Tax Tinkering Ahead? A Look At EIS And IFISAs Before The Budget




Amid speculation that tax incentives will be tinkered with in the coming Budget, City A.M. highlights four companies that wouldn't exist without the Enterprise Investment Scheme.

While EIS and SEIS offer meaningful tax advantages to investors, it's important to remember that their main function is to help kickstart new businesses and ventures.As the independent trade body for the EIS and SEIS industry, our core aim at the EIS Association is to help small and medium-sized enterprises obtain the funding that they need to grow, which also helps drive our economy forward.
