Crypto Industry News:
The British Tax, Payment and Customs Authority, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC), has updated its guidelines for taxing cryptocurrencies for businesses and individuals. The UK government tax agency, which manages taxes along with other financial policies, has issued tax guidance updates that further clarify its position on the taxation of businesses and individuals associated with cryptocurrencies.
The guidelines present HMRC’s views on cryptocurrency transactions that apply taxes, how to submit tax returns and accounting practices. It also considers the taxation of exchange tokens, while stating that the rules for utility or security tokens will be added in the future.
Companies that buy or sell tokens, extract or exchange them for other assets, or provide goods or services in exchange for tokens are required to pay one or more different types of taxes. These taxes include income tax, corporate income tax, capital gains tax, tax and social security contributions.
The tax authority has explicitly stated that it does not consider any of the current types of cryptocurrencies as money or currency.
HMRC also recognized that the cryptocurrency sector is a rapidly changing sector, therefore it will analyze the facts of each case separately and apply the relevant tax regulations in line with what actually happened instead of relying solely on theory.
Previously, HMRC considered cryptocurrency trading to be the same as gambling. However, the latest update of the tax guidelines states that the agency no longer thinks so.
