In order to be eligible for tax deductions, regardless of the date of payment of the investment, the deed of filing of the capital increase with the Companies Register is decisive. Investors are therefore registered in the shareholders' register by the company that raised the capital at the end of the campaign, after they have actually collected the money raised. The companies themselves will send the necessary certification to the Investors who participated in the collection.

Equity crowdfunding follows a time-based criterion, priority is given to those who have joined first, provided that the payment of the order </strong > is received in the escrow account designated for the offer within 14 calendar days from the date of joining. Therefore, make sure that you make the payment on time, you can always exercise your right of withdrawal and you will receive your refund without any costs.

If you joined when the maximum target had already been exceeded, you will remain on the waiting list. You will be able to join if a previous investor does not make a payment on time.

In the case of overfunding and exceeding the maximum target, the offering company may extend the capital increase by setting a new amount. This allows the company to raise more investment than expected and to accept orders already received and initially excluded.

In the event of a change in the offer, if you are an investor who joined before the maximum target was reached, you will have the right to revoke your order by making a written request to the platform within 7 (calendar) days of the change. You will find the new documents governing the new conditions in the company's online profile.

If the campaign does not reach the minimum quota, the amount paid will be returned to you at no cost.

  • at least 5% if the offeror is an innovative startup.
  • at least 3% if the offeror is a small and medium-sized enterprise in possession of the certification of the financial statements and of the consolidated financial statements, if any, relating to the last 2 financial years preceding the offer, drawn up by an auditor or an auditing company registered in the register of auditors.

Offerors

From the moment the contract is signed to the launch of the campaign online, it takes approximately 3-4 weeks during which the Offeror must complete all bureaucratic and administrative requirements of the platform.

The online offer has a standard duration of 60 days, but it is also possible to provide offers with a longer duration, depending on the needs of the company, up to an additional 30 days. In addition to the duration of the offer, an additional 10-15 days post-campaign for the receipt of the raised capital should be considered.

The success of a campaign depends on many factors, from the quality of the proposed business to the quality of the presentation. To launch an optimal offer, it is necessary to:

  • explain their product well, their strengths in relation to a well-framed target market, how they believe they will be successful in selling the product/service, how and when an investor would potentially earn money.
  • present a neat and comprehensive media kit and plan the communication activities to be carried out before and during the campaign. 2meet2biz also supports the offering companies in these phases, but it is essential, at all times, to involve the management team for the business side and its community for the media relaunch (users/subscribers/business angels/possible investors).

At the end of the campaign, in the event of a successful campaign, the investors will be registered by the company as new members at the Company Registry in the city where the company is based. Once the campaign has been completed, the company will send them a certificate of registration as new shareholders.
