EIS

enquire today »
The process for a company to get approved to issue EIS shares involves a fair degree of work. However, the process itself is relatively straightforward once the company meets the necessary qualifying conditions.
There are a number of conditions that a company must meet in order to be confident of EIS qualifying status. This includes ensuring that the money raised is used for a qualifying business activity. The money raised must be spent within 2 years of the investment or the date the business started trading. The money must be used to grow or develop the business and cannot be used to buy all or part of another business.

Under the EIS scheme, a company can raise up to £5 million each year, and a maximum of £12 million in the company’s lifetime. This includes amounts received from other venture capital schemes. The company must also receive the investment within 7 years of making their first commercial sale.

As part of the Autumn 2017 Budget, there was an introduction of different rules for knowledge-intensive companies that carry out a significant amount of research, development, and innovation. These rules allow up to £20 million (rather than £12 million) to be raised in the company’s lifetime and increases the 7 year limit for the first commercial sale to 10 years.
