Crypto Trading Tax Implications

    Hi all,

    Can someone explain tax implications of trading crypto.

    I do hold some crypto for long periods but I also trade a lot as coins go up and down.

    What are tax implications here?. Do I just take the amount I cash out of exchange minus cash put in to exchange and pay capital gains on difference.
    Or do I need to consider each individual trade.

    Each individual trade, whether crypto:fiat or crypto:crypto, is a taxable event. If you're doing multiple trades in and out of different crypto, you'll more than likely need to get your CSV file off the exchange and use a service like koinly or else hire an accountant

    There's a pathetic, insultingly low threshold of only €1,270 that's tax free, any profit over that is taxed at a disgraceful 33%
