Equity Crowdfuning in the UK continues to be boosted by a favourable tax environment. An estimated 96% of all investment opportunities on crowdfunding platforms are in the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or its sister scheme, the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS)
This is nothing new. Syndicate Room's Goncalo de Vasconcelos is a long standing enthusiast, Jeff Lynn, CEO of Seedrs, was saying the same thing two years ago. And in the light of the Chancellor introduced new pension rules, the EIS and SEIS schemes are looking attractive to a whole new range of investors.
The UK is very fortunate to have such a supportive regime for early stage equity investment.
