How does the UK tax Cryptocurrency and Cryptoassets?
The major problem with the crypto tax in the UK is that it has no specific tax legislation. So, crypto profits in the UK are taxed in various ways based on the taxpayer’s circumstances and actions.
When it comes to holding, selling, and buying cryptocurrencies, you must consider Capital gains, inheritance, and income taxes.
What is meant by Cryptocurrency and Capital Gains Tax?
Investment activities based on the involved value and frequency are buying and selling cryptocurrencies. So, the UK government collects capital tax gains on people’s profits from these investment activities. These taxes have exemptions yearly. However, investors must pay the taxes if they exceed the annual exemptions.
When Does a Crypto Asset Become Liable?
Crypto assets are not only liable to capital gain taxes when you sell them for money. When you exchange crypto assets, for example, from Bitcoin to Ether, gift them to someone, or pay for products with them, you will pay capital gain taxes.
There are usually complexities that come with calculating these things, especially when you have other assets you want to dispose of in that tax year. Our crypto tax team can assist you with accurately preparing the tax returns while calculating the gains. Also, we will effectively structure the payment in a tax-efficient manner.

Mining can also be classified as crypto trading based on your frequency and reward value. So, at this point, it becomes liable to income tax. Our team can help you bypass the complication of calculating mining income tax. Also, the same applies to holding crypto assets and disposing of them later.
Airdrops sent directly to wallets do not attract income tax. However, when you want to exchange the airdropped crypto assets, it will be liable to income tax. You will need professional advice to efficiently pay this crypto asset income tax.
Crypto Assets and Inheritance Tax
