GF004 – Get Funded! Podcast | SEIS | Get ready to slice the pie!

Get funded!In this 4th episode of the Get Funded! podcast we cover:

“Get ready to slice the pie!”

This show is all about the need to issue shares in return for a cash investment if it is to be eligible for SEIS or EIS under current rules.

We also cover what doesn’t qualify e.g. loans, and some tips around types of shares and nominal values of shares to help you get the SEIS share capital structure right from the outset.

GF003 – Get Funded! podcast – What are the key tax benefits of SEIS?

Get funded!In this 3rd episode of the Get Funded! podcast we explore the key tax benefits of the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) including:

  • 50% income tax relief
  • potential for 14% capital gains tax shelter
  • IHT exemption after 2 years
  • CGT free sale after 3 years
  • Sideways income tax relief should the startup fail

All in all this can amount to up to 86.5% tax shelter for the investor so only 13.5% capital may be at risk.

GF002 – Why should SEIS matter to my startup?

Get funded!In Episode 2 of the Get Funded! podcast we cover:

  • why and how SEIS is becoming so popular?
  • why many business angels and seasoned investors will expect you to have considered SEIS?
  • an outline of the tax benefits that SEIS provides for investors
  • why you might be at a disadvantage pitching for investment without SEIS?

GF001 Get Funded! – What is SEIS?

Get funded!We are thrilled to announce the launch of a new podcast: “Get Funded!”

A podcast that aims to share practical information and tips on the workings of the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) with entrepreneurs, CEOs and founders.

I am afraid that there is little in terms of bells and whistles in terms of the podcast production at this stage (maybe that’ll come later ;) ), as we are more concerned with getting the information and tips out there as quickly as possible and exploring whether this might be a more digestable medium than text….

Let us know your comments and thoughts.

In this first “Get Funded!” podcast we cover:

  • what is SEIS?
  • who benefits from SEIS?
  • which companies is SEIS aimed at?
  • why is SEIS necessary?

This first podcast is really just an initial primer – we will aim to keep them as short and as easy to digest as possible.
