James Tillotson explains the different advantages of SEIS and EIS investments to both business owners and investors.
If you're looking to raise finance for your expanding business and going down the investor route then it's worth checking out this infographic, is it an SEIS or EIS investment? You'll then be able to decipher if it's the Enterprise Investment Scheme or Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme that's relevant to your business raising finance. It's also useful to understand the different benefits these share schemes provide.
That's why we've put together another infographic to visually demonstate the advantages, which is also particularly relevant if you're an investor. For business owners the merits of EIS and SEIS are largely the same and, it's likely that once you have gone through a tranche of SEIS funding, you'll probably return for EIS funding later in your business journey.
It's advisable to seek professional advice in understanding which form of tax relief is applicable to your business circumstances or, any organisations you're considering investing in.
