Funding for start-ups

Event Details

Australia is creating a huge start-up ecosystem that needs help to grow and survive. Understanding how start-ups are formed, how they grow, as well as why they fail is crucial.

Funding, whether at the start-up phase or the expansion phase, is often critical to success. In recent years, start-ups have changed the way they seek funding and the government has introduced amendments to existing tax rules and specific tax concessions to assist start-ups looking to grow their business and attract capital.

In this session we will provide an update and explanation on the new crowdfunding laws and what these changes mean for capital raising, your clients and/or your business. We will also discuss tax issues surrounding crowdfunding, new tax incentives for early-stage investors and the newly announced ‘corporate collective investment vehicles’.

Event Details

The Belle Gibson case and the recent review of the ACL remind us that existing consumer protection laws apply to not-for-profits and charities as well as for-profits, including fund raising, contracts, the provision of goods and services and marketing and promotion activity. An organisation and its directors can be prosecuted for breach of these laws. Outcomes vary from financial penalty to the loss of charitable status.

In this session our lawyers will provide a practical examination of the law and how it applies to not-for-profits and charities using real case examples and how to minimise any risk of breach of the law in this area.
