    • using the greater of their annual income or net worth when calculating the investment limits for non-accredited investors;
  • Extending for 18 months the existing temporary relief providing an exemption from certain Regulation Crowdfunding financial statement review requirements for issuers offering $250,000 or less of securities in reliance on the exemption within a 12-month period;
  • Permitting Regulation Crowdfunding issuers to “test-the-waters” prior to filing an offering document with the Commission in a manner similar to current Regulation A and,
  • Establishing rules that permit the use of Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) that function as a conduit for investors to facilitate investing in Regulation Crowdfunding issuers.
