A detailed insight into crypto tax written by UK accountants
- Is DeFi trading taxable in the UK?
Yes. In most tax jurisdictions DeFi activity is taxable. HMRC have issued detailed guidance on the tax treatment of DeFi activity which we summarise in our DeFi tax guide.
- Is Recap’s Ethereum integration really automated?
Yes, Recap's Ethereum integration is fully automated. Connect your wallet by pasting in your public wallet address, and your transactions will be fetched and updated in almost real-time.
- Do tax authorities know about my DeFi activity?
It's likely that tax authorities like HMRC and the IRS know about some DeFi activity. Although many DeFi protocols don't require KYC, it's possible to link user activity between accounts and wallets. Users engaged in DeFi should be compliant with the tax rules of their jurisdiction.
- What is DeFi?
DeFi, short for Decentralised Finance, operates on blockchains like Ethereum and Solana, using smart contracts to automate transactions, making activities such as trading, borrowing, lending, and liquidity pools more accessible to global users.
- Does Recap support all blockchains?
Recap supports all blockchains by CSV or manual entry and has automated integrations for Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and Polygon. Check out all our integrations.
- Why is DeFi tax so complicated?
DeFi tax is complicated because different tax treatments apply depending on whether the nature of the transaction is capital or income and whether beneficial ownership of the token changes. This has to be considered carefully for individual transactions as it varies depending on the different smart contracts and mechanisms employed by the blockchain or protocol.
