The UK economy is in recovery, that much is for sure. Just how much of a recovery, and how sustainable it is, however, are moot points.
What’s certain, though is that the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) has been at the forefront of the government’s attempts to turn things around. EIS has an array of tax benefits designed to tempt individual investors to pour cash into business seeking the lifeblood of capital investment. It’s a risk, of course, to invest directly into small companies, but the government, through the form of fiscal benefits, mitigates that risk.
