The following Corporation Tax guidance note Produced by Tolley provides comprehensive and up to date tax information covering:

The rules which determine whether a company is qualifying for EIS broadly cover:
the kind of company
the amount of money it can raise
how and when the money raised is used in the trade
the type of activities carried on by the company
ITA 2007, ss 172, 180
Note that a sunset clause for EIS income tax relief has been introduced. This ensures that income tax relief will no longer be given to subscriptions made on or after 6 April 2025, unless the legislation is renewed by Treasury Order.
Certain conditions must be met by the issuing company if it is to be a qualifying company for the purposes of EIS. Detail on all the conditions can be found in Simon’s Taxes, but a summary of the key points is provided below.
