Experienced Cryptocurrency Tax Accountant in Australia

Cryptocurrency (aka crypto) is a digital or virtual form of currency that uses cryptography and operates on decentralised platforms using blockchain technology. Crypto has emerged not just as a new asset class but as a revolution in how wealth is created, stored, and transferred. This evolution brings with it a myriad of tax implications that require meticulous preparation and compliance. 

1 in 10 Australians have invested in cryptocurrencies, but many are only aware of their tax obligations once they get audited.

Crypto is considered an asset, not a currency, and falls under Capital Gains Tax (CGT). The Australian Government treats individuals differently based on their crypto usage, requiring tax payment on gains or even offering tax refunds for losses.

At F5 Accountants, we specialise in navigating these complex tax landscapes, ensuring our clients are fully compliant with Australian tax laws while optimising their potential for wealth accumulation. Our expertise isn’t just broad; it’s deep, covering a wide spectrum of crypto transactions including NFTs, airdrops, trading, and lending.

Frequently Asked Questions

To declare cryptocurrency taxes in Australia, you must account for transactions as capital gains or losses on your tax return. This includes sales, trades, or exchanges of crypto assets, which are considered capital gains tax (CGT) events.

You can’t offset a net capital loss against other income, but you may reduce capital gains with a CGT discount for assets held for at least 12 months. It’s essential to keep detailed records of each transaction, including dates, amounts in Australian dollars, and the nature of the transaction.

Yes, even if you didn’t sell any cryptocurrency, you need to report trades or exchanges as they can trigger capital gains tax events.

Claiming a loss from a hacked crypto wallet involves demonstrating the theft with detailed documentation, including the transaction history and any communications regarding the hack. The ability to claim depends on proving ownership of the lost assets and the circumstances of the loss. It’s a nuanced area where specific conditions must be met, and the tax implications can vary.

A crypto tax report is essential for accurately documenting all your cryptocurrency transactions over the financial year, helping you comply with tax obligations and supporting any claims or deductions in your tax return.

If you haven’t reported cryptocurrency gains in past tax years, consider amending previous returns to include these gains. It’s advisable to seek professional advice from a tax accountant like us or consult the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for guidance on amending returns.

Staking cryptocurrency can generate income that must be reported on your tax return. When you stake crypto, you earn rewards, which are considered taxable income by the ATO at their market value at the time you receive them. This means you need to keep detailed records of the value of the rewards at the time of receipt to accurately report this income and fulfil your tax obligations.

DeFi activities and yield farming have specific tax considerations, mainly regarding how income and gains from these activities are taxed. These activities often involve earning interest, fees, or rewards, which the ATO may treat as income at the time of receipt, or as capital gains when assets are disposed of. It’s important to keep detailed records and understand the tax implications, which can be complex due to the evolving nature of the regulations.
