What you will learn

By the end of this event the attendee should have the following competencies:  

    • Understand what cryptocurrencies are.
    • Possess a foundational understanding of blockchain technology and its current use.
    • Awareness of the investment opportunities in the market (NFTs, Metaverse, utility tokens etc.).
    • Be able to advise clients about the tax treatment of cryptocurrency transactions according to SARS.
    • Be updated on the latest regulatory developments in the cryptocurrency market. 


Cryptocurrencies have existed for more than a decade now but public knowledge of this technology is still limited. Accountants, auditors and tax practitioners must consider important key questions on the treatment of transactions involving cryptocurrencies.

A common question for an accountant is the accounting treatment of cryptocurrencies and earnings that are derived from them. Careful consideration must also be given to how SARS will assess cryptocurrencies. How would an accountant advise a client who wants to invest in cryptocurrencies?
