Crypto client confidential

Friday, April 29, 2022 - 10:00 to 10:40

You'll hear from:

Regardless of how you see the world of cryptocurrency, with its rising popularity it’s tough for even the most bitcoin-averse accountant to avoid it completely. The FCA’s latest estimate puts the number of cryptocurrency holders in the UK at 2.3m, a figure that’s rising rapidly. 

This in turn has led to an influx of crypto-based enquiries for accountants from clients unsure how to account for their gains. In the past, many have been reluctant to take on clients in a space that is as complex as it is volatile. However, with digital currencies moving into mainstream, an increasing number of crypto-curious accountants are joining early pacesetters in taking on more clients in the field.

This episode of Tech Pulse will lay out the basics of cryptocurrencies, touch on the tax and accounting implications in the space, speak with accountants currently working with crypto clients and provide real-life examples of client work.

By attending this episode you’ll learn how:

  • The world of cryptocurrency interacts with accountancy
  • HMRC currently treats cryptocurrencies
  • Accountants are working with individuals and businesses in the crypto space

Join us and bring your cryptocurrency questions - we’ll try and answer as many as we can throughout the show.
