France Won’t Tax Crypto-Only Trades, Will Tax Crypto-to-Fiat Sales

France Won’t Tax Crypto-Only Trades, Will Tax Crypto-to-Fiat Sales

French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said on Sept. 12 that French authorities won’t tax -to-crypto trades, but will tax when cryptocurrencies are sold for fiat currency.
Bloomberg Tax reported on Le Maire’s declarations on Sept. 12. Per the report he noted:
“We believe that the moment the gains are converted into traditional money is the right time to assess tax.”
Easier transaction tracking
The author of the report also explains that such an approach to taxing trading would help with tracking transactions, which he believes to be a common challenge in -to-crypto trading. Le Maire also reportedly addressed Value-Added Tax (VAT) application to cryptocurrencies.
More precisely, he explained that VAT is to be applied to transactions only when they are used to acquire an asset or a service. France is reportedly already implementing the new approach to cryptocurrency taxation.
Meanwhile, in Portugal
As Cointelegraph reported at the end of August, Portugal’s Tax Authority has clarified that both trading and payments in will not be taxed in the country.
Also in August, a tax bill seeking to allow the exclusion of gain or loss on like-kind exchanges of virtual currency has been introduced in the United States House of Representatives.
