Securing that first investment round is critical in taking your business forward.
But how can a small start-up attract a significant level of investment with little to no trading history?
The answer is the government’s enterprise and seed enterprise investment schemes. EIS and SEIS allow investors to enjoy healthy tax advantages in return for investing in small, start-up business.
There are, of course, rules and regulations limiting the amount of investment, the size of the company, shares required and industry but Hamilton Blake’s tax team will be able to guide you through the process.
