Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) are designed to help a company raise money when it’s starting to trade. It does this by offering tax reliefs to individual investors who buy new shares in your company. [1] [2]

You can get tax relief by investing in newly issued shares - or by loaning money to a social enterprise (through a debt instrument) for SITR.

You may not be eligible for tax relief so be sure to verify.[3]
