Generating Your BitMEX Tax Forms

Easily calculate your bitmex taxes and create the correct tax reports to submit to your tax agency. Koinly fully integrates with BitMEX and makes tax reporting a piece of cake.

API Import CSV File Import

Let's start

The first step is to download all your transactions from bitmex and import them into Koinly. There are a couple of ways you can do this:

  • As BitMEX has an API, the easiest way to do so is to simply connect your API keys (api key, api secret). After that Koinly will sync your history and you are ready to create your tax document.

  • If you don't have access to your API keys you can also import transactions by importing CSV files.

  • If the above method(s) are not possible for you, you can even add the transactions manually via Koinly's web interface.

Note that if you decide to use CSV files, you have to make sure to import your deposits/withdrawals and trades for ALL previous years - not just the current one!

That's it. Don't forget to tag your airdrops/forks so they show up as Income on your generated crypto tax reports!

  3. RECOMMENDED Leave Key Permissions blank and Withdraw unchecked

  5. Copy the API Key and Secret

Importing BitMEX transactions manually via CSV files

Follow these steps to download your transaction files:

  1. Sign into your BitMex Account
  2. Click on the Balances tab
  3. Click on Save as CSV in the top right corner
  4. NOTE: BitMEX exports csv files in your local timezone so you must set the correct timezone when importing into Koinly!
  5. Upload the downloaded file to Koinly
