If you submitted your SEIS Advance Assurance application many weeks ago and are wondering what’s going on, or you have a burning questions regarding the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme or the Enterprise Investment Scheme, you are no doubt wanting to contact HMRC.
HM Revenue & Customs have a separate department that deals with all things SEIS/EIS called the Small Company Enterprise Centre (SCEC).
Historically, the SCEC have been slow to reply and extremely hard to make contact with, but that’s primarily down to the amount of advance assurance applications they receive. Hopefully the change that was introduced in January 2018 to advance assurance will make HMRC’s workload more manageable.
So How Can you Get in touch?
SEIS/EIS HMRC Telephone Number
Telephone Number: 0300 1231083
You can’t speak to an individual, but HMRC have an answerphone system where you can leave a message and they’ll call you back.
