55 companies have secured finance for their businesses without having to borrow money from a bank! This is a great achievement in these difficult times for dealing with banks.
The 8 Point Checklist to determine potential eligibility to raise Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising developed by ESS BIZTOOLS highlights the key requisites that an applicant must have:
Phase 1 – Legal Requirements
- Is the company a “small unlisted public company” or a “small/medium-sized proprietary limited company”?
- Is the Company’s “Group Turnover” for the previous twelve months less than $25 million?
- Is the value of “Group Assets” less than $25 million?
- Can you confirm that the company is not listed on a Stock Exchange anywhere in the world?
- Can you confirm that the company is not listed in an official list of a financial market?
Phase 2 – Identification of Clients Who May Be Interested
- Are the Directors interested in expanding the company’s operations?
- Are the Directors interested in purchasing another business?
- Has the company developed a new product, process, technology, organisational or management methodology or undertaken a significant amount of research and development and expenditure in the last twelve months was over $1 million?
Income in the last 12 months was over $200,000
In which case the Company is not eligible to be classified as an Early-Stage Innovation Company (and therefore may be interested in being classified as a Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising Company).
If you have been able to answer “yes” – to questions 1 to 5 and you believe that your client would have an interest in either of questions 6,7 or 8 then your client is potentially qualified to be considering utilising Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising to raise capital direct from the public of up to $5 million in a twelve month period.
Your client could then join the 55 companies that have raised $39.8 million in the start-up period from February 2018 to 31 October 2019.
The 55 companies that have successfully completed their capital raising participate in 37 different types of industry activities – thus clearly identifying that Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising is suitable for a very wide range of business activities.
