How tax laws apply to your cryptocurrency gains

On paper, the capital gains are nothing short of staggering. The value of Bitcoin has seen a growth of 250% in the 2021 Financial Year while some investors have achieved 600%.

However, one big catch is– the capital gains tax (CGT).

ATO tracks down cryptocurrency investments by taxpayers through:

  • banks
  • financial institutions
  • cryptocurrency online exchanges

Gains from cryptocurrency investments are taxed the same way as gains from shares.

Understanding the tax implications of cryptocurrency, including the need to revalue assets in Australian dollars, which may generate currency gains, is important.
