Liston Newton's Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.

Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. Their Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.

Frequently asked questions

What is cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is a type of currency that’s 100% virtual. It’s underpinned by blockchain technology, making it extremely secure, and it’s traded entirely online. Each digital transaction is recorded indelibly as a digital record, and powerful cryptographic algorithms keep it safe from external threats.

Is cryptocurrency the same as blockchain?

Not exactly. Blockchain is the technology that cryptocurrency uses to operate. It’s a decentralised digital ledger that records every crypto transaction.

How do I store cryptocurrency?

Cryptocurrency is stored in a digital wallet, which is typically held securely on an online crypto exchange (the platform on which you trade crypto).

How is cryptocurrency taxed?

Cryptocurrency isn’t governed by typical investment income rules. It’s treated by the ATO as property, meaning it comes under capital gains tax rules. So when selling crypto, you get taxed on the difference between the value you bought it for, and its market value at the time of the sale. If your cryptocurrency has grown in value, you’re making a capital gain, and you pay CGT on the profit of the sale. You must declare this capital gain on your annual tax return. If you make a loss on the sale, you’re required to report the loss on your tax return.
