SITR Match Funding

This Ethex product has Advanced Assurance for SITR up to a value of approximately £300,000 invested by eligible investors.

Bovey Paradiso is a cultural and heritage organisation meaning that the 'General Block Exemption' exempts the organisation from the de minimis limits.  This means it can revieve up to public sector support up to £150 million per year. As a result, only the SITR investors are counted within the SITR limit of £305,000.

Of the monies invested to date, approx £110k is from companies and £148k is under SEIS, meaning the remainder is SITR-eligible investment. All future investors up to the target of £500k will be have the availability of SITR.

In November 2017, the SITR limit was raised to £1.5 million in the Finance (No. 2) Act 2017. Bovey Paradiso has applied for SITR Advance Assurance to this higher level meaning if Bovey Paradiso were to reach their £500,000 target, subject to individuals' circumstances, the full £500,000 would be eligible for SITR.
