Need investment? These HMRC schemes make your business more attractive

If you are looking for investment in your business, you will know that many investors are seeking to place funds under SEIS and EIS (Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme and Enterprise Investment Scheme), which offer highly attractive tax relief incentives on their investment.

Advanced Assurance from HMRC will show investors that your business qualifies under these schemes and thus make it a more attractive investment, but a recent tightening of rules around issuing this Advanced Assurance leaves businesses with a dilemma:
