Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising Due Diligence Reviews

The Australian Parliament passed significant amendments to the Corporations Act on 12th September 2018 to enable private companies to be able to raise capital from the public.  We expect that Crowd Sourced Funding Equity Raising will be a major growth industry from now on.  The opportunity to utilise Crowd Source Funding Equity Raising has been welcomed by many small/medium enterprise operators.  The team at Towers Business Development Pty Ltd can assist a small/medium enterprise organisation to prepare to be admitted as an eligible Crowd Sourced Funding Company.

Crowd Sourced Funding Companies can raise up to $5 million every 12-months, but there is a very strict process that they have to go through to be able to raise capital in this way.

We utilise material developed by our associated business ESS BIZTOOLS to track the capital raising process from the very beginning to when the company is able to finalise capital raising including:

  • Articles explaining “Crowd Source Funding Equity Raising”.
  • An overview of the requirements that companies have to satisfy, if they are going to be accepted as a company eligible to seek the Crowd Sourced Funding Status.
  • Commentary on the requirements for the preparation of a Crowd Sourced Funding Offer Document.
  • Commentary on the role to be performed by a Crowd Sourced Funding Intermediary.
  • Information on the documentation required to be able to raise capital including:
    • market document
    • marketing plan
    • business plan
    • budget and cashflow forecast
    • business valuation
    • determining the amount of capital to be raised and the percentage of shares to be allocated to investors
    • identification of persons to be invited to become directors
  • Negotiations with potential Crowd Sourced Funding Intermediaries.
  • Overview of the Crowd Sourced Funding Intermediary’s “platform requirements”.
  • Review of “retail investor protection” incorporated within the legislation.
