EIS rules and benefits for investors explained
Invest in EIS-eligible companies to get generous tax relief. We set out the rules and benefits for investors.
You’re a VC or fund. You’d like to invest in a startup and either the founder has said they want to use SeedLegals for their round, or you’ve heard about us and want to try our services yourself. In this article, we’ll explain how you can use Seedlegals for your investments and also answer other frequently asked questions.
SeedLegals is the leading legaltech platform where founders and investors come to close a funding round. You and the founder agree the terms of your investment deal, select them on the platform and we build all the commercial and legal docs instantly.
Our intuitive workflow and guide text make every step simple, and our customer support team are close at hand if you or your investee need any further support.
Quick intro to SeedLegals
Yes. We’re not a law firm, but our extremely experienced legal team creates and reviews all the documentation available at SeedLegals. They’re also on-hand to assist with wording, deal points or unforeseen complications as and when needed.
We do separately offer a funding round advisory service for larger, more complex rounds. This gives you a bank of hours with a qualified lawyer who can give you specific legal advice on your round. Get in touch at email@example.com to see if your round is eligible.
Does SeedLegals have professional indemnity insurance?
Yes, our PII covers claims up to £2 million.
No – our automated workflows speed up the back and forth in any funding round. More seed deals take place in the UK than later-stage rounds, and our customer data reflects that. But we also support many larger rounds of £1M+ and Series A and beyond.
We currently support the UK, France, Hong Kong, Singapore, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
If you’re keen to save yourself – and your investees – time and money when drafting and reviewing legal documents, SeedLegals is the place to do your deal.
