SEIS - Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme

This innovative government investment incentive was introduced in the UK in 2012.  The goal was to help very early stage companies by incentivising investors with generous tax relief.  Individual investors who take advantage of the SEIS scheme can receive half of the value of their investment back as tax relief as long as they have a tax liability for at least that amount.  The maximum investment is £100,000 and the company itself is limited to raising £150,000 under the arrangement.   If held for more than 3 years there is no Capital Gains Tax to pay on an exit.
