Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) / Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS)

Boost your funding for your company with income tax relief for your investors under SEIS and/or EIS

These Government tax incentives can apply to the issue of shares in exchange for funding provided by 'business angels' and private investors 

Capital gains tax incentives combine with attractive income tax and inheritance tax reliefs to make both SEIS and EIS much sought after tax reliefs for many investors

We can help you navigate the (often complex) SEIS/EIS tax rules


SEIS/EIS Advance Assurance from HMRC

Most investors insist that you obtain advance assurance from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) that your company qualifies for SEIS/EIS purposes 

We've helped many companies secure this valuable assurance from HMRC. We can help you too


Form SEIS/EIS 1 Filing

Once you have issued your shares to your investors, you need to obtain tax certificates for them to be able to claim the tax reliefs

You need to complete and file form SEIS1/EIS1 with HMRC to claim them. Many entrepreneurs prefer the assurance of help and support from us to file these forms (as we've successfully completed lots of them!)


SEIS: Tax advice and support

If you haven't raised funding under SEIS/EIS before, it can be a little complicated

Despite being aimed at early-stage companies, the rules can be complex and there are plenty of areas where errors can arise

We can provide technical advice and support from helping you with the advance assurance through to securing the tax certificates (and answering any questions in-between!) 


ip tax solutions came to the rescue as we battled with HMRC to get EIS advance assurance. Our situation was quite complicated and they quickly advised a sensible way forward and we were successful in getting EIS status. They also reviewed our R&D tax credit application and this was also successful a few weeks later. Highly recommended - real experts
