EIS & SEIS
EIS offers significant tax incentives to investors in shares of smaller companies, such as 30% Income Tax relief on making an investment and potential Capital Gains Tax free disposals. It is a real incentive for companies seeking outside finance and investors because it makes investing so much more attractive.
Nyman Libson Paul have been involved with numerous EIS capital raises at every level from structuring, advising, obtaining advance assurances from HM Revenue and Customs as well as facilitating the scheme and obtaining investors’ certificates.
From April 2012 it is anticipated that the amount any company can raise in a 12 month period will increase substantially from the current level of £2 million up to £10 million, thereby increasing the number of businesses that may be attracted.
EIS is available across most types of business, subject to certain rules and conditions and, in particular, has been keenly embraced by independent filmmakers in recent years. We have assisted clients with EIS share issues in many different industries over a number of years and consequently we have become a leading firm in the area.
Nyman Libson Paul is a member of EISA (The EIS Association). We are also able to advise and assist in the production of Share Offer Documents (AKA Information Memorandums or ‘brochures’) which are subject to the provisions of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. Such documents may be subject to authorisation and Nyman Libson Paul is able to advise and assist in this area.
We are able to offer an integrated service when it comes to EIS and Share Offer Documents as many clients are able to testify.
