Most UK start-ups on crowdfunding platforms are part of EIS or SEIS programs. You can get 30%-50% of your invested money back from HMRC.
Don’t leave money on the table.
Make your investments as usual on crowdfunding platforms such as Seedrs or Crowdcube
After 4 months companies you invested in will issue you a SEIS/EIS3 certificate.
Using our simple online tool we’ll claim your SEIS/EIS rebate and if needed also prepare your tax return.
SEIS & EIS programs are designed by HMRC to de-risk investors. They offer multiple benefits, claiming back income tax is just one of them.
You don’t get the tax benefits automatically. You have to claim them individually or process them as part of your tax return. We can do it for you.
Most companies raising funds on crowdfunding platforms are eligible for EIS (30% relief) or SEIS (50% relief). They’ll send your certificates to prove your investment.
You can claim the tax relief if you invested in the business as an individual. You must be UK tax resident and pay your taxes in UK either through employment or self-employment.
