Regulation A,B,C,D…….Z! Does one need to be a lawyer to navigate the capital raising process in the US? The most frequently asked question is what is the difference between Regulation A+ and Regulation D. The main difference is that Regulation D is for accredited investors (and a select few non-accredited investors) whereas Regulation A+ can be used to raise capital from non-accredited investors. Read about the different types of investors in our previous post.

We break down the difference between Reg A+ and Regulation D below:

Regulation A+

The beauty of Reg A+ is that it can be used to raise capital from non-accredited or retail investors. You can raise up to $75 million from retail investors as long as their investment does not exceed 10% of their net income or net worth. Read more about Regulation A+.

Regulation D

Regulation D is mainly for companies issuing a private placement to accredited investors. Regulation D can also be for only 35 non-accredited investors. Read more about Regulation D.
