Possible return on investment

An average of 40% of young companies go bankrupt after 3 years while 30% make an interesting exit after 5 years (×5 the investors’ initial investment). The remaining 30% are still operational but investors do not gain any profit (×1 the investors’ initial investment).

Based on this data, including the subscription and setup fee, we can calculate your theoretical return on investment of your Tax Shelter Tracer.

If you invest €10,000 in 10 companies, meaning €1,000 per company, with the benefit of a 45% tax deduction thanks to the Tax Shelter, you could benefit from a net capital gain of €11,429.

  5. What’s the difference between the Tax Shelter Tracer and the other Tracers?

    Each Tracer has its own set of characteristics.

    This Tracer enables investors to create of a portfolio of investments in 10 Tax Shelter eligible startups eligible meeting certain criteria.

    To be eligible for Tax Shelter, a startup must have been established in the last 4 years (48 months). The companies present in the Tax Shelter Tracer will therefore probably only be companies in the “startup phase”. On the one hand, the risk of bankruptcy is therefore greater, but on the other hand, there also is a possibility of strong growth in the event of a positive market return.

    The startups selected for the Tax Shelter Tracer will all have to meet a set of specific characteristics in order to ensure that they meet the criteria of the Tracer.
