We are enabling British businesses to raise funds from a global audience of investors. Crowd2Fund has opened its platform to investors in 163 different countries to create accounts and invest in UK SMEs.
All investors undergo compliance and security checks, such as anti money laundering, fraud and sanctions. We take photo ID of any investors looking to invest more than £2000. Investors can make investments, receive repayments and withdraw funds via iBan to most countries in the world.
All opportunities listed on the platform undergo our rigorous risk and due diligence checks to ensure that investors get repaid. Opportunities often have a global audience of customers and fans, so our international feature allows said fans to invest. You can learn more about our risk procedures here and about our due diligence here.
Crowd2Fund is directly regulated by the globally respected UK Financial Conduct Authority. All clients' funds are held securely by our client funds manager, who have been granted a Pan-European financial licence.
Two ways to pay in
Crowd2Fund allows investors to make payments using either a debt card or iBan transfer. If a user wishes to withdraw funds, then they are able to do so by using iBan. The funds will be sent to their local bank account.
Repayments from loans are held by our 3rd party client funds manager until the funds are withdrawn.
International investors are required to pay tax as per their home jurisdiction; Crowd2Fund are not liable for an individual’s tax. Tax obligations also depend on the personal circumstances of an investor. Investors should also check with HM Revenue and Customs to ensure that they are not liable to pay UK tax. Investors should check with an accountant to understand the tax requirements before making an investment.
Currently there are no UK tax benefits, such as EIS, SEIS and IFISAS, available for non-UK based individuals.
In certain circumstances, some rewards will not be made available to international investors. For example, sending gifts abroad, should a resident country impose any post restrictions. Perks and rewards offered by UK Businesses remain the same as UK resident investors.
Should a reward not be available to an international investor, then the reward will generally not be shown on the campaign page once the user is logged in.
