At the end of the funding period, you will receive a repayment comprising the amount you channeled as Sharia Financing to the Borrower. Alongside your return, you will also collect profit in the form of the fee or ijarah according to your Aqad Wakalah Bil Ujrah.
All the funds you receive will be transferred to your CIH account.

11. Can Lenders get access to information on Borrowers?
Investree is committed to maintaining the confidentiality of the Borrower's identity and personal data, which means only demographic and financial information will be shared with the Lender. Such information can be used to analyze the level of funding risk for the loan on offer.
12. What are the risks with lending through Investree?
While Investree takes quantifying steps to help mitigate risks during the application and loan approvals' processes, the worst case 'scenario' may occur and therefore needs to be taken into consideration. We advise you to consult a financial adviser before making any decision. The biggest risk that may occur with peer-to-peer lending is if the Lender does not recover his or her funds plus the fee or ijarah on the wakalah service rendered due to failure of repayment.
13. What happens if the Borrower fails to keep up repayments?
To minimize the risk of default, Investree—as previously described—will conduct assessment, selection, and approval using its cutting-edge credit-scoring system against each proposed loan. Once the Lender's funds are disbursed to the Borrower, Investree will also carry out monitoring to ensure that no misuse of any funds provided takes place, and that repayments can be made on time.
If Borrower fails to keep up repayments, Investree will take immediate action to protect the Lender's interests through the disbursement of the guarantee.

Article 23 Income Tax (PPh) refers to the tax withheld on earnings derived from capital (dividends, interest, royalties, etc.), delivery of services, or other activity beyond those withheld under Income Tax Article 21.

Yes, you will get proof of tax withheld by the Borrower whose loan you have funded. Investree will facilitate soft copy access to any proof of tax deductions provided by the Borrower.

In accordance with the provisions under Income Tax Article 23, any withholder of Article 23 Income Tax must be a domestic tax entity subject, where in this case the Borrower takes the form of a Limited Company.
