Under EIS, a taxpayer may invest up to £1,000,000 in a qualifying new start-up business and be eligible for income tax relief of 30%

What is SEIS/EIS?

SEIS/EIS are tax relief schemes created by the UK Government to encourage investment into startups and early-stage businesses.

As an investor, SEIS/EIS benefits you by offering potentially significant income tax and capital gains reliefs when you make an investment into an EIS eligible startup or business.

What are the benefits?

Income Tax Relief: You can claim back up to 30% of the value of your investment in the form of income tax relief.

Disposal Relief: If you hold the shares for at least 3 years, then all gains that accrue on those shares may be exempt from Capital Gains Tax when you come to sell them. 

Deferral Relief: You will not have to pay Capital Gains Tax until a later date if you dispose of an asset (any asset) and use the gain you made on that asset to invest in shares in a company that qualifies for SEIS/EIS. You will usually have to pay the Capital Gains Tax when you dispose of the SEIS/EIS shares.
