Investment Ready? SEIS/EIS approval explained

The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme is a United Kingdom government scheme to encourage investors to finance start-ups by providing tax breaks for backing projects they may otherwise view as too risky.

But before you get too excited about this support, you need to know:

  • What conditions must be met for a company to be eligible to issue shares under the SEIS / EIS?
  • How can it help with investment – what are the tax benefits for the investor?
  • What are the first steps in securing SEIS / EIS approval?
  • What will it mean for my business in the longer term?

This webinar is part of a new programme of ‘Investment Readiness’ support coordinated by OxLEP Business and supported by some of Oxfordshire’s leading innovation and investment experts.

By attending this workshop and joining this programme, you will equip yourself with the knowledge to position your business as an irresistible investment opportunity, setting the stage for success in Oxfordshire and beyond.
