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.

Never thought I could find help like that

Hi Tania,

I appreciate tremendously the advice and reassurance you gave me when I saw you . I never thought I could find help like that from anyone.

It was a pleasure meeting you and your staff.

Thank you Waterhouse Tax Lawyers

I cannot recommend Waterhouse Lawyers highly enough. I am a tax agent and referred a client to the team at Waterhouse Lawyers who was in quite a bit of trouble after lodging numerous years of Income Tax returns very late but for good reason.

It was beyond me to try to tackle the issues we had with the ATO on our own. I was so relieved the first time I spoke with Tania, I just knew I could leave it in safe, capable hands. I was so confident after talking with her.

The staff handling everything communicated and updated us on the way and were a great support. We had an amazing outcome, but I knew they would achieve the result in the end, I just knew from the beginning.

You are all amazing there.

I hope not to use your services in future! But I am relaxed knowing there is a team out there that I can call on to assist any of my clients with the really big legal issues they have with the ATO.

Thank you all again. Thank you Tania. I hope we can keep in contact into the future.

Grateful for tax advice

I am grateful to Tania who has offered her assistance.

Tanis’s free of cost consultation has proved that ‘yes ‘there are human beings who helped others in this materialistic world.

No wonder Tania you are highly professional and very kind hearted individual. My entire family is grateful to you. My words are not scripted it’s a real time experience of ordinary individual who is not representing any corporation or business enterprise.
