What schemes are available for start ups in the UK?

The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is a well-known government initiative that can support you in raising money for your new business. It does this by offering tax relief to individual investors who wish to buy shares in your organisation. Under the EIS, you can raise up to £5 million per year, and a maximum of £12 million during your company’s lifetime.  

There are strict rules as to what the funds can be used for, and your company needs to meet a series of criteria to qualify. If you’re not sure whether the EIS is the right fit for you, contact us for advice.

The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) is a venture capital scheme that can generate up to £150,000 in tax relief from eligible investments. Again, you will need to check that your company meets the relevant requirements before applying for the SEIS. We can help you determine if this is the correct scheme for your business.
