Risks of investing in The Davy EII Tax Relief Fund 2016:
1. This is a medium to long term investment (minimum of four years from date of investment of the funds) and there is no early exit mechanism.
2. If you invest in this Fund you may lose some or all of the money you invest.
3. There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.
4. Investors are exposed to the performance of the small and medium sized companies in which the Fund will invest.
5. Income tax relief which is available in two tranches may not be granted or may be withdrawn if the conditions of the legislation are not satisfied by the Manager, the Fund, Investee Companies and/or Qualifying Investors.
6. The Manager may not succeed in finding suitable companies and/or fully investing the Fund which may result in a return of uninvested funds and a reduction or recovery of the income tax relief already claimed or potentially available to Investors.
7. You may not have sufficient income taxable at the higher rate so that part or all of the first tranche of income tax relief on 30/40ths of the investment amount, if obtained, could be obtained at a lower rate than the higher rate then applying.
8. The higher rate of income tax could reduce from its current 40% rate so that the second tranche of income tax relief on 10/40ths of the investment amount, if obtained, in the year of assessment following the end of the four year investment period could be obtained at a lower rate than the current 40% rate.
9. You may not have sufficient income taxable at the higher rate so that the second tranche of income tax relief on 10/40ths of the investment amount, if obtained, could be obtained at a lower rate than the higher rate then applying. No income tax relief will apply to the second tranche of income tax relief on 10/40ths of the investment amount in the year of assessment following the end of the four year investment period if you have no taxable income at that time.
