I'm interested in projects like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. Basically they are doing the same thing - helps to get money from the people who likes your idea.
So when I'm raising money and asking for the help, of course I promise something to the people who give me the money and I can fulfill that, without a problem, but there are also questions which for me doesn't have clear answer:
- Do I need company registered to be able to get money through pages like those?
- What happens after I raised enough money and collected them, should I worry and pay some taxes additionally to the ones I pay for idiegogo or kickstarter?
- Should I think about hiring professional accountant or lawyer before getting cash to my account to deal with some problems?
- Do those pages require later some documents, papers to prove that I spent money on the thing I promised or after I get money, pay them, they don't care (just asking if I need to deal with them longer than the period to raise money)?
Anyone already did that? Maybe you have some advices?
