2. Can startup company founders benefit from SEIS?

30th November 2023

There are certain circumstances in which SEIS can be claimed by company founders, namely when there are three or more founders of a single company. The company must be in its very early stages and the founders must be paid or unpaid directors of the company, but not employees.

A founder aiming to benefit from SEIS should understand that this is a very tricky subject to navigate successfully and should seek advice from a qualified financial professional before incorporating the company.
