To Offer 30% Tax Credit to New BC Investors 

Vancouver, British Columbia – Healthy Crowdfunder Corp (“HCC”) is pleased to announce that the Company has been registered (Registration No. 30965) as an Eligible Business Corporation (EBC) under section 28.2 of The Province of British Columbia’s Small Business Venture Capital Act.

The Equity Authorization will allow HCC to raise equity capital directly from eligible Investors   who are BC residents or taxable corporations. Individuals who purchase shares of HCC are eligible to receive a refundable tax credit equal to 30% of their investment amount, up to a maximum of $60,000 in credits per taxation year. Corporations may only deduct the tax credits from their BC taxes otherwise payable under the BC Income Tax Act. There is no annual limit on the tax credit for corporations; however, the credits are non-refundable.

The 30% tax credits are offered on a first come – first serve basis, as part of a limited government allocation and it is expected that they will be fully allocated by the end of October 2013. Investments in Healthy Crowdfunder are also fully RRSP eligible.  A BC resident investing $10,000 and transferring the securities to his RRSP at the top marginal rate is saving $7,370 for a net investment of $2,630.

CEO Antonio Arias noted: “The BC Venture Capital Act is a progressive program allowing us to develop and offer our crowdfunding and crowdsourcing services to the huge healthcare ventures in the US and Canada. The completion of the platform will facilitate the introduction of members – health ventures, investors, service providers, and customers – resulting in more efficient flow of capital and other resources. Technology is advancing at exponential rate. The traditional ways of doing business are being replaced by more intelligent and economic systems delivering faster results. Various sectors in healthcare market can benefit the most as the world’s ageing population continues to rise.”

We are very grateful to Rachelle Kallechy, Portfolio Manager and Jeff Lindsay, Executive Director of the BC Investment Capital Branch for all their efforts to qualify us for this special program of the Ministry of International Trade. When authorized for $1 Million, it is akin to the BC government investing $300,000 towards technology business and job creations. One of our plans is to develop an accelerator in Vancouver similar to RockHealth (San Francisco) and StartUp Health (New York).
