Frequently asked questions

Do you pay tax on crypto?

Yes you do pay tax on crypto. If you buy, sell or invest in cryptocurrency, you need to be aware of your tax responsibilities. Your tax responsibilities vary depending on your circumstances, but you need to keep records for all cryptocurrency transactions. We recommend using an app like CryptoTaxCalculator to help.

How much tax do I pay on crypto?

How much tax you pay on crypto depends on whether you are categorised as a crypto investor or trader. Investors are most commonly subject to Capital Gains Tax (CGT), while traders are typically carrying on a business or profit-making activity that derives Ordinary Income. This is also largely dependent on the structure you have used to invest in cryptocurrency.

Am I a cryptocurrency trader or cryptocurrency investor?

Cryptocurrency investors typically buy, sell, or swap crypto assets for fiat currency or another crypto-asset to hold the asset for long term capital growth. A cryptocurrency trader intends to buy and sell crypto for short-term profits.


Traders will have a strategy for buying or selling, planning their trading activities, keeping extensive records, and trading repeatedly and in volume. They may also have registered a business, hired office space, paid for professional research and analysis, and kept extensive and well-maintained records if an ATO review will be conducted into their activities.

When does capital gains tax apply, and how do I calculate it?

Capital Gains Tax (CGT) occurs when you dispose of cryptocurrency. According to the ATO, this could be by the following common events:

  • Trading or exchanging, most typically in the form of disposal of one cryptocurrency for another
  • Converting cryptocurrency to fiat currency, such as the Australian dollar
  • Using cryptocurrency to purchase goods or services
  • Selling or gifting cryptocurrency
Am I taxed on staking or Airdrops?

Any income earned from Staking or Airdrops will not constitute a Capital Gains event. Instead, the ATO considers additional tokens received from these processes to be income. They are taxed according to your income bracket.
