Raising funds in Australia

Which companies can raise funds in Australia?

Public companies (ie those with more than 50 non-employee shareholders) can raise funds from the general public by issuing securities.
Private companies (ie 'proprietary limited' companies that have no more than 50 non-employee shareholders) can raise funds:

  • from existing shareholders and employees of the company or a subsidiary company, and
  • from the general public if the fundraising does not require a disclosure document.
