Accounting for Cryptocurrencies: Transactions, Tracking & Tax

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will educate professionals, particularly accountants and CPAs (but also financial advisors and lawyers), about the nuances and challenges with cryptocurrency accounting for business entities (and by default individuals).

Using and securing cryptocurrency is one thing but accounting for it is another. The unique aspects of cryptocurrency create simultaneous parallel transactional paths one for taxable events and one for business operations for every single transaction. Meanwhile, limitations of key data points and other information (normally considered basic accounting information) with block explorers, exchanges and wallets coupled with client’s poor crypto process flows creates a challenging landscape for professionals to navigate.

What will students learn?
You will learn best practices for designing and managing cryptocurrencies for maximum accounting, audit and tax value for your practice and for advising your clients while eliminating as many headaches as possible. Newbies can also benefit from this course by understanding the importance of strategic process for using cryptocurrency.

This course is appropriate for people new to the industry, professionals, and developers who want to understand taxation and cryptoassets.

Prerequisite: none, although a basic understanding of blockchains and/or Bitcoin will help
