Equity fundraising (via SEIS / EIS tax advantaged schemes)

Equity fundraising (via SEIS / EIS tax advantaged schemes)

Collectively, our team has over 20 years of experience in advising on various forms of tax advantaged equity fundraising activities for new and existing businesses.

Successful businesses may require external funding for several reasons:

  • to invest capital in growth opportunities; or
  • to release value tied up in the business

The injection of new capital from an external investor can not only deliver the funding sought by existing shareholders but also bring fresh ideas and challenges on the future direction of their business. We work closely with our clients to assess the funding requirements of both company and shareholders, and determine which forms of external capital are most suitable to deliver the strategic aims.

We have strong relationships with a number of IFA’s who in turn have a large network of retail investors, constantly seeking new ideas and ventures to invest funds via the EIS / SEIS tax advantaged schemes. We have also developed a network of high net worth individuals who are often able to provide funding for projects which are operationally sound but which would fall outside the investment criteria of more traditional sources of finance.
