star this property answer text <p>The government has been clear that lower-risk companies which already receive support through particular renewable energy tariffs and incentives should not also qualify for the tax incentives offered through the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Venture Capital Trust scheme (VCTs). However, the government recognises that community energy projects currently face particular challenges owing to the small scale, higher fixed and operational costs and an underdeveloped market. For this reason, Autumn Statement announced that all community energy generation undertaken by qualifying organisations will be eligible for Social Investment Tax Relief (SITR) with effect from the date of the expansion of SITR, at which point it will cease to be eligible for EIS, SEIS or VCTs.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Co-operatives do not qualify for SITR as they are run for the benefit of their members rather than for the benefit of the community. However, co-operatives with a social purpose and which meet other criteria can convert to a community benefit society by free application to the FCA. Those that remain co-operatives and benefit from subsidies for the generation of renewable energy will no longer be eligible for EIS, SEIS and VCTs once State aid approval is received for the expansion of SITR.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The government is currently considering appropriate arrangements to ensure that there is a smooth transition for community energy activities from EIS, SEIS and VCTs to SITR.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>By allowing community energy organisations to qualify for SITR in the future, the government is ensuring that community organisations generating energy for the community benefit will remain able to access tax-relieved investment. The government believes that the community purpose underpinning community energy schemes makes accessing risk finance under SITR more appropriate than using the other tax-advantaged venture capital schemes. In addition, co-operatives which choose not to benefit from subsidies for the generation of renewable energy will remain eligible for investment under the tax-advantaged venture capital schemes.</p><p> </p><p>The government believes that the incentives it provides are fair and sufficient to encourage investment into community energy organisations. The government remains committed to the community energy sector more generally and continues to offer grant and loan development support through programmes such as the Rural Community Energy Fund, the Urban Community Energy Fund and the Green Investment Bank.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>An assessment of the impacts can be found here:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/385117/TIIN_2111_2054.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/385117/TIIN_2111_2054.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
