What does the funding landscape look like for scaling businesses? Listen to this podcast episode to learn more about the different sources of funding and tax reliefs available for high growth businesses.

In this episode we look at the funding landscape for scaling businesses.  While venture investment is perhaps the most well-known, there are other alternatives such as crowdfunding and peer-to-peer lending that could be a better option for your business. 


Nina Searle and Andrew Jennings are joined by Jonathan Keeling, Partnerships Director at Crowdcube and colleague Vicky Carr, Legal Director in TLT's Tax team to take a detailed look at everything you need to know about crowdfunding and the tax reliefs available as a scale-up business.

In this conversation you’ll learn:

  • What types of funding are available for scale-up businesses like yours, and what you should think about when choosing a funding option.
  • What crowdfunding is, what types of businesses are ideally suited to it, and how to prepare for a successful crowdfunding raise.
  • What tax reliefs are available for your investors and how to comply with the requirements of both the SEIS and EIS schemes.

The panel also answer some of the most commonly asked questions and share their experiences to help you as you take the next steps on your funding journey.

Whatever your business goals, this series will give you the insights you need to stay on course to achieve them.

If you are interested in crowdfunding, you can find out more at Crowdcube and you can reach Jonathan Keeling via LinkedIn.
