This is a summary only – please refer to the EM and Bill for further information.
Schedule 1 to the Bill amends the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (ITAA 1997) to encourage new investment in Australian early stage innovation companies (ESICs) with high growth potential by providing qualifying investors, who invest in such companies, with a tax offset and a capital gains tax (CGT) exemption for their investments.

Schedule 2 to the Bill amends the early stage venture capital limited partnership (ESVCLP) and venture capital limited partnership (VCLP) regimes within the Venture Capital Act 2002 and Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 to improve access to venture capital investment and make the regimes more attractive to investors. The amendments provide an additional tax incentive for limited partners in new ESVCLPs, relax restrictions on ESVCLP investments and fund size and clarify the legal framework for venture capital investment in Australia.
