Crypto Tax Report

Together with the tax return we will provide a personalised portfolio tax report in relation to your cryptocurrency activity, which will disclose the following information (where applicable):

  • Portfolio Valuation
  • Investment Movements
  • Tax Summary
  • Assessable Income
  • Deductible Expenses
  • Realised Gains and Losses
  • Unrealised Gains and Losses

Your report will be prepared using

unique systems and knowledge.

The result will be calculation of your cryptocurrency gains and losses to what we believe will be

an unrivalled degree of accuracy,

including minimising tax as much as legally possible.


Price depends on your specific situation and is impacted by factors such as complexity of your personal, investment and/or business affairs, completeness of data, compilation of data, number of different accounts, wallets and exchanges, types of transactions, number of investments/crypto traded, and timeliness of advice and assistance sort.

Our pricing generally begins at:

  • $3,300 incl. GST per annum for modest affairs;
  • $6,600 incl. GST per annum for intermediate affairs*; and
  • $12,000 incl. GST per annum for complex affairs*.

* Intermediate and complex affairs typically involve business operations, DeFi, margin trading, mining, multiple NFTs, non-major blockchains, non-major exchanges, non-major wallets and/or missing information.

Ultimately, the price is determined on a case-by-case basis and we can provide a specific quote in due course (after receiving all source information), giving you a clear understanding of the price before proceeding with tax return preparation services.

Information We Need

The following information is what we need to prepare a quote and your tax return:

  1. Copy of most recently lodged tax return.
    • Include all applicable prior year tax returns where amendments are required.
  2. A spreadsheet 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).
    • Here is a template.
    • It can also be helpful to include a column for the location of the crypto (i.e. wallet/exchange) and the quantity at each location.
    • If you have NFTs, then include the description, token ID, location (i.e. wallet/exchange), relevant blockchain (e.g. Ethereum/Solana/Binance Smart Chain) and acquisition transaction hash.
    • If it involves a SMSF, then we also need screenshots of your exchange/wallet after login, showing the crypto, the quantity and the date.
  3. A list of each exchange and wallet you have used throughout the period.
    • Here is a template.
    • For each wallet, the record must include all the relevant blockchains (e.g. Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polygon).
    • Also, for each exchange/wallet, list the types of transactions which have occurred (e.g. spot trading, futures trading, margin trading, earn/interest accounts, staking, liquidity pools, farming, mining, borrowings, gaming, etc).
  4. 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).
  5. All readonly API Keys and Secrets for your exchanges.
    • If you require assistance with gathering data from your exchanges/wallets, such as instructions for how to get CSV Exports/Setup APIs, then please let us know.
  6. If there is missing information, please provide as much detail as possible with respect to missing transaction data.
    • Such as what transaction details do you know are missing and what cryptocurrency were traded/mined/staked/earnt/sold/lost (coin ticker, approx. date and quantities).
    • The more detailed information you provide, the easier it will be to account for missing trade data.
  7. Loan and credit card statements associated with cryptocurrency investing.
  8. Agreements for all new cryptocurrency-related loans taken out during the year.
  9. Deductible and non-deductible percentage for cryptocurrency-related loans, if applicable.
    • If you have drawdown money on a cryptocurrency-related loan and used it for personal expenditure, we need to know.
  10. A complete breakdown listing all Australian dollar (and foreign currency, if applicable) deposits and withdrawal to exchanges for cryptocurrency purposes.
  11. The amount of Australian dollars (and foreign currency, if applicable) held on exchanges today (or 30 June if you have an exact record).
  12. A complete list of transactions where cryptocurrency has been used for non-investing purposes. Such as using cryptocurrency for:
    • Personal expenditure.
    • Donations.
    • Gifts.
  13. Records of anything else related to cryptocurrency that we need to know. For example:
    • Hardware wallet costs.
    • Mining/Staking costs.
    • Trading subscriptions.
    • Trading advice fees.
  14. Records of any tax deductible expenditure. If you are unsure if something is tax deductible, then include it and we can determine tax treatment.
