The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) are both designed to help smaller and typically higher-risk trading companies raise finance by offering a range of tax reliefs to investors who purchase new shares in these companies.

Investing in early-stage businesses is highly risky, and investors should be prepared for the eventually of no return of capital. Therefore, an Investor should only invest in the Fund if the Investor can withstand a total loss of their Paid in Capital.

Shares in unquoted companies are illiquid. This means you cannot withdraw your investment once committed. You will only receive proceeds if the underlying companies are successfully sold. Not all companies will be sold at all, or for a profit.

Applications to invest should only be submitted once you have read the full Information Memorandum, in particular the section covering risks and fees.

A MICAP review is an independant report undertaken by an in-house team of analyst. The reviews typically consist of a 20 to 25 page document that sets out the key areas that financial advisers should consider when looking to invest in a fund.
