Success Story

Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme

Could you be eligible for considerable tax relief under the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)? Here’s how Hallidays helped a client and their investors to make the best use of their £150,000 investment in this interesting scheme...

Benefit to investors

£150,000 invested between two investors under the SEIS sold prior to the year-end per investor for new companies provided £75,000 income tax relief (50%).

One half of up to £100,000 gains per person on other assets are exempt from Capital Gains Tax rate i.e. 14% making effective valuation 28%.

If the project is successful, all proceeds of the SEIS investment are exempt from Capital Gains Tax.

If the project is unsuccessful, investors receive income tax relief of up to 45% of the £75,000 not already recouped. A total tax relief of £129,750 for the £150,000 investment.

Benefit to new company

Research and Development will attract an extra 130% tax relief.

This means that every £100 of expenditure will potentially save £46.00 tax rather than the normal £20.

The company was able to enter the new patent box scheme so profits in the future could have a tax rate as low as 10%.
