Denmark Tax Agency to Collect Info from Crypto Exchanges

Denmark Tax Agency to Collect Info from Crypto Exchanges

Traders’ data will now be collected by the Denmark tax agency from local cryptocurrency exchanges to audit their tax payments according to local news outlets.

On Monday, the Skattestyrelsen declared that for the first time in history, it has received access to data of the cryptocurrency traders. The access was approved by the Danish Tax Council. The agency can now potentially collect information such as the Central Person Registration (CPR) number, trades, names, and addresses. Three crypto exchanges will provide this data spanning from 2016 to 2018; the names of these exchanges have not been revealed yet.

Skattestyrelsen maintained in its application to the Tax council that it aims to obtain information regarding virtual currency transactions of unaccounted for companies and taxpayers. Recently, Danish authorities received information from Finland’s tax authorities that some Danish traders were active on an anonymous Finnish exchange. This news led to the abovementioned move by the agency.

The personal tax director at Skattestyrelsen, Karin Bergen, expressed his views in the announcement that there is a huge market which needs to be looked into by the agency.

The agency claimed previously that during the span of 2015-2017 the crypto trade of nearly 100 million Danish krone (DKK worth USD 15.35 million) was done by 2,700 Danish citizens on the Finland-based Bitcoin exchange.

Moreover, referring to the research done by the National Tax Board, it was claimed that nearly 450,000 local citizens want to invest in crypto. However, only half of them know about the taxation rules. Therefore, a probe into the matter was deemed necessary.
