Finally, an Australian crypto tax reporting tool has arrived
In this Spotlight feature, we will be focusing on Sublime IP’s new Australian crypto tax reporting tool for aussie investors and traders. Launched by the well-established IP provider last month, the web app is designed to make capital gains tax and traders’ income tax simple.
The tool works with a range of Australian exchanges – and if you can’t see yours in Sublime IP’s exchange list, it says it will integrate with the exchange and even import your data. It provides online tutorials for importing exchange data from Binance, BTC Markets, Coinbase, Coinspot and KuCoin. Soon Independent Reserve and BitFinex will be added to the list.
If you want to rid yourself of the pain if EOY tax reporting, this online tool offers more than a helping hand. It includes a calculator, for both Australian crypto traders and Capital Gains Tax (CGT), which estimates tax payable based on personal income and other CGT such as shares. The tool has received a good response in online forums and a universal thumbs up for customer service.
Sublime IP has been proactive in helping Australian crypto investors make the most of its technology. While it admits the tool is still in its infancy, it is already proving its worth. Users have been quick to point out its benefits.
The basics of the web-app
So, how does the app work? Firstly, it converts all your trades to AUD values using historical crypto trades and rates. Simply download your exchange transaction history and upload it to the app. The result is an expertly formatted spreadsheet with all the relevant information. The goal is to help app users quickly understand how each cryptocurrency has performed in FIAT. And without the need to look up historical pricing themselves.
Sublime IP says:
“Spreadsheets quickly become overwhelming, especially if you have more than a handful of trades – let alone thousands.”
What about security? This Australian crypto tax reporting tool does not save uploaded files. It only stores your data temporarily – while it converts the information. When the conversion is complete, your file will be removed. Sublime IP says it intends to add a “nuke account” feature so, those who want to, can delete the data themselves.
How much does it cost?
And pricing? There are three levels of service packages. The one you can’t afford not is try is the free trial. Use it for up to 50 trades in the Financial year. You can link trades using FIFO, LIFO or a custom method.
The free trial also allows you to export data in an accountant-friendly CSV and view profitability per asset.
Other pricing options are full access for $44, which includes up to 10000 trades in the FY as well as Australian support, and custom packages. Prices are likely to increase to $66 in the future.
