The UK has some of the most effective, tax-efficient investment schemes in the world in the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). These allow qualifying businesses to raise funds from UK tax-payers, giving eligible investors very generous tax reliefs and thereby de-risking their investments.
Being a qualifying company can help you attract investors and we can help you achieve this by securing SEIS / EIS approval from HMRC (known as ‘advance assurance’), something many investors will want to see before they will commit to investing in your business.
With our extensive experience, we can help you avoid some of the common (and less-common) pitfalls which can cause problems, perhaps even making your business ineligible in the first place!
So whether you want advice about your business’s eligibility for SEIS and/or EIS, or you would like to obtain advance assurance, or you need assistance in preparing a shareholders’ agreement and articles that satisfy the requirements of the schemes, we would be delighted to share our expertise and help you.
