Frequently asked questions

Is it user friendly?

Absolutely! No prior knowledge of investment or money management is required. Only basic computer skills are required.

What are the risks?

This investment programme minimises risk, but losses do occur on average two to three days per month. The COVID-19 virus had a very small impact on the business because of the New Zealand and Tasmanian venues shutting down for several months.

How can I be sure it does work?

There is only one way to be absolutely sure of anything. Do it yourself first before you spend any money. You can request to see our past ten years of profit results and also a risk free 28 Day Trial.

Is this suitable for both men and women?

Absolutely. Everyone has exactly the same opportunity.

Is there any assistance given to new operators?

Yes, to start with, you will be entitled to a minimum of three (3) daily training sessions. This covers ALL aspects of the running of the business. Secondly, this is followed up with regular contact and further training sessions if, and when required, by Zoom, email or phone.

What ongoing assistance will I get?

On a daily basis (7 days a week), you will be emailed a sheet of selections for that particular day. The day’s events are itemised, plus there is a summary of the events themselves. You do NOT need to do this yourself, although you will be trained to do so.

Is there future potential for growth?

The Thoroughbred Racing Industry is one of Australia’s largest industries and with overseas money now being channelled in too, the future looks extremely bright. The GFC and COVID did not negatively affect the performance or results of the industry. As more races on our TAB are featured throughout the world the more opportunity there is to work the system.

Is this business Australia-wide?

Yes, you can operate this business from any part of Australia or overseas with internet access.

How often can I work?

It totally depends on when you want to work. You are your own boss. However, 6-7 days and nights are available to you, as that is when racing is occurring.

How much time each day is needed?

Generally speaking, 3-4 hours per day is all that is needed.

How does it work?

Select the next race, within a set time limit, and within a few seconds, a complete set of odds and returns appear on your computer. If it fits, the system will tell you to place the bets.

Does it cost a lot of money?

In comparison to most small businesses, the cost is very small. There are very few part or full-time businesses that you could buy for $49,500 + a $6000 ongoing yearly licence support fee. And there are no other office/staff expenses.

Is this a cash business?

Yes, there are no invoices, no accounts to be settled and no credit to customers. Your money is assured by Government decree. Just draw your winnings from your TAB account in person or by EFT. You always control tour TAB account; we have no access to your money.

What could I expect to earn with Freedom Securities?

That depends on two things:

  1. The amount of working capital you put into your business. Recommended Minimum Capital:
    • $10,000 for a $100 net return per race.
    • $20,000 for a $200 net return per race
    • $30,000 for a $300 net return per race.

    We stress that these recommended capital inputs and net returns are purely estimates and do not represent a guarantee of profit ratio.

  2. Your ability to follow the rules of the system.

Where does the money come from?

There is easy access to TAB accounts and all forms of racing are televised via TAB to our homes on a daily basis. The result is a growing pool on every race. On Saturdays for example, the pool from which we work averages around $400,000 – $600,000 per race. This means that if we wish to work for say $3,000 per race we could do so. As this pool size rises, we could work for much greater profits. On public holidays and special occasions this would apply as well. However, the majority of people would be happy to earn say $1,000 – $2,000 per week during the week. This means working up to 3 hours per day most days, even a few evenings as well. With added experience the operator can move up the ladder to a much higher profit target at his/her own pace.

Where does this pool of money originate?

Today, right throughout Australia, we have countless outlets in the form of TABs, Pub Tabs, and Minitab’s, as well as hundreds of thousands of Telephone Accounts.
It’s been estimated that the average person invests $10.00 each time they place a bet, so when we see $400,000 in a pool, this equates to around 40,000 people investing on that particular race. There are 3 Pools in Australia from which to work, not one.

What is the current ATO position regarding tax on winnings?

When you receive an amount of money from a gambling activity, the amount is usually not assessable income unless you are a professional gambler.

In deciding whether someone is a professional gambler, the courts consider issues such as:

  • Whether the activity is undertaken in a business-like manner
  • Whether the person has specialist knowledge associated with that gambling activity
  • The scale of operations.

For further guidance, you can have a look at Taxation Ruling IT2655 – Income tax: betting and gambling – whether taxpayer carrying on business of betting or gambling.
This ruling can be accessed from our legal database. If you’re not sure what to do, you can apply for a private ruling.

What other qualifications do I need, other than the cost of the business itself and some working capital?

Nothing. All you need is a POSITIVE ATTITUDE, PERSISTENCE and the ABILITY to MAKE DECISIONS. This overrules any other qualifications such as background or educational standard.

Do I need a background of racing knowledge?

Definitely not. This is purely a numbers game.

Do I need to go to the TABs or racecourses?

No. Your work is done via internet from your computer whether you are at home, work or on holiday.

Where do we get the odds from to earn profits?

Thousands of people throughout the country who ‘play the horses’ via the TAB on Galloping Races, Trotting or Greyhound Racing.

Can I earn a profit on any race?

No. It depends on the odds themselves and that’s where Freedom Securities software analyses the odds mathematically. By simply pressing a key or two, the programme will advise you whether to invest on the race or not.

Why can’t we use any set of odds?

You only use the ones that offer you an acceptable win, at the lowest acceptable RISK.

Why don’t more people have a Freedom Securities business?

For a couple of reasons:

  1. Not everyone can afford to have one.
  2. Most Australians prefer trying to win money picking out what they fancy, and this is the lifeblood of the business.
