Crypto Tax Fundamentals
for UK-based Investors, Traders, and Miners:
Dispel uncertainty, cut through the noise, and use the rules to your advantage
Since our inception, we've spoken to hundreds of readers, taking their questions and concerns directly to HMRC and tax professionals. Using this knowledge, we have created an e-course that takes you from first principles to a firm grasp of the tax concepts you need to understand as an investor, trader, or miner of cryptocurrency in the UK.
It's common to have mental blocks when it comes to taxes due to anxiety, stress, or just the prospect of tedium. Sadly, we can’t escape them!
The best way to deal with irrational fears is education. Nobody studies tax systematically unless they want to become professionals in the field, so everyone has different gaps in knowledge that they're unaware of. Our course starts at ground zero and assumes you know nothing about tax and Self Assessment, providing you with a solid foundation to support your future crypto pursuits.
Cut through the noise
If you've ever fallen down the rabbit hole on crypto taxes, you know how frustrating it can be finding clear guidance on the subject. Information is often jumbled with American rules, written by accountants for other accountants, or hidden away in some gov.uk manual that is super boring to read.
We suffered through HMRC manual footnotes, badgered their technical inspectors, and pestered tax professionals to get the information you need. It’s now all compiled in an easy-to-digest, methodical format. Save yourself hours of wild googling!
Use the rules to your advantage
It's easy to trigger taxable events without realising you are doing so. You may have read of traders who are horrified to discover they owe more tax than they hold in cash terms.
On the flip side, a true understanding of the tax schemes in play can help you reduce your accounting load. We teach you how to isolate and identify taxable events, demonstrate example calculations, and provide tips to modify your behaviour and make savings.
What you will get:
6 video modules with over 90 slides of original content, charts, diagrams, and example calculations

Who is this not for?
This course is for individuals - not companies. We will not address Corporation Tax, although we will touch on the difference between running a business as a sole trader and operating a limited company.
If you are already proficient in filing for Self Assessment and really just need more niche advice - eg. how to deal with particular coins, masternodes or very specific residency issues, you might prefer to consult a tax professional directly instead.
