Birchal accepts investment from outside Australia.
However, please note that offers on Birchal are made under the Australian securities regime. People wishing to invest from outside Australia must satisfy themselves that it is lawful for them to invest from the jurisdiction they are in.
As an example, in certain circumstances investing in an overseas offer like this could potentially breach non-Australian securities laws, and may cause tax complications in the case of any potential future returns on the investment.
Birchal does not give any advice or assurance to non-Australian investors, and encourages investors to seek their own professional advice on their individual circumstances prior to making any investment.
