Cryptocurrency exchanges around the world are starting to report more and more information to government agencies. In this guide, we analyze ByBit’s tax reporting policies within United Kingdom. We’ll also break down a simple way to report your ByBit taxes in minutes.

Does Bybit report to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC)?

HMRC has requested UK taxpayer information from the largest exchanges operating within the country. While it has not been confirmed whether Bybit has complied with requests of HMRC, other prominent exchanges such as Coinbase have stated that they cooperated by turning over transaction details for users who received more than £5,000 worth of crypto on its platform.

What does HMRC do with the information that Bybit provide?

HMRC has used data matching to crack down on crypto tax fraud. By using information provided by exchanges like Bybit, HMRC is able to track crypto transactions and identify individuals who have not met their tax obligations.

Do I have to pay taxes on my Bybit transactions?

Yes. In the UK, your transactions on Bybit or other platforms are subject to capital gains tax and ordinary income tax. 

If you’ve earned or disposed (ex. Sold or traded away cryptocurrency) during the year, you’ll have a tax liability to report to HMRC.
