How do I check my eToro import is accurate?

Koinly crypto tax software is pretty clever, but incorrectly imported data can cause issues. Checking your transactions and correcting any inaccuracies lets Koinly calculate and generate the most accurate tax reports. There are some simple steps you can follow to do this.

Sync all wallets, exchanges and blockchains

Start by making sure all your wallets and exchange accounts are synced with Koinly. This lets Koinly identify which transactions are transfers and which are deposits or withdrawals.

Look out for big numbers

On your transactions page, you can filter by the type of transaction as well as by the amount to identify and amend any transactions that you believe to be incorrect. For example, large withdrawals or deposits that are actually transfers between wallets is an easy fix.

Review the labels of your transactions

Review the labels on your transactions. Koinly usually does this automatically, but there are some instances when transactions like rewards or mining income aren't marked in the imported data. It's always good to double check your transactions and use any of the following labels.

Withdrawal Labels (sending funds):

Withdrawals refer to sending coins, tokens and funds. Koinly sees these as a disposal of an asset, which makes the transaction subject to Capital Gains Tax in most countries. But, some withdrawals are tax free and you should label these using withdrawal tags.

  • Tag as lost: If you have crypto stolen, in many countries you can claim this as a loss.
  • Tag as costTag any transaction fees.
  • Tag as gift: Gifting crypto is often a non-taxable event in many countries, so make sure to tag these.
  • Sent to pool: Sending coins to a pool? Mark these as sent to pool. It lets Koinly know you still hold these assets

Deposit Labels (receiving funds):

Deposits refer to receiving new coins. Koinly sees deposits as a purchase at market price or an investment. They can be subject to Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax, depending on your location and the type of deposit. Check the labels to make sure the right tax is applied.

  • Tag as income: Crypto income is subject to Income Tax, not Capital Gains Tax - just like any other salary.
  • Tag as mining: Most countries treat mining as a form of income and apply Income Tax.
  • Tag as airdrop: Most countries see airdrops as a bonus and apply Income Tax.
  • Tag as loan interest: If you're loaning crypto and receiving interest, use this tag. Many countries apply Income Tax to interest.
  • Received from pool: Use this tag to mark the capital you originally sent to a pool, not any rewards from it.
  • Tag as fork: Just like airdrops, new coins from a fork may be subject to Income Tax.
  • Tag as reward: This tag can be used to mark any deposits you receive as a reward, for example staking rewards. In most countries, rewards are subject to Income Tax.

Exchange Labels (trading funds):

Trading crypto for crypto, buying crypto with fiat and selling crypto for fiat are exchanges. Trades are sometimes taxed (depending on where you live), buys are never taxed and sells are always taxed. Koinly calculates all this on your behalf, so there's only one exchange tag you may need.

  • Tag as swap: If a coin has exchanged its symbol or name, use the swap tag, as this is tax free.
