Tax reporting 2019 and new pricing

Tax reporting 2019 and new pricing

Early Birds, watch out! From now on it is possible to create tax reports for the tax year 2019! You can determine the current tax burden and carry out tax planning calculations.

If you want to know your current tax burden from crypto transactions and how it changes when you carry out transactions, you can simply calculate it with our tool.

For example, you would like to participate in a Binance IEO, but don’t know whether the sale of your BNBs is already outside the one-year period? Then simply create the corresponding transaction and check the tax effects in the report.

As every year we reward our Early Adopters with the Early Bird discount of 25% on all tax reporting products for 2019 !

New pricing model

We have also decided, after long consideration, to leave our single pricing model and introduce differentiated pricing.

FREE – up to a total of 50 transactions
It is now possible to create tax reports free of charge if the total number of transactions does not exceed 50. So those who have few trades and mainly HODL can use our tool for free. They can, for example, evaluate whether they are below the exemption limit and, if required, generate a complete tax report.

PRO – up to 10,000 transactions per tax year
Most of our users fall into this category. Here the price is EUR 199,99 per tax year (incl. 19% VAT) and corresponds to our previous pricing.

UNLIMITED – nomen est omen
Users who have more than 10.000 transactions in a tax year need a UNLIMITED license. The price for the UNLIMITED license is EUR 599,99 per tax year (incl. 19% VAT).

With the new pricing system, we want to ensure that we can continue to offer all users the best service at a fair price. Average users will not be impacted by the resources needed by the intensive users and the latter receive the computing and support required for their purposes.

Upgrade for existing customers
Customers who have previously purchased a license will automatically receive an upgrade to UNLIMITED. Thus, even with the “old” licenses, you can create unlimited tax reports.

Features
In the meantime we have continuously developed the CryptoTax application further and offer extensive features which are included in all price categories FREE, PRO and UNLIMITED:

  • Data import from over 20 exchanges and wallets and generic import for all other sources
  • Support for over 8,000 coins with legally compliant conversion to EUR
  • Separate calculation for each account to realize the maximum savings potential
  • Automatic linking of deposits and withdrawals between different accounts
  • Tax consideration of Airdrops, ICOs, Hard Forks, OTC trading, Lending, Staking, Masternodes, Bounties, Swaps, Gifts and Margin Trading
  • Tax consideration of fees
  • Tax logic certified by a Big 4 accounting firm
  • Preparation of all tax-relevant documents in accordance with German tax law

We want to make your tax return process even easier and will continue to develop the CryptoTax app with full commitment to make it even better, faster and more user-friendly!

Thank you very much for your great support!

CryptoTax launches API platform for exchanges and other cryptocurrency service providers

CryptoTax launches API platform for exchanges and other cryptocurrency service providers

We are excited to announce the release of our professional CryptoTax API, which allows institutions to easily build their own approved white label tax solution. It is a major step in making crypto tax solutions easily accessible for exchanges, banks, funds and other institutions dealing with blockchain-based assets. Utilizing the API our clients get access to our unique tax engine with tax frameworks approved by a Big 4 accounting firm.

Expectations of crypto investors are changing rapidly, as the space matures and the competition becomes more intensive. They increasingly request the same level of convenience as they are used to from the traditional finance sector. Until now crypto investors are left alone with their obligation to file their taxes and the best they can get from a crypto exchange is a non-comprehensible CSV export. Given that CryptoTax sits at the epicenter of tax reporting for digital assets, we recognize the need to serve as a tax reporting platform for cryptocurrency service providers. With the launch of our CryptoTax API we make it easy for exchanges and other institutions to create tax reports for their customer and relief them from the reporting nightmare.

says Vladimir Tosovic, COO and Co-Founder of CryptoTax.

Features

In the first version our clients can use the API to generate approved tax reports for Germany, Switzerland and the US (coming soon). Furthermore, they can generate generic tax reports for any country in 30+ supported local currencies. We partner with a Big 4 accounting firm to continuously expand the number of jurisdictions, for which we can generate country-specific tax reports.

Our tax engine supports all transactions types in the crypto space and includes Airdrops, ICOs, Hard Forks, OTC Trades, Lending, Staking, Masternodes, Bounties, Swaps, Gifts and Margin Trading.

Whatever transaction is taking place our customers can easily create a tax report by simply calling our API.

You can find the full documentation on the API here.

Outlook

We aim to continuously grow and empower our tax engine and make it easy to access through the API. Besides expanding the geographical coverage of the country-specific tax reports we are working on solving additional tax reporting challenges of our institutional customers. One of them is the reporting of withholding taxes as well as FATCA and CRS, which looms over many crypto service providers.

Free Sandbox Access

Being the first crypto tax API provider we acknowledge the need to continuously develop and improve our service. Part of this effort is the invitation to access our sandbox tax API for free.

In order to get your sandbox API account please send a request to [email protected]

Partnership with CoinMarketCap continues to ensure highest data quality for CryptoTax solutions

Partnership with CoinMarketCap continues to ensure highest data quality for CryptoTax solutions

A reliable data base is indispensable for the accurate evaluation in tax and accounting fields. We recognized early that our exchange rates database, as an essential component of our solution suite, plays a decisive role. Especially in the environment of cryptocurrencies, the availability of qualitative data material and reputable data providers represents a difficult challenge for all data-driven services.

We are therefore very pleased to announce CoinMarketCap – the world’s leading data supplier of crypto-market data – as a cooperation partner for our product portfolio. Their professional API service provides the historical as well as daily updated price data available in our web application cryptotax.io/plugin-update. This enables us to further ensure that, in addition to the tax framework certified by one of the Big 4 accounting firms, the quantitative recording of transaction data also corresponds to the highest possible market standard and that we can further differentiate ourselves from competitors.

Since it is our highest goal to provide our clients with legally and economically correct and certified reporting and tracking solutions, we are pleased to have CoinMarketCap, another market leader in its special field, on board as our partner.

“This is an important step towards helping crypto traders to become tax compliant,”

said Klaus Himmer, CEO & co-founder of CryptoTax,

“We continue to differentiate by providing high quality and reliable tax tracking and reporting services. The long-standing experience of market data leader CoinMarketCap helps us to foster the fundamental value of our services, and I am confident that this partnership is an essential driver for the establishment of crypto assets as an aspiring asset class.”

We look forward to our cooperation!

CryptoTax Open Beta is live

CryptoTax Open Beta is live

We are very excited to announce that CryptoTax Open Beta has been launched today. Investors, traders and users of cryptocurrencies are finally able to generate certified tax documents according to German law.

Main Features

1. Linking deposits to withdrawals between accounts

In order to profit from the 1 year tax free holding period in Germany, you need to demonstrate the original time and cost of the acquisition. This is a big challenge for many crypto users, as it is very common to transfer the assets between accounts, exchanges and wallets, which makes it very difficult to track the original acquisition data. However with our tool you can flawlessly connect deposits and withdrawals across multiple accounts and automatically transfer the historical acquisition data between account based FIFO chains. This feature will assist our users in profiting from the 1 year tax free holding period, while staying compliant with the legal requiriements.

2. Consideration of Airdrops, ICOs, Hard Forks, OTC Trading, Lending and Staking

Now the user can comfortably consider Airdrops, ICOs, Hard Forks, OTC Trading, Lending and Staking in their tax reports without worrying about the tax classification. Our application will automatically apply the correct tax logic for each transaction marked as one of the above mentioned special cases. For income out of Mining and Masternodes there will be a classification soon.

3. Data Import

With the start of Open Beta we support the following sources for the data import:

  • Kraken CSV import
  • Poloniex CSV import
  • Binance CSV/XLS import
  • Bitcoin.de CSV import
  • Generic CSV & XLS import for all other sources

We are aware of the need for more integration options and are working hard on implementing additional data sources and API imports. In the meantime the users can use the generic import to consider all of the tax relevant transactions out of different sources in their report.

4. Big 4 certified tax logic and compliance

We have partnered with a Big 4 accounting firm to ensure the maximum compliance with German tax law. Our tax logic has been developed in cooperation with and is approved by our partner. Our tax reports include all relevant tax documents.

How to start?

Register and start using the application here.

However in order to generate a tax report, you will need to purchase a licence at reduced price of EUR 99 instead of EUR 199 per tax year.

We hope we can make your tax reporting process as easy and painless as possible and are looking forward to welcome you on board.

Thank you very much for your support!

Your CryptoTax Team.
