Our partnership with Sapphire

S/EIS Advance Assurance is vital for your round, but can be time consuming to obtain

S/EIS benefits investors by offering potentially significant tax reliefs when they make an investment into an SEIS and/or EIS eligible startup or early-stage company.

Advance Assurance is a provisional opinion provided by HMRC on whether the company meets the SEIS and/or EIS qualifying criteria. Advance Assurance acts as an indication to potential investors that they would be eligible for the SEIS and/or EIS tax reliefs if they were to invest in the company.

Securing Advanced Assurance is not always straightforward though. It can feel confusing and unclear what is needed and in what format, particularly if HMRC come back with multiple questions, which they undoubtedly can! If your business has a more complex structure this will also need to be carefully explained.
