澳大利亚将股权众筹列为金融发展计划首要任务

澳大利亚政府近日针对金融体系调查作出回应,同时表示要开展股权众筹。这项期待已久的政府举措属于澳大利亚经济部门创新计划的一部分。

澳大利亚将于今年年底出台针对股权众筹的相关文件,把股权众筹当做首要的发展对象,并且还会向早期投资者提供资金支持。

澳大利亚在众筹投资领域早有涉及,这主要归功于ASSOB的领先作用,这个平台已经为早期的公司筹集到了1.44亿美元。澳大利亚近来的规则相对放宽了限制,让更多企业也有接触股权众筹的机会。在新规则的影响下,几个新的平台会相继成立。

政府表示他们会同时对债务类众筹展开调研。

众筹的税收状况仍是一个重要问题。本月初发表在Lexology上的一篇报告称,澳大利亚政府之前对股权众筹的关注度不够。本届政府在2010年10月份参与竞选时就承诺要针对该国经济体系进行整改。财务部长Scott Morrison及中小企业部长Kelly O'Dwyer最近做出回应,终于开启了这项长跑决策的制定过程。政府声明了金融对澳大利亚公民的重要性——作为澳洲经济的主要构成部分,金融业去年累计贡献了1390亿美元,并为近40万的澳大利亚公民解决了就业问题。

综合议程大概主要包括下面的因素:

增强经济体系弹力;

提高养老机制效率;

促进金融体系创新;

保证金融产品消费者公平,加强监管力度、完善问责制度。

澳大利亚政府相信创新是刺激今后经济的关键因素。监管者们也把促进创业看做增加就业和促进经济发展的关键因素。

The Australian government revealed its response to the financial systems inquiry today and buried within the document was provisioning for "crowd-sourced equity crowdfunding ". The long anticipated move by the government is part of the innovation agenda in the financial sector.

Final guidelines for equity crowdfunding are anticipated before the end of the year. The document called equity crowdfunding an "urgent priority" and one that was dearly needed to "support the funding needs of early stage innovators".

Australia was an early innovator in the investment crowdfunding space with the advent of ASSOB, a platform that has raised over $144 million for early stage companies to date. The recent rule making push has been designed to ease and liberalize current regulations to make equity crowdfunding more accessible to a wider audience. Several new platforms are poised to leverage forthcoming rules.

The government stated that a review regarding debt based crowdfunding will be conducted simultaneously.

Questions remain as to the tax status of crowdfunding and is an outstanding item. In a report earlier this month published on Lexology, the statement was made that there has been minimal focus on the taxation treatment of equity crowdfunding.

The current government made an election promise to review the entire Australian financial system back in October of 2010. The most recent response, led by Treasurer Scott Morrison and Minister for Small Business Kelly O'Dwyer, is another step in what has been a long policy-making journey. The statement by the government notes the overall importance of finance to Australian citizens as it is the largest sector of industry in the Aussie economy having contributed $139 billion over the past year and employing approximately 4040,000 Australians.

The outlined agenda is based on the following parameters;

strengthen the resilience of the financial system;

improve the efficiency of the superannuation system;

stimulate innovation in the financial system;

support consumers of financial products being treated fairly; and

strengthen regulator capabilities and accountability.

The government believes innovation is key to a robust future economy. Policy makers see facilitating entrepreneurship as vital for job creation and economic growth.
