SEIS

The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) offers generous tax reliefs to investors in companies that meet the qualifying criteria. The SEIS is focussed on helping very early stage companies get investment up to £150K. The company must have been trading for less than 2 years and have less than £200,000 of assets. We can help with all aspects of obtaining SEIS from initial advice on whether your company qualifies through to handling the application and share issue.

EIS

The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is the big brother of the SEIS. It still offers generous tax reliefs to investors, albeit slightly reduced from the SEIS. The EIS is focussed on SME's and allows them to receive investment up to £12m (£5m p.a). The company must have been trading for less than 7 years and have less than £15m of assets. Companies can have already received investment under the SEIS before raising under the EIS. We can help with all aspects of obtaining EIS from initial advice on whether your company qualifies through to handling the application and share issue.

Research and development (R&D) tax credits are a great tax relief offered by the government to companies who invest in innovation. This provides companies with funding of up to 33% on costs that qualify. We can help you identify whether you are eligible and which costs qualify.
