If you are considering raising finance for your brewery, you may be interested two government schemes that make investing in growth companies more attractive to investors – thereby making it a good time to raise funds from those investors.
The new Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) allows businesses to raise upto £150K. The actual cost to investors however, can be 50% or less of their investment amount, the other 50% (or more) is reclaimed back by the investor through their tax return.
SEIS is the junior version of the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). EIS offers a similar mechanism for businesses to raise over £150K or if they don’t qualify for SEIS.
Alongside these schemes SIBA member breweries can combine a strong investment pitch with SEIS/EIS incentives to raise equity finance from crowds of people through crowdfunding in a process that can take less than three months.
Crowdfunding is a contemporary online finance option that enables growth businesses to raise equity capital from a crowd of investors. Food & drink crowdfunding specialist, Raisedough works with food & drink businesses to achieve this and we have over 19,000 registered investors waiting to see exciting investment pitches.
