Entrepreneurs’ Relief is a valuable tax relief scheme which reduces your liability for capital gains tax (CGT). When Entrepreneurs’ Relief is used, CGT is reduced to an effective rate of just 10%; this is what makes extracting the proceeds of a company by way of an MVL so appealing.
Entrepreneurs’ Relief is subject to a lifetime limit of £1m per individual although there is no limit to the amount of businesses you can sell while utilising Entrepreneurs’ Relief, so long as the £1m worth of capital gains is no exceeded. In order to qualify, you must have held a minimum shareholding of 5% for at least two years from the time the company enters liquidation.
