Cryptocurrency Tax

The law around cryptocurrency tax is complex and on the radar with the Australian Tax Office. In 2020 the ATO issued approximately 350,000 notices to cryptocurrency investors.

It is important that you understand your tax obligations and keep accurate accounting records.

Waterhouse Lawyers have expertise in the crypto tax field; with specialised articles featured in both The Tax Institute and Thomson Reuters Tax Bulletin.

We understand crypto tax can be a grey area. Our expert cryptocurrency tax lawyers can help clarify topics such as:

  • Cryptocurrency and Capital Gains Tax;
  • CGT on Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) when the value of the cryptocurrency is nil;
  • Converting cryptocurrency to fiat currency;
  • Tax laws around the sale or gift crypto;
  • Crypto-to-crypto trading;
  • Using crypto to obtain goods or services;
  • Personal use asset exemptions from CGT;
  • Chain splits of different versions of cryptocurrency;
  • Crypto tax reporting requirements to the ATO.

Satisfied Clients

Fantastic help

OMG – it’s the truth – you told the truth – that’s a strategy?! I LOVE it – I’m so happy – however the [government agency] responds will be OK by me. It’s perfect, you have made sense of a time in my life and behaviour and responses I didn’t understand.

The reasoning and explanation in your letter is more valuable to me personally than the [agency’s] outcome. A win would be great, but no matter what happens, I can definitely take heed of this, develop better insight, work on improving my response to confronting and conflicting events and have a happier life, which is and must be the ultimate goal.

Seriously grateful and overwhelmingly impressed by your ability to nail the issues in such a way that I will have peace of mind no matter what the outcome.

Exceptional Service and Tax Knowledge

I am delighted with the results Tania has achieved in dealing with the Australian Taxation Office. My matter was complex.However, Tania was quick to understand the issues and able to prepare a strategy for my approval. Once I approved the strategy Tania immediately went to work and achieved a result my previous lawyers had not thought possible.

I believe Tania is a very intelligent and honest person. She has a great sense of intuition and a very commercial approach.  She also has a sense of urgency and diplomacy found only in a rare few.

Tania takes a pragmatic approach to solutions.  She has a very approachable manner and does not become intimidated by aggressive and complex situations.

I have no hesitation in recommending Tania to anyone needing assistance with their taxation matters.
