Good to know
It'll take a few minutes for your KuCoin account to auto-sync with your Koinly account. Koinly is just going through your transaction history and identifying the various taxable events to generate your tax report accurately. KuCoin had a massive update in 2019. For users who had an account prior to this update, there may be some issues with transactions importing incorrectly. Don't worry if this applies to you, you can just use the CSV import file method below instead. If you've already used the KuCoin API method - make sure to delete your KuCoin API transaction data before uploading your KuCoin CSV file(s).
For those using KuCoin futures - this has a separate API which you'll need to integrate with Koinly in addition to the KuCoin API. See how here.

How to import your KuCoin tax report CSV file to Koinly

On KuCoin

  1. Sign in to your KuCoin account.
  2. Select orders from the top right corner, then select the type of transaction data you'd like to export from the drop down menu. KuCoin separates transaction history into different CSV files. So there are separate exports for trades, margin trades, deposits and withdrawals and so on. You'll need all of these different transaction files to upload to Koinly to create a complete transaction history.
  3. Once selected, select trade history.
  4. Select your date range.
  5. Select export to CSV.
  6. Select confirm.

On Koinly

  1. Sign in to your Koinly account and head to the wallet page.
  2. Select add new wallet: KuCoin.
  3. Select import from file.
  4. Upload your CSV file.

Good to know
KuCoin CSV files can cover a maximum time period of 100 days, as well as splitting transaction history into different CSV files. For some of our users, this means a lot of separate CSV files! There's an easy way to get around this though. If you contact KuCoin support, you can request your full transaction history. KuCoin support team are normally happy to provide this and you'll end up with one easy, simple file to import instead of multiple files. Another important thing to know is that KuCoin has different files for trades and orders. Koinly only supports trades files from KuCoin. KuCoin has a CSV export limit of 5 CSV files every 24 hours. This isn't a huge problem for most users, but it's a good reason not to leave your tax returns until last minute if you've got a lot of transactions spanning a long period of time!
