Updated over a week ago

Prepare your capital increase with Qonto

When considering a fundraising round (Series A, B, C, etc.) or a capitalization operation for your company, Qonto is by your side to streamline this process. We guide you through obtaining your funds deposit certificate within just 48 business hours after fund transfer, thanks to our fast and efficient service 🚀.

Procedure for opening an escrow account

Our team takes care of opening an escrow account with a partner notary. This account is intended to receive various subscriptions before issuing the certificate and transferring the funds to your Qonto current account.

⚠️ Important: Funds intended for the capital increase must not be deposited directly into your Qonto account.

What are the conditions for a capital increase?

To benefit from our support, your company must meet the following conditions:

  • Be registered in France and have an active Qonto account;

  • Carry out a capital increase through a cash contribution with full release of shares*;

  • Each amount transferred to the escrow account must comply with the sources of funds accepted by Qonto. ⚠️ Qonto reserves the right to refuse any transfer from individual accounts such as Lydia, Sumup, or Nickel.

*Note: Capital increases through reserve incorporation (use of company's own funds), debt offsetting (contribution of debt in exchange for shares or equity), in-kind contribution (contribution of assets in exchange for shares), as well as contributions via BSA and BSA AIR are not supported by Qonto.
