SEIS Investment

Want to discuss approval for SEIS Investment under the SEIS? At Key Business Consultants, we get a variety of companies and investors who appreciate our clear and concise communication as well as our industry-leading knowledge on SEIS.

To keep the SEIS tax reliefs, the company who issues the shares has to meet a number of requirements. Most Noteworthy:

  • The company must be unquoted at the time of issue of the shares. AIM and PLUS Markets listed companies are eligible.
  • The company must have fewer than 25 full-time employees (or part-time equivalents). If the company is the parent company of a group, that figure applies to the whole group.
  • The business must have no more than £200,000 in gross assets.
  • The company must not have had any investment or issued shares in which it has submitted an EIS compliance statement.
  • There is a restriction on how much money the company can raise.

Within 3 years of the date, all the monies raised must be spent for the purposes of a qualifying business activity, carried on either by the issuing company or by a 90% subsidiary, even more, the condition may be considered if an insignificant amount is used for a non-qualifying purpose, or remains unspent.

Any new start-up companies that follow the various rules of the SEIS should be able to attract investment to help them on the road to becoming a successful business.

If you have any questions we offer free consultancy and review of the eligibility for SEIS Investment for your business.
