Frequently asked questions

What is a fundraising company?

A fundraising company typically serves two purposes: either the company raises funds from investors or it holds assets (or both). Therefore, it has to have a fundable type of entity (preferably shares) that investors would feel comfortable investing in and one that supports common investment instruments like the convertible SAFE or other investment agreements.ย 

How is a fundraising company different from other types of companies?ย 

When compared to an operating company, two differences can be noted:ย 

  • Fundraising companies (also known as holding companies) don't provide services or sell goodsย 
  • Fundraising / holding companies hold IP and other assets

Note that, sometimes, an operating company and a fundraising company can be the same entity.

How much does it cost to register a fundraising company via Legal Nodes?

The costs to register a company will include the cost of the Growth Plan subscription (starting from $899 a month) and the cost of the service provided by our partner, the registered agent (from $200 depending on the country) working on your legal tasks.

What support is included in the subscription if I want to register a company via Legal Nodes?

Youโ€™ll receive the following under the subscription:

  • Guidance on choosing the best jurisdiction and/or entity
  • Guidance on filling out the registration forms and questionnaires
  • Access to the right professional service provider for each company registration task
  • Long-term strategy support including explorations into the different ways that the company can be utilized in the future
Aside from the subscription, what else do I need to pay for?

You will have to pay the cost of the company registration, which will be paid directly to the service provider. You may also have to pay for additional services such as accountancy, tax filings, nominee director, and secretary services are all available as add-ons that can be purchased as and when needed.

How much time does it take to register a company via Legal Nodes?

This depends on the location, so it may take from 2 to 6 weeks to complete registration.ย 

We will provide an exact time estimate for each company registration task that will be undertaken via your Legal Nodes subscription.
