Do you buy and sell crypto?

Are bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum or ripple in your investment portfolio?

Whether you’ve dabbled in trading them, or you are 100% in on crypto, Australia has strict tax legislation that covers the taxation of CGT assets including crypto. The Australian Tax Office (ATO) has issued guidance for investors that you should follow. Of course guidance is only general in nature and specific circumstances can dictate a different approach to your tax.

It’s not just about compliance. These rules also determine the tax implications around your earnings and gains, which is why you need a crypto tax accountant to help you get the most out of your investment.

But, is your current accountant up to date enough to help you?

Frequently Asked Questions

What if my crypto was lost, stolen or scammed?

Stolen or scammed crypto assets can be 'written-off' by acknowledging the disposal. We clearly detail any stolen, scammed or permanently lost assets that you advise us of in your report. You should collect substantiation for the write-off, the best documentation being a liquidators report, but acknowledgement of the event from a reputable news source may also be acceptable.

The exchange I was trading on is now insolvent and I can't get my records

The legislation is clear that you still have an obligation to keep the records. You should contact the support email or the liquidator and request a copy of your transactions. If unsuccessful, we have a number of data reconstruction techniques we can apply to ensure a best-effort approach is still achieved for your tax.

I have 100,000s of trades, can you still help?

Yes, we work with many clients that employ automated trading strategies and regularly reach into the 100,000s of executed trades. We automate the data processing and tax calculations which allow us to handle even the most frequent traders.

Can you handle this exotic platform I traded on once?

In general we can process your crypto activity from any platform or service, provided you have complete transactional data available that is reliable and accurate. The transactions we require are transfers into and out of the service, trades or exchanges from one asset to another and the details of any income earned and expenses incurred on the platform.

I am not sure if I am considered an investor or a trader?

If you trade frequently and you earn your primary income from trading activity, you may be a trader. We will provide you with an Income Report if you are a trader or other business entity.

What about my mining / staking rewards?

We can recognise your mining or staking income from on-chain transactions or from records provided by you. Your mining and staking rewards will be recognised as income. Once acquired, the assets may be treated as an investment asset or as trading stock depending how you conduct your activity.
