Investing into Bitcoin & Co: Accounting, tax and regulatory considerations
The past few years have seen rapid growth in crypto assets which are digital assets recorded on a distributed ledger. The success of bitcoin and Co. has not escaped the public eye and crypto assets seem to be more than ever on the edge of mass adoption.
More recently, financial institutions and asset managers developed new investment products, payment service providers include crypto currencies in their payment platforms and multinational groups are allocating cash to digital assets as a hedge against inflation.
How are crypto assets treated from an accounting and tax perspective? What is the regulatory environment applicable to funds investing into crypto assets? And, what is the new EU initiative in regard to reporting obligations on crypto assets (DAC 8)? All these questions will be addressed during this webinar.
