Enterprise Investment Scheme

The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is designed to help smaller companies in the UK raise finance by offering a range of significant tax relief to investors who purchase their shares. These include Income Tax Relief, Capital Gains Tax benefits and additional relief if the shares are sold at a loss.
