The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) provides tax relief for individuals looking to invest in new and growing companies.
Income tax relief worth 50% of the amount invested is provided by the SEIS. This can only be claimed by individuals with stakes of no more than 30% in new companies.
Whilst the SEIS can prove to be an attractive alternative way of utilising funds, it is important to speak to experts before you can make the most of the opportunities it presents.
The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) allows qualifying companies access to equity investment from new and, in some cases, existing shareholders.
The EIS helps certain types of small, higher-risk unquoted trading companies to raise capital. It does so by providing income tax and CGT reliefs for investors in qualifying shares in these companies.
