It is always a good idea to ensure that all financial checks are fully completed to avoid falling foul of fraudsters and UK finance/investment laws. When receiving monies you must ensure the source is legitimate and not from money laundering activities.
When investing money it is essential you use a reliable and well informed investment solicitor before committing to any contract that can for example, vet how accurate the information you have received is, and can check if the documents/information produced is credible – unfortunately there are many scams in existence.
An investment solicitor will be able to provide you with advice for any financial transaction you as business partner/director or individual need to make. Perhaps you wish to buy shares in small companies that are seeking investment money to develop the company by share issues under the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) or as a business owner you might seek guidance on whether your company may qualify for the scheme. For individual investors and small/medium-sized companies needing to raise money, EIS can offer financial benefits in terms of tax and cheaper ways of raising capital. Our solicitors can advise you on the current legislation of the scheme.
