Important Information

The investments referred to in this website are not suitable for all investors. Calculus Capital Limited is not able to give advice to prospective investors about the suitability of the investments. Prospective investors are recommended to seek specialist tax and financial advice before investing in any Calculus EIS Fund, including the UK Creative Content EIS Fund.
An investment into a Calculus EIS Fund may only be made on the basis of reading in full the information set out in the relevant Information Memorandum.
When investing in the Fund, your capital is at risk. The value of shares and income from them may go down as well as up and despite the tax relief you may not recover the amount originally invested. An investment in smaller and unquoted companies carries a higher risk than many other forms of investment. Shares in unquoted companies are not readily marketable. You should not invest in an EIS unless you can afford to lose some or all of your capital.
An EIS investment is only appropriate for investors with a medium to long term investment horizon; the timing and extent of realisation cannot be predicted and may extend beyond five years. It is not possible to allow a partial withdrawal of your investment. You may request a total withdrawal, but since many investments made by the Fund will be in unquoted companies, this may not be possible. Withdrawal within three years would lead to repayment of any tax reliefs received.
The tax benefits available depend upon your individual circumstances and these benefits may change dependent upon future legislation.

Film and TV Production is the fastest growing sector in the UK economy

Recently released statistics from the British Film Institute show a record-breaking year in 2019 for Film and high-end TV production in the UK, with £3.6bn being spent, a 16% increase on 2018.

The huge international demand for content has made it the fastest growing sector in the UK economy according to Adrian Wootton OBE, the Chief Executive of the British Film Commission and Film London:

Film and high-end TV are big business, indeed we are the fastest growing sector in the economy, and today’s record breaking figures show the UK continuing to meet the growing demand for content, studio space and world-class skills, talent and technical expertise. It’s vital we continue to nurture and champion the exceptional talent across our screen industries; the BFC working together with our public and private partners across the UK to seize the growth opportunities for nations and regions, putting inclusivity and sustainability at the heart of everything we do.”

Whilst there has been a drop in UK independent film and TV production, studios and streamers have been rushing over to our shores in order to benefit from the world class talent, crews and production services that are on offer in conjunction with the UK’s creative sector tax reliefs.

According to Amanda Nevill CBE, CEO of the BFI, which is working in association with Calculus Capital on the UK Creative Content EIS Fund said

Today’s figures show an incredibly vibrant picture, a sector that continues to grow, delivering billions to the economy and a wide spectrum of jobs all over the UK.”

Although film production remained ahead of TV, the increasingly competitive media landscape has meant inward investment and co-production into UK TV has surpassed £1 billion for the first time rocketing up 51% to £1.29bn. The sector has bought billions into the economy whilst creating a wide array of jobs.

Nigel Adams, Minister for Creative Industries said

The increase in inward investment reflects the UK’s acclaimed reputation as a home for fantastic talent and creativity in our film and television sectors.”

The news comes at a perfect time for our Creative Content EIS Fund and reaffirms our view that there has never been a better time to create, own and invest in UK content.
