Interview with Simona Lucatniece, VIAINVEST P2P Platform Lead

Posted on

You’ve been with VIAINVEST platform since its very beginnings, now tell us, how has the platform evolved, and what have been the major challenges along the way?

It’s been almost 2 years since the platform launch, unbelievable how quickly time flies!

Until now, the major challenge was to keep up with the expectations of our investors – we have always emphasized that customer service is a huge deal for us, and we are truly putting an effort to add a personal touch.

VIAINVEST stands out in the P2P crowd with its unique loan portfolio – consumer loans listed on the platform are issued by the alternative financial services provider VIA SMS Group in four European countries and available for investments only on VIAINVEST. The interest rate for listed loans is set between 10% and 12%.

This approach may seem unusual, as the majority of platforms choose to interpret existing legislation in such ways that would allow skipping this uncomfortable issue and leaving tax liabilities to investors. Yes, taxation on the platform may seem uncomfortable and frightening at first, but luckily Tax/Residence Certificate may exempt investors from paying the tax on the platform. Unfortunately, there are several special cases, where legislation obliges us to withhold the tax even if the investor has provided Tax/Residence Certificate.
