Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) was announced to help new businesses, who have not previously traded, to attract investors in an attempt to encourage growth in the difficult economic times we have experienced in recent years. It allows a maximum investment of £150,000, and if it is structured and implemented correctly, can enable the investor to recover MORE than the original investment in tax rebates.

The key here is that the business cannot have traded, so it is essential that the SEIS scheme be carefully considered before trading starts, otherwise any potential savings are lost. Once agreed and in place, 100% of the investment must be used within twelve months.

As with the EIS Scheme, we can handle all of the processes around the SEIS scheme, including the preapproval process and applications.

If you are a new business, contact us before you start trading; we'd love to help you get an SEIS scheme in place to help your business.
