Ernst & Young's CAAT to assist Cryptocurrency Accounting and Tax Reporting

The blend of Fintech and Auditing firms have always been in constant collaboration and one of the swiftly growing sectors.

One of the big four auditing firms, Ernst & Young (EY) has unveiled a tool for accounting and preparing taxes on cryptocurrency holdings.

EY recently acquired technology assets and related patents of the Crypto-Asset Accounting and Tax (CAAT), the technology developed by Elevated Consciousness. CAAT would enable its members' firms of the accounting giant as well as their clients to better assess the risk associated with the reporting of taxable income for crypto assets, as per the tax blockchain leader at EY, Michael Meisler.

Chirag Patel, the leader of the Foundry, had said: “For the Foundry, this marks an important milestone in our exciting journey to launch new digital businesses that drive transformation and growth for EY member firms and create new unique value for EY clients.

The CAAT tool originally came from a team of entrepreneurs led by CEO VJ Anma.”

The mechanism in brief: The CAAT to fetch information about crypto-transactions from predominant exchanges, consolidate data from various sources, which in turn generate reports, such as, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax returns exclusively pertaining to crypto-transactions. EY reckons a significant growth in the number of clients owning crypto assets.

The revenues derived out of crypto-transactions are to be categorized under capitals gains and income and that would be reported into Form 1040 Schedule D of the US taxation.

Furthermore, EY also wanted to extend their services in audit in the segment by announcing “Blockchain Analyzer” back in April 2018. They intended to assist enterprises in examining blockchain solutions. Particularly, with a view to collate, conserve and consolidate data from numerous distributed ledgers.
