In case you missed it: August 2023
This month, search on SeedLegals went live, all your option holders were combined onto one table and we updated our docu...
In September, we added more discounts to SeedLegals Plus, made it possible to create RDEC claims on the app and improved our search function so you can find what you need more easily. Read on to find out more about these updates and what’s coming soon.
One of our top priorities at SeedLegals is to give our Plus subscribers the most out of their membership. In September, we released an update that gives Plus subscribers more flexibility and value for money.
Now, when you subscribe to SeedLegals Plus, you get:
You can claim one of each of the above offers per year. For example, if you claim your free Advance Assurance and £100 off a SeedFAST, when your subscription renews the following year, you’ll get the choice again to access free Advance Assurance or Compliance and £100 off SeedFAST or Instant Investment.
🤯There’ll be more exciting stuff to come for Plus in October, read more about it in coming soon.
You can now easily create claims for both SME and RDEC schemes on SeedLegals 😄
The context 🤔
There are two R&D tax relief schemes UK companies can claim from: SME and RDEC.
The SME scheme is for startups and small business that:
RDEC is typically intended for larger companies (over 500 employees), but SMEs who have received any sort of grant or subsidy for their R&D may need to make their claim either partly (known as a hybrid claim) or fully under the RDEC scheme. You could also claim from RDEC if you’re doing R&D as subcontractor to a larger business.
The update 🚀
Up until now, you could only create a claim for the SME scheme on SeedLegals. However, we had an influx of customers this year who needed to make RDEC or hybrid claims. We helped these customers create their claims manually, while working on an automated solution in the background.
And now it’s live 🙌 so you can easily create SME, RDEC and hybrid claims on SeedLegals.
We’ve improved our search function, so you can access what you need more quickly and easily 🔎
You can easily toggle between Team, Documents, Products and Help Centre articles in the search feature, as seen below.
As usual, our team is hard at work on many different projects. Here’s a peek of what’s coming soon.
In October, we’re launching our first Plus Newsletter and PlusConnect community event. Subscribers to our Plus plan will get:

We’re simplifying your funding costs 🥳
Soon, you’ll only need to pay one fee when you raise with SeedLegals, regardless of how many products you used for the raise.
For example, if you raise £250,000 using a SeedFAST for £100,000 and funding round for £150,000, you will only pay a once-off fee for the £250,000 you’re raising, rather than paying fees for each funding product separately. There will be no minimum fees for the agile funding products (SeedFAST and Instant Investment) when using Flex.
Flex applies to SeedFAST, Bootstrap and Seed Rounds, SeedNOTE, Instant Investment and Instant Conversion.
