The Enterprise Investment Scheme, or EIS, as it is more commonly known, is a scheme by which investors can receive tax relief on the investments they make into certain qualifying businesses.

EIS is similar to the SEIS scheme and therefore it is important that you take professional advice when deciding which scheme is most appropriate for you.

By being flexible and willing to make an EIS application, you make your company more attractive to investors. Investors can claim back up to 30% of the value of the investment in the form of income tax relief. That is potentially a huge saving for investors and therefore offering EIS is a very attractive proposition.

There are qualifying conditions in order for your scheme to qualify for EIS. For example, there are conditions on what the money can be raised for, the value of gross assets and the quantity of employees, and also on the overall limit you can raise using EIS and its associated schemes such as SEIS.

Further to this, you cannot simply issue the shares and leave the matter with the investors; you need to make an application to HMRC, known as a compliance statement.

While there are complexities to who can apply, the potential benefits are huge. The Hybrid experts know EIS through and through and can assist you from simply explaining how a scheme may work for you, to issuing full compliance certificates for your new investors.

We know exactly what you are thinking.

  • That is going to be costly
  • Solicitors don’t understand our business
  • I do not have time for complex lengthy paperwork
  • There is so much legal jargon I have no idea what is going on.
  • The stress will outweigh the benefits

We want to see you grow

We break it down so you can understand every step of the procedure.

Understanding your business

Many traditional law firms forget this, but it’s the most important step. In order to feel confident that your company can benefit from the scheme, we will need to understand more about your company to ensure you meet the qualifying criteria.

https://www.hybridlegal.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/application-form-icon.svg

HMRC advanced assurance

Before your investors hand over their funds, we will apply to HMRC for advance assurance. This means that we provide HMRC with the vast majority of the information upfront in order for them to provide a determination on if you qualify, this will provide your investors with peace of mind.

https://www.hybridlegal.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/rocket-icon.svg

Receiving the investment

We will need to produce the formal documentation for the receipt of the investment and the allocation of the shares. We can handle this for you and make sure the process is smooth and stress free.

https://www.hybridlegal.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/document-icon.svg

Informing HMRC

While we may have advance assurance, we still need to issue a compliance statement to HMRC to confirm that the information we submitted is correct, and to request that they issue the relevant compliance certificates.

https://www.hybridlegal.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/thumbs-up-icon.svg

Compliance certificates

Once we receive compliance certificates from HMRC we will draft these for each of your shareholders, these will them be forwarded to you for your signature. Once you have signed the certificates they must be sent to the investors.
