Let's get started with how to use Koinly

Sign up is the first thing you should do. This can be done by continuing with Coinbase or using your Google account. Or you can use your email. If you don't want to receive any communication from Koinly, you can un-tick "send me" box.

Next, you will need to add your wallets. There are many options for wallets and exchanges. Binance, Coinbase and Bittrex are the most popular ones.

After clicking on your wallet, a box will open and allow you to name your wallet. It's now time to import your wallet's data.

CoinSpot is the most popular crypto platform used by Australians. You can upload to CoinSpot using the CoinSpot API, or export a.csv file.

Your API key and API secret are required to import via API. These can be found by clicking on API near the WithdrawAUD tab.

You can upload your.csv data to replace the order history tab. To find it, navigate to the "order History" tab and click on both the "sends/receives CSV” and "buys/sells CSV” buttons. These files can then be downloaded and uploaded to the upload section of your Koinly account. Remember that if you are using CSV files, you must import all your deposits/withdrawals, and trades for all years.

After you have uploaded your files, you will see the "import complete” box below.

The "tax reports" tab can be accessed in Koinly by clicking the link at the top. Select the financial year that you wish to view reports by using the dropdown.

Scroll down and select a report type. You will choose between the ATO Report (myTax), or the "Complete Tax Report". This will depend on whether your crypto trading is done on an income account or a capital account.

An ABN is required for income accounts. You will also need to fill out the business schedule detailing your trading activity. Capital account will require you to fill out the CGT Section. You will be eligible for the 12-month CGT discount on holdings you have held more than 12 months before the sale.

This tax guide from CoinSpot will help you determine the classification of your income.

We recommend the "complete" tax report if you're unsure which report to choose. It contains all information needed for either the capital or income accounts.
