Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)

How the scheme works

SEIS is designed to help your company raise money when it’s starting to trade. It does this by offering tax reliefs to individual investors who buy new shares in your company.

You can receive a maximum of £150,000 through SEIS investments. This will:

  • include any other de minimis state aid received in the 3 years up to and including the date of the investment
  • count towards any limits for later investments through other venture capital schemes

There are various rules you must follow so your investors can claim and keep SEIS tax reliefs relating to their shares.

Tax reliefs will be withheld, or withdrawn, from your investors if you do not follow the rules for at least 3 years after the investment is made.

Companies that can use the scheme

Your company can use the scheme if it:

Your company and any of its subsidiaries must:

  • not have gross assets over £200,000 when the shares are issued
  • not be a member of a partnership
  • have less than 25 full-time equivalent employees in total when the shares are issued

If you’ve received investment through the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or from a venture capital trust, you cannot use SEIS.
