Our aim with Koinly is to make it easy for both investors and accountants to generate tax reports that comply with local laws. Ireland in particular has a unique way of reporting capital gains so existing solutions require a lot of manual work - Koinly solves that," said Robin Singh, founder, Koinly.

Tax agencies are waking up
The crypto economy is worth over £100B so it is no wonder that tax agencies want their fair share. Last month HMRC requested information from crypto exchanges on their users - in an attempt to track down tax avoiders. The USA's tax agency has gone a step further and sent out notices to over 10,000 crypto investors whose details it acquired from Coinbase in 2017. As bitcoin's reach continues to grow, thousands of investors are finding themselves on the wrong side of the law.
Founded in 2018 by a former Fintech engineer and University of Manchester alum, Robin Singh, Koinly is a fast-growing crypto tax startup. In the past year alone the company has helped thousands of crypto investors track and generate tax reports for funds worth over $250m.
