Crowdfunding Flow of Funds – International Issuers

I am frequently asked about foreign entities and Regulation CF. Outside of the general prohibition of non-US entities availing themselves of crowdfunding in the US, the common practice has been to create a domestic wholly-owned subsidiary – often referred to as a “Special Purpose Vehicle,” even though the term itself is of no legal meaning or consequence.

Nevertheless, the question becomes how does this domestic entity transfer investor funds to its foreign bank account in local currency. The following schematic should provide a somewhat rough outline of how this can be accomplished.

If you are a foreign issuer seeking to take advantage of the United States’ favorable crowdfunding structure and have questions concerning payment flows, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
