HM Treasury has published a news story detailing how the UK has agreed a joint statement with 48 countries to help combat criminals using crypto-assets to evade and avoid tax.
“The Crypto-Asset Reporting Framework (CARF), spearheaded by the UK, is the OECD’s latest flagship tax transparency standard. It will mean crypto platforms will need to start sharing taxpayer information with tax authorities, which currently they do not do, ensuring these authorities can exchange information to enforce tax compliance. The CARF is expected to take effect in time for exchanges with other countries to start from 2027.”
