Investment in GO-OP


GO-OP has reduced its minimum investment from £100 to £50 with our new Membership Share Offer, open to prospective users of our services. Payment can be made by cheque, bank transfer or by completing the standing order mandate form.

GO-OP issues full-risk, withdrawable share capital. This earns interest at a rate sufficient to attract and retain investment, and cannot be transferred at a profit. The use of such par value shares is common practice for mutual societies as it protects both enterprises and investors from damaging speculative fluctuations in share price.

So far, GO-OP's working capital has been built up from a large number of small investments, most having the benefit of EIS tax relief. We expect to prepare an offer document for a further round of investment when we have gained assurance of the necessary consents and approvals: until then, further investment would be very high risk. For this reason, while members can subscribe more than the minumum requirement indicated above, we would need to ask a few questions of anyone investing more than £2000 at this stage, to ensure that they are experienced investors.
