How to get SEIS relief

What do you need to do for your company to qualify
for SEIS, and to actually get the tax relief for your
investors?

The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) is a tax break designed to help new companies in the UK.

This one, however, is not targeted at the companies themselves, but at investors in new companies. If they invest in qualifying companies, they can get a significant tax break - up to 78% of their money back in the year that the company starts trading.

Most startups launching today will want to get SEIS status. Professional investors will often expect it and will disregard a startup that doesn't know whether it will qualify for SEIS. Non-professional investors will be easily incentivised by the promise of recovering most of their money right away.

The articles below are a good starting point to understanding SEIS, but please do get in touch or call us on 0207 7488 999 if you'd like to learn more.
