Capital Raising

Raising funds for a new business can be both stressful and time-consuming. Most traditional lenders will not provide funds to new businesses unless property or other substantial security is provided.

Even where this is so, there are certain structures that can confuse a lender and the assistance of a qualified lawyer with experience in lending, capital raising and crowdfunding is helpful to ensure the transaction proceeds smoothly. Alternatives to traditional lending are peer-to-peer lending, offering equity to friends/family and/or crowdfunding.

How we can help

All business owners considering whether they require lending and/or equity investors should seek legal assistance to ensure the arrangements are structured correctly and their interests are protected.

At present, crowdfunding laws are in the process of changing to allow for businesses to offer financial rewards (such as shares in a company) to potential investors.  Until the changes are implemented and ASIC provide licences to the crowdfunding platforms for this new reward structure, all rewards offered by businesses in crowdfunding have to be non-financial.  Businesses must ensure they do not breach the Corporations Act by offering financial rewards to crowdfunding contributors until the laws are changed and licenced platforms exist for this service.
