The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) is a scheme designed to help small, early stage companies raise equity finance by offering a range of tax relief to investors who purchase new shares in those companies. Complementing the existing Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), the aim of SEIS is to encourage investment in higher-risk small companies.

Since the scheme began in 2012, almost 2,900 companies have received investment through the scheme and over £250 million has been invested. In 2013/14, 2,030 companies received investment of £166 million under the scheme. The average SIES investment in 2013/14 was almost £82,000.

This factsheet explains what SEIS is, what types of tax relief are available, who the scheme is open to and how to apply.
