Cointree is a popular Australian exchange with more than 240 cryptocurrencies, high levels of security, and straightforward fees. Whatever your Cointree investment, Koinly can help with your crypto taxes and filing with the ATO - connect via API or upload a CSV file of your Cointree transaction history.
The ATO is clear that your Cointree 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:
Cointree may report to the ATO. As an AUSTRAC registered exchange, Cointree is part of a data sharing program with the relevant government authorities - including the ATO.
The ATO expects you to report any capital gains, losses, or income from crypto in your annual tax return, either using the myTax portal or the NAT 2541 & NAT 2670 forms.
To do this, you need to calculate your capital gains, losses, and any income from Cointree (and any other crypto platforms), but for busy investors, this can be a lot of work. You’ll need to identify your cost basis for each asset, identify your taxable transactions and the kind of tax that applies, calculate your gains and losses using an ATO-approved cost basis method, and separate short and long-term gains.
This is why most investors opt to use crypto tax software like Koinly. Koinly does all this for you and generates your myTax report, ready to file with the ATO. Here’s how it works.
