The Small Company Enterprise Centre operates the advance assurance scheme for SEIS and EIS tax relief. Companies can submit their plans for funding alongside details of their business. The SCEC will advise whether the company is likely to qualify. This can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, so we recommend applying early. Don’t worry if you haven’t applied yet, you can still launch on Crowdcube with your status set to ‘pending’. We would then need to check you have received advance assurance before collecting payments from investors. You can find more detail on how to apply for SEIS or EIS here.
