澳大利亚税务局将追踪比特币交易逃税者

澳大利亚税务局副专员Will Day表示,即将出台的反洗钱措施将“提高透明度”,赋予税务局更多的调查权力,比如对加密货币市场进行监督,强制对加密货币交易员进行身份检查。

新规定还将扩大澳大利亚交易报告分析中心(AUSTRAC)的管辖范围,使其能够访问加密货币交易所。此外,他们将遵循 “了解你的客户”(KYC)和“反洗钱”(AML)规则来预计交易所会泄露可疑的交易以及任何超过10000澳元的现金交易。

Paul Drum是全国税务联络小组(National Tax Liaison Group )的成员,也是澳大利亚会计师公会(CPA Australia)的负责人。他解释说,许多交易员都很好奇比特币投资是否不受资本利得税的影响。因为,目前澳大利亚税务局认为比特币是一项资产而不是金钱。

根据澳大利亚税务局的规定,某些标准规定了比特币使用方面的免税义务:

“如果你使用比特币购买商品或服务供个人使用或消费,比特币交易的任何资本利得或损失都将不予考虑 (作为个人用途的资产),只要比特币的成本在10000美元或以下。”

Drum称澳大利亚税务局这一步是“澳大利亚税务局以及澳大利亚交易分析报告中心标志性的一步,使他们能够首次访问和彻底审查加密货币外汇账户数据......比特币和其他加密货币匿名的有效性开始减弱。这些即将到来的变化意味着,人们不应认为自己可以永远躲在区块技术的背后,也不应认为不会被征税。”

税收政策一直是澳大利亚贸易商们困惑的话题,他们一直在思考投资的税收影响,包括其中一些投资的价值激增。由于澳大利亚税务局的已清楚地表明了意图,这些投资者应谘询专业税务顾问的意见,以了解对他们的期望。

On February 28, 2018, it was reported that the Australian Tax Office (ATO) will seek out bitcoin investors with outstanding tax liabilities.

ATO deputy commissioner Will Day said "increased transparency" will result from forthcoming AML measures that will grant the tax office increased probing powers next month. The measures will provide oversight of the cryptocurrency market and will include compulsory 100-point identification checks for cryptocurrency traders.

Currently, the ATO considers bitcoin to be an asset rather than money.

The new rules will also extend the jurisdiction of AUSTRAC, Australia's financial intelligence agency, enabling it to access cryptocurrency exchange records. In addition to following KYC and AML rules, exchanges will be expected to divulge transactions deemed suspicious, as well as any cash transaction in excess of 10,000 Australian dollars.

Paul Drum, who is a member of the National Tax Liaison Group and CPA Australia chief, explained that many traders are curious whether bitcoin investments are exempt from capital gains tax personal asset rules. "This is going to be a question asked time and again by cryptocurrency traders, and it will come down to the facts of each individual case," said Drum.

According to the ATO, certain criteria provides exemptions from tax liabilities pertaining to bitcoin use: "Where you use bitcoin to purchase goods or services for personal use or consumption, any capital gain or loss from disposal of the bitcoin will be disregarded (as a personal use asset) provided the cost of the bitcoin is $10,000 or less."

Drum called the ATO's move "a watershed moment for the ATO and Austrac, enabling them to access and thoroughly -review cryptocurrency exchange account data for the first time."

The esteemed accountant went on to say:

"The effectiveness of the -anonymity of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is starting to fade. These coming changes mean that people shouldn't -assume they can hide forever behind blockchain technology, nor should they -assume there are no tax consequences."

Clear tax policies have been a subject of bewilderment for Australian traders who have been wondering about the tax implications of their investments, some of which have ballooned in value. With the ATO's intentions clearly laid out, it may behoove these investors to consult professional tax advisors on what will be expected of them.
