How are Coinstash transactions taxed?
The ATO is clear that your Coinstash transactions may be subject to either Capital Gains Tax or Income Tax and the amount of tax you’ll pay depends on how much you earn and how long you’ve held your asset. You can learn more in our Australia crypto tax guide, but in brief:
Capital Gains Tax: If you sold or swapped crypto on Coinstash, you’ll pay Capital Gains Tax. Although it’s referred to as Capital Gains Tax, it’s based on the same Income Tax rates - so you’ll pay between 0% to 45% tax depending on how you earn. However, if you hold your asset for more than a year, you’ll get a 50% discount.
Income Tax: If you earned new tokens on Coinstash, the ATO generally views this as additional income and you may need to pay Income Tax upon receipt.
Does Coinstash report to the ATO?
Yes. Coinstash is an AUSTRAC registered exchange and as such may share customer data with government agencies upon request.
