The whole ethos of the EIS is to encourage private investment into British companies that have the potential to grow, creating employment, revenue to Treasury and to compete on a global platform. Small cap companies are traditionally the route to drive the country out of recession and the EIS/SEIS have the Government’s full support in achieving this objective. Whilst the EIS can be very complex from a company’s point of view, the majority of the rules are designed for anti-avoidance and a good dose of common sense usually helps to get the process to run smoothly. For general guidance and the application process for EIS, please see here [link to EIS clearances]. eisco can also assist you with the preparation of your clearance application and submit this to HMRC.
