Government backed tax schemes such as SEIS and EIS are available to assist a business or individual wishing to invest in a company like Brideg Biotec. Read more below.
Seed Enterprise Investment Schemes (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS) are schemes designed to encourage investment in small or medium sized companies. They offer tax relief to individual investors who buy new shares in the company. Small companies whilst being higher risk can grow very quickly and have the potential for large returns.
The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme was set up in 2012 and is very similar to EIS but was designed for investing in even smaller companies, and providing even more generous tax breaks.
The maximum workforce and gross assets allowable under EIS are 250 staff and £15 million respectively, SEIS has lower limits of 50 staff and £200,000 gross assets. Businesses must also be less than two years old (there are no age restrictions under EIS).
SEIS tax breaks are as follows:

If you invest through an angel investor network or an equity crowdfunding website, they should be able to help with the paperwork to access your EIS or SEIS benefits.
