The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) - the equivalent for start-ups - is a great initiative if you are looking to raise capital for your business. The scheme offers tax incentives for investors who invest in unquoted trading companies by way of income tax and capital gains tax reliefs.
If you are an entrepreneur or small business looking for investment to grow your business, support a new venture, or want to invest in innovation through R&D, there is scope and opportunity to attract outside investment through SEIS and EIS. With the current income tax relief rate of 50% (SEIS)/30% (EIS) on investments and tax-free exit, the scheme has gained a lot of popularity from both companies and investors.
