long-term investments

Investment in early-stage businesses involves high risk, including the possibility that you could lose all your capital. Nevertheless, young companies, as an asset class, have produced significantly higher returns than others in the past.
With a diversified portfolio, you have the potential to grow your capital significantly more through early-stage investments than, for example, government bonds, property or quoted shares.*

Return on investment

* According to a comprehensive NESTA study, startups provided a greater average annualised total return over the period 2002 to 2007 compared to gilts, property, stocks and shares. The research analysed 1,080 early-stage investments made between 1998 and 2008, and it showed an overall internal rate of return of 22%. On this basis, an early-stage business might be an interesting investment opportunity as part of a diversified portfolio.

We wouldn’t have been able to achieve our goals via traditional funding routes and I hope our experience encourages other SMEs to consider crowdfunding as a viable alternative source of finance. Ben O'Brien
