Rare opportunity for you to buy a share in a historic Georgian Inn and make it Bedfordshire's first community pub.  Your investment will benefit the community by providing essential services and help put the heart back into Silsoe.

Advanced Assurance has been provided by HMRC, confiming that we are eligible to issue compliance certificates for the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS).
EIS provides tax incentives in the form of a variety of income tax and capital gains tax reliefs to investors who invest in smaller, unquoted, trading companies. The primary tax relief takes the form of a reduction in Income Tax at a flat rate of the cost of new shares (30% of the investment). There is no minimum amount an investor can invest in any one project, however, please take into account that there is some paperwork involved and that availability of any tax relief, including EIS, depends on the individual circumstances of each investor     
The Community Shares Standard Mark is awarded by the Community Shares Unit to offers that meet national standards of good practice.
