2. Can startup company founders benefit from SEIS?
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.
