EISA works with the Government, HM Treasury and HMRC to set policy on EIS and SEIS regulation.
EISA also provides members with the opportunity to feedback their views on existing policy to Government through round table discussions and acting as a collective voice on white papers and consultations
EISA collaborates with other trade bodies which support investment into SMEs including:
- BVCA (British Venture Capital Association)
- AIC (Association of Investment Companies)
- ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales)
- UKBAA (UK Business Angels Association)
