Are you considering adding crypto to your diversified portfolio?

Recent changes to the GST and income tax treatment of crypto-assets means that those looking to invest will need to understand what tax obligations apply to them.

In our latest webinar we explore what crypto-assets are and how they are taxed, as well as a range of topics within the crypto world such as:

  • IRD work in relation to crypto-assets and why they are such a focus at present.

  • Work being undertaken by Governments around the world in sharing data on crypto-assets, and what this could mean for you.

  • The difference between mining and staking, and how this is treated.

  • What potential differences can arise between actively purchasing and being remunerated in cryptocurrencies.

  • NFTs, what happens if you buy one.
