Does CoinSmart report to the CRA?
CoinSmart is registered with both FINTRAC and the OSC - making it a highly compliant exchange that meets the regulatory standards of Canadian agencies - which includes collecting KYC data. Although neither CoinSmart nor the CRA have publicly declared a data request, it doesn't mean that CoinSmart hasn't faced pressure from the CRA to share customer data to ensure compliance. The CRA has previously won the right to obtain customer data from Coinsquare and may pursue other Canadian exchanges in the future.
How do I file my CoinSmart taxes?
The simplest way to generate your CoinSmart tax documents is to connect to Koinly. To do this, you just upload a CSV file of your CoinSmart transaction history. Koinly can then identify each time you sold or traded crypto on CoinSmart, calculate your gain or loss using the CRA approved adjusted cost basis method and generate your CoinSmart tax documents for you, ready to file with the CRA.
