How do I perform a capital increase at Qonto ?
As Qonto is a new financial player, we are currently not authorized by the financial authority to deliver a capital deposit certificate.
💡 The funds needed for your capital increase will therefore have to be transferred directly to the escrow account of our notary partner (whose IBAN will be shared with you)
⚠️ If you send the funds to your current Qonto account, the transaction will be automatically returned to you, after checking the received funds with you.
What are the requirements for a capital increase with Qonto ?
We will be able to assist you with your capital increase project on the following conditions:
Have a Qonto account and opt for an increase by cash contribution* with full release of the shares.
The total amount of the capital increase must not exceed EUR 1.2 million.
The maximum number of partners participating in the operation is 15.
Each transfer must come from a personal account in a country of the European Union excluding Luxembourg for natural persons, or from a professional account in a country of the European Union excluding Luxembourg for legal entities.
⚠️ These conditions are mandatory to the success of your project with Qonto, so please ensure that each of them is respected, or your transfer will be rejected.
*Capital increases by incorporation of reserves or by contribution in kind are not taken into account.
