The risk is assessed based on the evaluation algorithm approved in the PROFITUS platform. The algorithm consists of evaluating the project owner’s creditworthiness, project risk assessment, and appraisal of the pledged property. Risk is counted and appreciated by team members who have many years of experience in real estate. Also, in order to objectively assess the project, project owner data is checked in various registries, for example, CreditInfo and other sources.
If you are investing as a natural person, the earned interest is classified as B-Class income, which you must declare in Form GPM308 and its annex “Taxable Income”. You must pay 15% of the PIT (personal income tax) from this income. We will submit your required data to the State Tax Inspectorate on interest received during the calendar year.
All additional questions will be answered by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone +37063760776."
Your investment is secured by pledging real estate, as well as by other collaterals (e.g., indemnity or warranty). Different projects have different security tools that you can access in self-service for each project.
According to the payment schedule, the project owner pays the specified amounts on a regular basis to the PAYSERA account. When the contract expires, you will be refunded the total amount invested together with the interest paid during the contract period, for example, you invested 1,000 euros. According to the payment schedule, you receive 10 euros per month. If the contract period is 12 months, then you earn 120 euros (10 x 12 = 120 euros). The amount you can earn can be calculated here. Upon expiration of the contract, you will also be refunded 1,000 euros.
You can find all your investment information online at My projects.
Your earnings on the PROFITUS platform depend on the amount invested and the risk and profitability of the project. Calculator can always be used to assess the possible earnings. You will always see all information on your investments on the self-service of the PROFITUS platform.
Each project offers different income, which you will see in the payment schedule. You will also find a term according to which the project owner will pay you regular contributions.
If provided for in the contract signed between the PROFITUS and the project owner, it is possible. In most cases, the project owner will not be able to extend the loan repayment term. If the term of the loan is extended, we will inform you without delay using the contacts specified. Of course, we always strive for maximum benefits for investors.
Having failed to collect the total amount of funding within the planned period, we will return you for the entire amount invested before the end of the next day. The probability that this will happen is very poor. So, in this case you will not lose anything.
The borrower is encouraged to fulfil the obligations undertaken, according to the predetermined rules. If one or several payments are not performed within the prescribed period of time, a collection process will be initiated. You will be informed about the course of this process, according to the details that are provided. For more information, please see here.
Remember that your investments will be protected with collateral. In the case of delayed payments, a collection process from the assets will be initiated and this means that the real estate will be sold and the investments will be repaid to you."
Investment means risk; otherwise we would not earn anything. To evaluate the risks, you can familiarise yourself with them in our separate document „Investment risks“.
As all our projects are secured by collateral, a complete loss of the investment is practically impossible. However, investing always involves a risk of losing a share of the investment.
Before investing, be sure to familiarise yourself with the investment risks, examine the details of the particular project, calculate the return on the investment, and then only invest in it. It’s important to understand that you are responsible for your investment decisions.
The borrower is encouraged to fulfil the obligations undertaken, according to the predetermined rules. If one or several payments are not performed within the prescribed period of time, a collection procedure will be initiated: a writ of execution will be obtained from a notary, which will be passed to a bailiff for enforcement. The bailiff will then pursue the recovery of funds from the collateral.
If the collateral is insufficient for the recovery, the bailiff will further pursue the recovery of the investment from the other assets owned by the project owner.
If the funds are still insufficient to cover the investment and the expenses incurred by Profitus, insolvency proceedings (bankruptcy proceedings, consideration of raising the question of liability of the shareholders or the manager) will be initiated, provided that there is has been the possibility of bad management or an intentionally provoked insolvency.
For more information, please refer to our Procedure for Debt Collection.
During bankruptcy proceedings, the interests of investors are protected by the value of the collateral, i.e. regardless of the number of creditors, the proceeds from the sale of the collateral, after a deduction of the costs of the insolvency administrator, will be allocated to serve the interests of the investors.
If the collateral is insufficient, the investors will join the general queue of creditors and their claims will be satisfied according to the standard procedure, i.e. they will be third in the queue (firstly – employees, secondly – state tax claims, thirdly – all other creditors).
In the case of restructuring, the creditor claims will be satisfied according to a recovery plan containing the terms and modes of the real estate sale, and payments will be drawn up by the debtor and approved by the creditors. As in the case of bankruptcy, the proceeds from the sale of the collateral will be allocated to satisfy the interests of the investors, regardless of the number of creditors in the company. If the collateral is insufficient, the remaining claims will be satisfied according to the payment plan that is drawn up in accordance with the queue of creditors described above.
Before investing, please make sure that you have carried out all the necessary authentication actions:
- confirmed the identity of your manager/authorised person;
- linked (confirmed) the legal person’s account with the Platform;
- provided additional documents: a copy of the identity document of the manager/authorised person, articles of association, decision on the investment adopted by the manager/shareholders/board (if relevant, according to the articles of association) and completed the legal person’s questionnaire.
Please note that, for the purposes of the verification of your identity, Profitus will address the State Enterprise Centre of Registers (the Register of Legal Entities and the Information System of Legal Entities Participants), from which it will obtain an extract from the Register of Legal Entities and a list of the members of the legal person (if the legal person is not one person).
The LTV is the loan-to-value ratio. It shows the percentage of the loan on a mortgaged real property. Thus, if the borrower seeks to crowdfund EUR 70,000, his real property mortgaged for the benefit of the investors must amount at least to EUR 100,000; in such a case, the LTV will be 70%.
The lower the percentage of the LTV, the better, since this means that more real property is being mortgaged for the benefit of the investors. However, you should also remember to consider whether the property is pledged by a primary mortgage.
