I was reading this thread:

 

https://community.ato.gov.au/t5/General-tax-questions/Share-Trader-amp-GST/m-p/4301#M3137

 

I'm wondering do the same rules apply to cryptocurrency trading (basically the identical scenario as the above thread, but with crypto instead of shares)? Do we need to register for GST if we are doing cryptocurrency day trading/speculation and have over $75000 turnover?

 

I know there's been a few changes to the law in the last year regarding GST treatment of crypto.
