HMRC’s view varies depending on whether cryptocurrencies (cryptoassets) are held by an individual or a business, based on the law as it stands.

The cryptoassets sector is fast-moving and developing all the time. The terminology, types of coins, tokens and transactions can vary. The tax treatment of cryptoassets continues to develop due to the evolving nature of the underlying technology and the areas in which cryptoassets are used.

As such, HMRC will look at the facts of each case and apply the relevant tax provisions according to what has actually taken place (rather than by reference to terminology). Their views will evolve further as the sector develops, so it is important to take professional advice when it comes to potential tax liabilities and disclosure.

Depending on your specific activity (mining, investing, arbitraging, etc.) you may have to pay taxation at income tax rates, and/or capital gains tax. It is also possible for the transaction to potentially qualify as being exempt from taxation altogether. VAT may also need to be considered depending if on whether you are deemed to be trading as a business. Which cryptocurrency activities you are engaging in will affect the advice you need and the tax structure you may want to consider.

Keeping good records of the cryptocurrency transactions is very important and we can advise on what data you should keep..

  • Your gains are above the Capital Gains Annual Exemption threshoold
  • The sum of your total proceeds is higher than 4 x the Capital Gains Annual Exemption.
