The aim of the EIS and its new sibling, the Seed EIS, is to provide very attractive tax benefits to private investors to encourage much needed investment into new ventures and growth opportunities. As well as mitigating downside in these higher risk companies, the tax breaks are designed to enhance returns enabling investors to shelter potentially considerable equity assets, which would otherwise attract a number of personal taxes.
