Frequently asked questions

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding allows us to receive investment from our customers as well as institutional investors via a dedicated online portal. Our crowdfunding campaign is part of a larger funding round and gives our customers and community the opportunity to invest on the same terms as institutional investors and share in our future success.

By investing in us you will own shares in our business.

 

Do I get shares in the company?

Yes, every investor will receive shares in Equipsme Holdings Limited. The number of shares you receive will be proportionate to the amount that you invest. The final number of shares issued will be dependent upon the final number of investors and amount of money raised.

 

Are there rewards?

Yes, as well as shares in Equipsme Holdings Limited, investors may also be entitled to a selection of exclusive rewards as an additional perk for investing. These will be disclosed in our business plan.

 

What will you do with the money?

This round of investment will be used to accelerate our growth by investing in our product development and marketing.

 

Can the shares I buy be traded / can I sell my shares at a later date?

We are a private limited company, and in common with all such companies, at present there is no public forum for buying and selling shares in the company. Shares may be bought and sold by private arrangement, however, you must first offer them to other shareholders before transferring them to a single third party at your own expense.

 

Are you likely to have a future share buyback scheme?

This is a possibility, and it is a circumstance in which you could sell your shares.

 

Will there be any other incentives or tax relief ?

Yes. Your investment would qualify for tax relief under HMRC’s Enterprise Investment Scheme. This means that you may be eligible to claim up to 30% of your investment back in the form of income tax relief. Your investment will also be exempt from capital gains tax and inheritance tax. Please note that EIS is only available to eligible UK taxpayers and you should consult your tax advisor.

 

Do you have a business plan?

Yes we have a business plan which will be made available to those who pre-register interest in investing.

 

How will I make a return on my investment?

This is a long term investment in a fast growing company. We anticipate that the value of your investment will increase over time, giving you capital growth. The main way that you can make money from your investment is by selling your shares for more than you paid for them.

We are a private limited company, and our shares are therefore not publicly traded at present. In the event of a future sale of the company you would be able to sell your shares at that stage to the acquiring company. Alternatively, if the business grows to a point where the company management/further institutional investors offer to buy back, you are also likely to be able to sell your shares.
