How are COSS transactions taxed?

The exact tax implications on COSS transactions depend on which country you live in and the type of transactions you have made. In general, you must pay either capital gains tax or income tax on your cryptocurrency transactions on COSS.

  • Capital gains tax: Whenever you sell a cryptocurrency for more than you purchased it for, you generate a capital gain. On the other hand, if you sell the cryptocurrency for less than you paid initially, you have a capital loss, which can offset other gains in most cases.
  • Income tax: Earned cryptocurrency on COSS, such as staking, interest, bonuses, and referral rewards, is typically seen as taxable income from a tax perspective and must be reported in your tax return.

To learn more about how COSS transactions are taxed in your country, we recommend reading our in-depth guides to cryptocurrency taxes.

How do I file my COSS taxes?

First, you must calculate capital gains and income from all taxable transactions on COSS. When you have this information ready, you can report capital gains and income together with other forms of income such as employment and dividends in your annual tax return.

To calculate your capital gains, you must first export a complete history of all transactions made on COSS. Once you have this data, you can calculate your capital gains or losses by determining the price at which you bought the cryptocurrency (your cost basis) and the price at which you sold it (your proceeds). Luckily, Coinpanda can help you with this and generate ready-to-file tax forms quickly and easily.

After downloading your COSS tax statements from Coinpanda, the last step is to report the capital gains and income on your tax return before the deadline. Most countries allow you to self-declare taxes online in 2023, but you can also get help from a professional tax accountant to file taxes for you.

How do I troubleshoot the imported COSS transactions to Coinpanda?

While we strive every day to ensure the highest possible accuracy for importing transactions from COSS to Coinpanda, it can happen that either not all transactions are imported or that some data is imported incorrectly. Some reasons for this can be:

  • Changes in the COSS API
  • Updated CSV file format
  • COSS does not provide a complete record of all transactions

To get the best help from Coinpanda support, you must first identify which transactions are missing or incorrectly imported. To do this, we recommend comparing your transaction history on COSS with the transactions imported into your Coinpanda account.

Frequently asked questions

Does COSS provide tax documents?

No, COSS does not provide complete and ready-to-file tax documents. This is because COSS does not have knowledge of your transactions on other exchanges, platforms, or from your self-custody wallets.

How do I get COSS tax documents?

The easiest way to get tax documents and reports is to connect your COSS account with Coinpanda which will automatically import your transactions. After that, you can download complete tax reports for COSS.

Does COSS provide financial or end-of-year statements?

No, COSS does not provide a complete financial or end-of-year statement for your crypto transactions. However, you can get this using a crypto tax calculator.

Do I have to pay taxes on COSS?

Yes, all transactions on COSS involving the disposal of a crypto asset are in most cases taxable. You must also pay income tax on earned crypto such as staking, interest, or referral rewards.

Is transferring to COSS taxable?

No, transferring cryptocurrency to COSS is not taxed as long as you transfer between your personal wallets or exchange accounts.

How do I avoid paying taxes on COSS?

It is impossible to avoid paying taxes completely on COSS legally if you live in a country that taxes cryptocurrency. However, there are several ways you can reduce your taxes, such as tax loss harvesting.

Can COSS calculate my taxes?

COSS cannot calculate your taxes since it does not have knowledge of your transactions made on other exchanges or platforms. However, if you have only interacted with crypto on COSS your entire life, it could technically do so.

Is COSS safe?

COSS is generally considered to be a safe exchange. Although COSS follows industry best practices for safety and to prevent malicious attacks, there is always a risk associated with keeping your crypto on centralized third-party exchanges including COSS.
