Cryptoassets are a fairly new unregulated asset class. Gains are subject to taxation as detailed in HMRC’s 2018 policy paper. As the asset becomes more mainstream, we expect investors and traders to enlist the help of accountants and IFAs to calculate tax gains and losses on cryptoassets.
Taxing cryptoassets is one step to bringing it in line with other investments, solidifying its position as an emerging asset class. The Financial Conduct Authority recently set out the position on cryptoassets in a policy statement, stating where different assets fall in the regulatory perimeter and emphasising that consumers must understand the risks as the assets have no intrinsic value.
