When will I get my EIS or SEIS certificate?
Please allow three to four months to receive your tax documentation after making an investment. However, this time may vary depending on the responsiveness of founders and the processing speed of HMRC. There are other administrative requirements placed by HMRC which can also slow the process down.
For example, the business must have been trading for at least four months before we can apply for EIS or SEIS tax relief, so we may need to wait for this period for early-stage companies.
UK taxpayers should note that tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each client and may be subject to change in future. To learn more about how SEIS or EIS works, please read the online HMRC guidance or contact your professional tax advisor.
