Do you have to pay tax on cryptocurrency?

Ever since the ATO first introduced taxation guidelines for crypto back in 2014 it’s been clear that crypto is taxable. You can also read the most up to date ATO guidelines on crypto.

For most individuals, your crypto will be subject to capital gains tax. This means you must calculate the gain or loss on every transaction and declare the resulting capital gains.

The ATO has advised that Australian taxpayers must keep the following records:

  • receipts when you buy, transfer or dispose of crypto assets
  • a record of the date of each transaction
  • a record of what the transaction is for and who the other party is (this can just be their crypto asset address)
  • exchange records
  • a record of the value of the crypto asset in Australian dollars at the time of each transaction

How is crypto taxed on Wealth99

The type and amount of tax paid can vary depending on the transaction, asset type and your tax settings. Depending on your situation, you could be taxed on:

  • ordinary income - commission and earn programs
  • capital gains - disposals of cryptocurrency

All events involving cryptocurrency assets may result in acquisitions or disposals of a CGT asset.

As we all know, crypto tax is complicated, which is why most tax professionals recommend using crypto tax software to automate the tax calculations for you. That way you won’t make mistakes that could trigger an ATO audit.

If you want to know more about the different tax treatments, you can find detailed information in our ultimate crypto tax guide.

Does Wealth99 report transactions to the ATO

Wealth99 is a registered Digital Currency Exchange (DCE) with AUSTRAC. As an AUSTRAC registered DCE, Wealth99 must perform KYC and know the identity of their customers. This is important for preventing scammers and criminal activity.

Since 2019 the ATO has been operating a data sharing program with Australian Digital Currency Exchanges. Under the data sharing program, the digital currency exchange must provide transaction data of their users to the ATO.

In short, the ATO knows your transaction history on Wealth99. You’ll know the ATO has your cryptocurrency transaction data, as it will show in the prefill report on your tax return. That means it’s important that you do calculate and declare your crypto gains, otherwise it’s only a matter of time before the ATO comes knocking.

How to do Wealth99 taxes

Our Australian financial year starts on the 1 July and ends on the 30 June each year. You can prepare and lodge your tax return any time after the 30 June.

You have until the 31 October to lodge your individual tax return, or you can get an extended lodgement deadline till 15 May when lodging through a registered tax agent.

There are three ways you can complete your cryptocurrency tax return

  1. do it yourself by hand in a spreadsheet 😭
  2. provide your transaction statements to your tax agent / accountant
  3. use crypto tax software to automate the calculations and optimise for lower tax.

If you decide to do it yourself by hand, then you will need to be very careful to track the individual cost base of each crypto asset, and calculate the capital gain or loss on each disposal. This might be okay if you only have a handful of transactions. 👍

Otherwise, you can use Syla to do your Wealth99 crypto tax calculations and tax optimisation. You can also provide the final Crypto Tax Report you create in Syla to your tax agent, or you can use the report yourself to lodge your own tax return.
