Crypto Accounting FAQs

Our team of crypto accountants are truly passionate about crypto and have in-depth knowledge of both the rapidly evolving crypto ecosystem and the changing tax regulations, enabling us to service even the most complex crypto clients that traditional accountants would not be able to assist. Our team of crypto tax specialists will help you navigate the nuances of crypto tax, reduce your tax liabilities and minimise the risk of costly errors or audits.

Cryptocurrency is considered a form of property and is subject to either capital gains tax (CGT) or income tax depending on whether you are a crypto investor or trader. This means that if you sell, trade, or use your cryptocurrency to purchase goods or services, you may need to pay tax on any gains you've made. Income generated from activities like staking is also generally considered to be assessable income for tax purposes. The specific tax treatment and tax concessions available will vary depending on an individual’s circumstances and so it is important to understand what tax rules apply to you to ensure compliance and avoid any potential ATO penalties/fines.
All crypto trades, regardless of whether they are crypto to fiat or just crypto to crypto (e.g. trading BTC for ETH) are taxable events and gains/losses need to be calculated and reported.
All trades, regardless of whether a profit or loss was made, need to be accounted for and reported. Further, any losses you have made can be carried forward to future years where they can be used to offset any future gains which can lead to substantial tax savings in the future!
Absolutely! We assist many high-volume NFT traders navigate the reporting requirements for their trading activities and prepare their NFT trading reports. Depending on your specific circumstances, NFT traders are often subject to the trading stock rules, and so it is important to understand how these rules apply to you to ensure compliance with current tax legislation.
In most circumstances, yes, you can claim a loss when you have had assets stolen. It is important to ensure that the events surrounding the hack are appropriately documented and recorded in case these losses are ever questioned by the tax office.
The tax implications of your DeFi activity will vary depending on what the specific activity is. For example, swapping tokens on dexes are all taxable events and gains/losses need to be recorded for the tokens being sold. Further, income earned from providing liquidity to pools or from staking will generally be classed as assessable income. There are many different DeFi protocols available for use, all with subtle differences and potentially varying tax consequences, and so it is important to understand how different types of transactions are taxed to ensure compliance with current tax legislation.
Public blockchains are exactly that - public! Therefore, it is very easy to trace a crypto wallet to an individual, and the latest crypto analysis software employed by large organisations like tax agencies makes it even easier.
Yes, we assist clients with any number of transactions. Most of our clients are extremely active and accumulate thousands and thousands of transactions which we will sort through and ensure they are accounted for correctly.
Yes, we use specialised software to aggregate your crypto data from all sources, which simplifies and streamlines the crypto reporting process. Most of our clients have accounts with several exchanges and use many different crypto wallets for their on-chain activities.
You will need to provide data from all centralised exchanges (either in the form of read-only APIs or CSV exports) along with the addresses of all crypto wallets you have used. Once we have this information, we use specialised software to aggregate all of your crypto data so we can begin reconciling your transaction history.
Yes! As registered tax agents we prepare tax returns on behalf of our clients. We will use the crypto tax reports we prepare and will then request additional information pertaining to your other non-crypto activity such as share trading, rental properties, work deductions etc and will then prepare and lodge your tax return with the ATO.
Yes, we help clients setup self-managed superfunds that invest into crypto and assist with the ongoing management of the SMSF’s compliance obligations. Please refer to our SMSF page for more details.
All income that is generated for providing services needs to be reported, regardless of whether it is paid in fiat, cryptocurrency or by some other means and is taxable when it is earned (usually when it hits your designated wallet address). Income earned for providing services to DAOs is generally treated as “personal services income” where specific rules apply to how this income is taxed and so it is important to understand if these rules apply to you.
Yes, we have many clients who engage us solely to prepare their crypto tax reports. They will then provide these reports to their traditional accountant who will use them to prepare their tax return.
Yes you do! By lodging with a tax agent, you get an extended lodgement date of 15 May the following year, which is an additional 7 months from the standard 31 October deadline!
We prepare a comprehensive set of reports depending on your requirements and tax classification (investor or trader). The reports we prepare can include a report summary/overview, capital gains report, income report (staking, interest etc), expense report, inventory report, trading stock report and a transactions report. All reports are incredibly detailed, including timestamps, transaction hashes, data source etc – everything you will need in case of an audit.
Costs will vary depending on the volume and complexity of your transactions. We can’t estimate fees until we have reviewed your crypto data so we know how much work is involved. If you would like a no obligation quote, please get in contact with us!
