How can I qualify as a Knowledge Intensive Company for EIS?

Knowledge Intensive Companies get extended EIS benefits - here's how to meet the requirements.

The key rules for applying for EIS as a Knowledge Intensive Company (KIC) are all found within our guide to KIC criteria

Generally speaking, it's best not to apply as a KIC unless you absolutely need to rely on one of the benefits. (As you can always apply later). 

If you do need to rely on KIC status, then it's best to attach a separate letter, detailing how you meet the requirements listed in our article above. You may need to attach financials, employee profiles, and patent records.
