Finding good crypto tax accountants or firms near you is a difficult task. The constant changes in the tax and regulatory aspect of trading crypto make it even harder for investors and accountants to keep up with the changes and comply with rules.
On top of the changing environment in crypto regulations, they differ substantially across countries, with some regions showing much more advanced legislation on the intricacies of crypto taxes than others.
Today, we put together a list of crypto accountants ready to help you worldwide with your crypto tax doubts.
In this article:
What are crypto accountants?
Crypto accountants are essential certified accountants who are experts in crypto taxes in your country. A crypto accountant is essentially a regular accountant that is fluent in taxes concerning crypto activities (e.g., trading, mining, getting paid).
As we’ve covered before in our guide for crypto taxes, there‘s no such denominated tax as a “crypto tax.” In most countries, legislation for taxes regarding crypto trading falls in the capital gains tax or income tax category.
However, in the crypto space, it became common to refer to all taxable events from crypto trading as “crypto taxes.” In the same way, it has become popular to connote accountants who have experience with crypto trading as “crypto accountants.”
How to find crypto tax firms?
The first step in finding crypto-ready accountants is to make sure the companies or CPAs you’re talking to have had prior crypto expertise. A bonus would be that your own accountant has crypto trading experience and fully understands the intricacies of crypto.
We would advise on becoming involved in online communities, especially Crypto Twitter, to find active and experienced accountants. For reference, check this list of the best 65 Crypto Twitter accounts, including crypto CPAs.
When you’re evaluating which firms or accountants you’re choosing, make sure they are on top of the changes in your country’s regulations as tax rates and other settings could rapidly change and be valid to your situation.
Finally, for you to make the most out of the services of a crypto accountant, you must have your trades in order and aware of the requirements to make your life much easier when it’s time to put everything together in your tax return.
