HMRC published new requirements for companies obtaining Advanced Assurance under Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) schemes.

An online G-Form service has been launched and is now accessible at the government website

Applications using the new G-Form, including all necessary attachments, now have to be submitted online directly to HMRC’s Venture Capital Reliefs (VCR) Team. It is no longer necessary to email AA applications or any attachments to the VCR Team using the old i-form.

To allow for transition to the new process, the VCR Team will continue to accept i-forms received by email until 10th March. 

The Guidance within the Venture Capital Schemes Manual has been updated and can be accessed online

The Apply for advance assurance on a venture capital scheme guidance has also been updated and can be viewed here.
