SEIS stands for Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme and EIS stands for Enterprise Investment Schemes. Such early stage investment schemes allow direct investment into new and small businesses and the tax benefits they provide serve to partially mitigate the level of risk investors inherently assume when supporting such new and small businesses.
If you are earning high amounts of income each year, and are therefore creating large amounts of income tax through this, SEIS and EIS investments can be used to allow you to claim back some or all of your income tax liability each year.
A series of well established attractive tax reliefs are designed to encourage investment into new ventures which stand to create both growth and jobs to benefit the UK economy. We are proud to have provided clients direct access to opportunities such as the Lakes Distillery, Cascade Cash Management, Future Energy and Dinosauria through our direct SEIS and EIS stable.
In sourcing new opportunities, our investment committee seeks to complement the more regular fund based approach to SEIS and EIS investment with suitable direct SEIS and EIS investment opportunities with the potential for equity ownership offering uncapped growth. Once an underlying business plan is approved, we create a formal SEIS or EIS investment opportunity and invite investment toward a set monetary goal.
