How it worksInvestors need to initially fill out an online form. Upon the pitch hitting its target amount legal paperwork as well as documentation will be completed and the money will be taken from the investors account and directly credited to the investees account. Crowdcube is not allowed to hold client money. Crowdcube acts either as an agent or as nominee. If the investment is successful the investor will become direct legal shareholder in the company.
Fees Investors: no fees Entrepreneurs: basic fee of 5% total investment raised (on deal completion), GoCardless fee of 0.5% or 2.4% Stripe fee + 20p per transaction and legal fee of £2,500 (includes Administration and Corporate Services)
What happens if I change my mind?Investors can cancel their pledged investments at any time before the target amount of a pitch is reached. Once the target amount is reached, the investor will be emailed a copy of the adopted Articles of Association of the issuer and given seven working days to review them. During this period an investor can still edit or withdraw their investment if they wish.
What happens if the platform fails?Crowdcube does not hold client money or assets. There would be no impact on investors other than the fact that live pitches, to which some may have committed, would not be able to complete.
