We charge management fees and fees for FIA application.  The management fee is only applicable if the client is profitable, failing which no fee is payable (thus demonstrating our confidence in our trading model).  Please see our pricing guide in Annexure A of our Terms and Conditions for a more thorough breakdown of our fees. 

Our management fees are as follows:

FEES:

  • Trading fees:
  • 30% (thirty percent, excl VAT) of the total profit realised per trade.

    For example; if the capital investment of R200 000 is traded with and a gross profit of R6,000,00 is realised, the Company’s trading fee will equate to R1,800,00 (excl VAT).
  • The trading fees will be deducted by the Company after every trade has been completed, with the nett profit after fees paid to the client into his/her designated profit bank account.  The Capital shall be re-transferred to the client’s intermediary bank account in order to continue the trading process.

Please see the below ‘What is an SDA and FIA’ for more information.

 

Every South African citizen qualifies for an SDA (Single Discretionary Allowance) of R1 000 000 per year. This amount means that you can trade up to one million rand per calendar year (1st of January to 31st of December). An SDA does not require SARS approval.

Once your SDA has been exhausted (or even before the expiry of the SDA), you can apply for a FIA (Foreign Investment Allowance) of up to R10 000 000 (in addition to the R1 000 000 under the SDA). This amount means that you can trade with an additional ten million rand per calendar year.  To obtain an FIA, an application must be submitted to SARS.  You do not need to apply for the full R10 000 000 at once, but you can apply for any amount which can be justified (i.e. if you can demonstrate that you hold such funds locally). BitInvest is able to guide you through this process and is able to facilitate the obtainment of the FIA through our skilled agents.
It is important to note that every trade utilizes a portion of the client’s SDA or FIA. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that he/she does not exceed his allowance limits and must take into account any other amounts that are spent/invested/remitted offshore.

FOR EXAMPLE; if you invest R100 000 with us and instruct us to use your full SDA, we will use the same R100 000 to transact with on 10 different occasions in order to reach the R1 000 000 SDA limit.

  • a copy of your South African ID book / ID card (not passport).
  • proof of address (not more than 3 months old).
  • You should be over the age of 18 years old.
  • A minimum of R100 000 in your bank account to trade with. Proof of funds will be required by means of the client’s most recent bank statement.
  • By law, you need to have not utilized your full SDA or FIA – this is explained in the next FAQ.
  • If you are making use of your FIA, a tax clearance is required (we can refer you to our tax agent to assist with this application).
  • One trade will take approximately 24 – 72 hours from the time the forex currency is purchased, to the time the profit is paid back to you.
  • The profit percentage can vary and isn’t fixed, but BitInvest is generally able to realize 3 – 3.5% gross profit for the client per trade based on historical data. This is remarkable bearing in mind that most bank accounts offer this interest rate per annum.  The Client has the potential to make a 100% return on investment in the space of less than a year, if the Client keeps the initial capital investment with BitInvest and allows BitInvest to trade numerous transaction on behalf of the client.

  • By using our Bitcoin price algorithm, BitInvest is able to determine price discrepancies between various markets and establish the best time to trade, by buying Bitcoin at a discounted price and selling Bitcoin at a premium soon thereafter on a different market. This saves you from having to watch various markets and exchanges all day and from having to do the necessary calculations and trades yourself (even if you familiar with the arbitrage trading process).
  • The team at BitInvest are experienced with this method of trading, and are able to generate substantial returns on investment for our clients which completely outperform more traditional investments.
