This webinar introduces you to the notion of raising funds for your company through equity (shareholders) or debt. Choosing debt finance vs equity depends on commercial factors- interest rates, tax implications, liquidity, cash flow, market conditions and costs to raise capital. An overview of what is required to raise equity finance is presented, with a focus on small companies and the limitations. In addition, considerations of raising finance through debt will also be canvassed, noting that the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) , imposes obligations on company borrowings.
Webinar Learning Outcomes:
• To understand the relationship b/w secured finance and corporate fundraising rules
• To be aware of the disclosure obligations involved in corporate fundraising activities
• To gain an overview of equity fundraising, the rules and limitations
Small business owners looking to incorporate, accountants and directors of small to large proprietary companies, as well as unlisted public companies.
