Key benefits for your business
1. Shareholder portal
2. Nominee voting and consents
We are very conscious that the founders and management of a company are the people who have the requisite knowledge, skills and expertise to run and grow the business – and investors will have invested in their ability to do so. This is why when it comes to voting, we will support the board of directors’ proposal unless there is reason to believe that it would not be in the best interest of investors to do so.
When considering what would be in the best interest of investors, our key concerns are to
(a) maximise return in the long term for investors, and
(b) ensure that investors are being treated equitably.
3. Tax relief
If your business is eligible for SEIS or EIS tax reliefs in the UK, we will take care of all of the paperwork for the application of relief and distribute the confirmation certificates to your investors once approved by HMRC to allow them to claim the tax relief.
We also provide them with a tax statement which they can download to cover the details needed for the claim across all their investments on Seedrs.
