Digital tokens, such as cryptocurrencies and NFTs, have established themselves as a new asset class in less than a decade. The world has never seen their likes before. Significant questions therefore arise as to how they should be accounted for and taxed.

In this webinar, a panel of Grant Thornton tax Partners from Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong and India will discuss the impact digital tokens are having on tax (and vice versa) in their jurisdictions, and try to help decode some of the fundamental tax and accounting issues for players operating in this new universe.

Key focus areas will include

  • What is the current state of undress amongst tax authorities?
  • Where could the taxation of digital tokens be heading?
  • Issues facing digital nomads
