Why should you buy from Independent Reserve?
The sole purpose testAll SMSFs in Australia must pass the sole purpose test, which requires the SMSF funds to only be generating income that benefits the SMSF fund itself directly. No one (including trustees) can obtain a direct financial benefit when making investment decisions with fund money.
StorageRegular transfers of cryptocurrency can in some instances add further complications to SMSF audit processes as the location of all your funds needs to be accounted for. Independent Reserve recommends that if you decide to transfer your cryptocurrency off our platform, you minimise the number of wallets you send it to and keep detailed records of where it is.
