    What is the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)?

    Raising start-up and seed capital for young companies has always been difficult. Investors can be wary of entrepreneurs and untried ideas. The UK Government-supported Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) makes this process easier by giving generous tax relief to investors in new businesses. They invest, you get funding, they get a tax break. It’s a successful formula for all. Since its introduction in 2012, more than £1 billion has been raised for thousands of UK companies with SEIS. Get your new business off the ground with the investment scheme that does what it says on the tin.

    SEIS was designed to boost economic growth in the UK by promoting new enterprise and entrepreneurship.  Under Seis, individuals who invest in qualifying companies may be eligible for tax relief on their investment, including a 50% income tax reduction on the amount invested and the ability to carry back the investment to the previous tax year. In order to qualify for Seis tax relief, the company must be a UK-registered business with fewer than 25 employees and gross assets of less than £200,000. Additionally, the company must be conducting a new business or an existing business that has undergone a significant change in its nature or size. Seis tax relief is intended to help small businesses access the funding they need to grow and succeed.

    The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) offers great tax efficient benefits to investors in return for investment in small and early-stage start-up businesses in the UK.  

    For investors, SEIS offers the following benefits:

    • Income tax relief: Investors can claim 50% income tax relief on the amount they invest, up to a maximum of £100,000 per tax year.
    • Capital gains tax (CGT) exemption: If an investor sells their SEIS shares at a profit, they may be eligible for CGT exemption on the gain.
    • Loss relief: If an investment made under SEIS is not successful and the company fails, investors may be able to claim relief on some or all of the amount invested through their tax return.

      The Process Of Applying FOR SEIS Can Be Daunting And Time Consuming.
