Beyond the balance sheet

What is SEIS and how does it work?

A conceptual video that explains what SEIS is and how it is beneficial to investors, by Ercan Demiralay FCCA.

It is a common question we're asked by investors and entrepreneurs, "tell me more about SEIS". SEIS stands for the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme and is a tax incentive suited to investors who are willing to take on some risk by including unlisted, early stage British companies in their portfolios.

The initiative was set up by the government to help start-ups access to much needed funding (in certain sectors). It also ensures investors can pursue better returns in a tax efficient manner. This video courtesy of School for Startups tells you everything you need to know.


Be sure to obtain professional advice to understand if SEIS is applicable to investments either in your own business, or the organisation(s) you're looking to invest in.
