Australian Taxation Office: What Is The Difference Between a Crypto Trader and Investor?

The ATO wants to know if you’re buying, trading, mining, staking, or giving and receiving cryptos – regardless of whether the transaction was processed here using Australian Dollars, in El Salvador, or any other country around the world.  

When it comes time to lodge your annual tax return, the ATO will compare it with the data and records collected from the designated service providers (DSP). This way, they can ensure that your tax report and taxable income matches your cryptocurrency transactions.

But your tax obligations are determined based on whether you are a cryptocurrency trader or investor. 

Crypto Investor: Capital Gains Tax Obligations

The ATO considers you a crypto investor if you are primarily buying and selling cryptocurrencies to experience long-term capital. 

So, if you would have to sell your cryptocurrency, your transaction would be subject to capital gains tax (CGT).

Does A Crypto Trader Pay Tax?

If your primary purpose is to earn a profit from the buying and selling of various cryptocurrencies, the ATO considers you a crypto trader. 

So, that means that you’re conducting a business, and you’ll be subject to pay tax on your assessable income.

Whether you are a cryptocurrency investor or trader, the Box Advisory team can assist with the following services:

  • Income tax returns – preparation and filing 
  • Bookkeeping and reconciliations
