Abstract

The Corporations Amendment (Crowd-sourced Funding) Act 2017 (Cth) allows 'eligible CSF companies' to access crowd-sourced equity funding ('CSF') provided they meet the threshold eligibility requirements, they pass both the 'assets test' and the 'turnover test', the amount they seek falls within the 'issuer cap', the funds are raised through a CSF intermediary and their 'CSF offer document' and, if it is not included in the 'CSF offer document', their 'CSF offer' meet the requirements of the Act. Uniquely, among measures to assist innovative start-ups to access funding the Act provides no taxation incentives or concessions. The paper examines the likely problems this may pose for the Act achieving its aims.
