  • Copy of most recently lodged tax return.
  • All CSV/Spreadsheet file exports from your exchanges and wallets revealing all your trades, deposits and withdrawals up to today (or 30 June if you have those holding records).
  • A record of each cryptocurrency you currently own (i.e. the ticker such as BTC, ETH) and the quantity held today (or 30 June if you have an exact record).
  • Records of anything else related to cryptocurrency that you believe we need to know. For example, hardware wallets and mining/staking costs.
  • If you have maintained a cryptocurrency bookkeeping account, for example with CoinTracking, then kindly provide the login credentials (username and password).
  • Records associated with your other income and investments. For example, if you trade shares then you can usually download an End of Financial Year Report from your broker which shows shares owned at 30 June, and all your purchases and sales throughout the year.
  • Records of any tax deductible expenditure. If you are unsure if something is tax deductible, then include it and we can determine tax treatment.
  • Anything else which we should know about your tax affairs.

2020 and earlier tax returns

We continue to prepare and lodge prior year tax returns.

This includes original tax returns; and also amendments where you need to go back and report undeclared crypto gains and/or losses.

Submit the afore-mentioned information to us at digital@munros.com.au and we will get back to you with a quote.

What to do at 30 June

If you've traded crypto then this is what you need to do at 30 June each year, in four easy steps, to make life easier come tax return preparation:

Note, if you haven't done this at 30 June, then you will need to gather these records to today's date instead.

  • Step 1

    Keep a record of each crypto you owned at 30 June 2021 and how many.
     
    For example,
    Bitcoin BTC     0.45642
    Ether ETH       2.351
    Ripple XRP      6,458.452
    Litecoin LTC     20.5434

    Best practice is to keep this record in a spreadsheet with a column for the crypto ticker (e.g. BTC) and a column for the quantity.

    And.... it’s also a great idea to take screenshots of balances held at exchanges and wallets as substantiation. These screenshots are especially important for Self-Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF).

  • Step 2

    Download your transaction history for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 from your exchanges and wallets.
     
    These are usually available to download as CSV/Spreadsheet files using an export history feature.
     
    If you traded crypto before 1 July 2019 and haven’t previously kept a copy of those transactions, then you also need to download prior year data too.

  • Step 3

    Download your deposit and withdrawal history from exchanges and wallets.
     
    Again, these are usually CSV files and should include crypto and fiat (AUD, USD, EURO) amounts.

  • Step 4

    Send this information to us, together with your other tax information such as tax deductible expenses.

    We will then review the information and let you know what is needed to get your tax return done. This will include a quote for the service.

    When you have accepted our engagement agreement, your tax return will then be prepared and lodged by us, Australia’s GO-TO cryptocurrency specialists – Munro’s Cryptocurrency Accountants.

    You can send the information by email at digital@munros.com.au or request a secure client portal account to upload via our website.
