The announcement by the FCSA on 20 October 2022 that crypto assets a.k.a. cryptocurrencies, were now recognised as a financial product naturally brought with it questions from accounting professionals. The main questions were:

  1. What is the tax treatment of transactions involving this financial product?
  2. What is the accounting treatment of crypto assets?

This webinar aims to fully answer the second question by first delving into the background of cryptocurrencies, followed by a comprehensive discussion on the correct IFRS-based accounting treatment of transactions involving cryptocurrencies and other digital assets.
