By

Regulatory authorities around the world have tighten the grip on crypto projects. Taxation authorities like Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Australian Taxation Office (ATO) are the latest to join the list with strong initiatives.

Australian Taxation Office recently sent warning letters to the investors who have invested a large part of their retirement savings in crypto related funds. ATO sent these letters in order to warn investors against high risk investments like crypto. One of the key responsibilities of regulatory authorities and taxation authorities is to keep investors away from high risk investment schemes.

A spokesman from ATO told local media that “We have already seen instances in 2018 where investors lost significant amount of their retirement fund in crypto investments, so it’s our duty to make them aware about the kind of risk crypto market posses”. The spokesman further explained that they are also against the huge exposure in any single asset class. “We are not saying that we are all and all against the crypto market or crypto assets, but we are more concerned about the kind of exposure these crypto retirement funds have in single crypto asset like Bitcoin”

“If an investor is putting more than 90% of his retirement savings in crypto then obviously it is at high risk and that’s what we discourage, we have no issues in diversified portfolios but if crypto retirement funds are having 100% exposure in crypto assets then we have to warn investors about the potential losses.

Self-Managed-Super Funds (SMSFs)

SMSFs are type of retirement accounts privately managed by individuals rather than the institutions or regulated financial companies. Australian Securities and Investments Commission also supports ATO’s decision, in a recent statement ASIC said

“Be wary of services offering to establish an SMSF for you in order to gain exposure to cryptocurrencies. Not only does operating an SMSF involve significant time, skills and responsibility, you may also be putting your retirement savings at risk”
