That’s great news for you, but now the taxman is interested too.
Crypto and DeFi investors are increasingly investing in Non-Fungible Tokens or NFTs, having started the trend now being promoted by sports stars and A listers.
As a consequence, we are seeing increasing numbers of clients who have traded in NFTs and are now concerned about being under HMRC’s spotlight.
Whether you are a serious NFT speculator or a dabbler in fun art such as Bored Apes or CryptoKitty, here are a few things that you need to do.
- Ensure that you keep detailed records of all your NFT trading transactions which should include:
a. Transaction date
b. Item traded
c. Cost price and selling price
d. Quantities sold
- Be prepared to share this information with HMRC even if you don’t think that you are liable for UK tax on your NFT trading
- Calculate your tax liability and ensure that you use these personal tax allowances efficiently.
If you find the tax situation daunting, you should take advice from a specialist crypto tax accountant who knows UK tax law and obligations.
