Discover why investors love to reduce risk.

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

Our Accounting Practice is a member of EISA.
Our Advisors are certified with EIS Accreditation.

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.
