Investments are risky, someone is taking a gamble with their money. So it’s not surprising that investors look for any upsides that may counter the risks.
The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) are government approved incentives, based on reducing an investors tax burden – which encourages them to invest in early stage, high risk businesses, which my otherwise be over looked.
