Ercan Demiralay FCCA exhibits the rules that decipher whether an investment is classified as SEIS or EIS.

Whether you're an entrepreneur, considering investing in a company or new to the investment world, you need to know about the tax breaks and incentives available. For investors these allow you to potentially enjoy better returns while helping you manage risk. For entrepreneurs, you can raise much needed finance by knowing about and offering these schemes to help enhance the financial opportunity you're pitching. 

The problem that arises is the regulation around the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is very specific and quite complex. Can you be sure that your business/the opportunity in question qualifies? That's why we've put the below infographic together to help you understand which (if either) of the two schemes is applicable to you.
