In light of the challenging global and local market conditions, we adopt the “pay if you succeed” model.
We only charge HK$2,000 as administrative fee for each case, to subsidise our day-to-day operational costs. Such administrative fee is non-refundable and payable upfront, at the commencement of our service. If the application is not successful, no other fees will be charged.
If the application is successful, we will charge a fee equivalent to 10% of the approved funding amount as our service fee. We offer 50% discount for charities, non-profit-making organisations, social enterprises, indie artists and small-medium size art/cultural organisations (i.e. we only charge a fee equivalent to 5% of the approved funding amount).
Separately, if the target funding amount is huge and the funding application process is long, we may charge a refundable deposit of HK$20,000 to ensure that the participant will stay committed throughout the application process. If the application is successful, the deposit will become part of our service fee. If the application is not successful, the deposit will be refunded in full to the applicant.
We make our best effort to minimise our operation cost. We have no physical office space, with our team members residing in Hong Kong, Singapore and America. No matter where we are, we take the future of Hong Kong to heart. We have experience in applying for various types of government funding, as well as operating both profit-making and non-profit-making entitles.
(Note: Service fee payable to sehji (if any) does not form part of the funding proceeds, instead should be paid by the applicant out of its own funds.)
