Discover why investors love to reduce risk.

SEIS and EIS are government approved schemes to encourage investment into early stage, unlisted companies.

We’re excited to be among the finalists in EISA Awards 2022 as the best EIS/SEIS Tax Adviser

Investors like them as they reduce the risk of investing in young companies by offering tax relief.

But before they commit, most investors want to know if your business is eligible for SEIS or EIS. We make sure that is. We ensure you meet all the requirements, liaise with HMRC and submit the application on your behalf.

Good news! You enter your funding round by showing investors you are SEIS / EIS approved by HMRC.

We published a 1-page summary of the benefits and eligibility for EIS and SEIS.

    Does your company have a permanent establishment in the UK?

    A permanent establishment can be your office or factory, a place of management, a branch, a workshop, a quarry, mine, oil or gas well or a building site. The definition is quite broad, get in touch for more info.

    Is your company publicly traded?

    For EIS/SEIS purposes, a company is considered "publicly traded" if its shares are listed on a Recognised Stock Exchange.

    Does your company have less than 90% ownership or control over any subsidiaries?

    A subsidiary is any company of which your business owns shares, or over which it has significant control. Click No if your company has no subsidiaries.

    A parent company is one that either owns more than 50% of shares in your business or has significant control over it.

    What is the value of your company's Gross Assets?

    You can find the value your company's Gross Assets on your latest Balance Sheet.

    How many full-time employees does your company have?

    If any of your employees don't work full-time, you should use Full-Time Equivalent units.

    When did your company start trading?
