Do I need to declare my account?
Digital assets accounts held in France do not need to be declared. If you have a Bitstack account, you do not have to declare it. However, if you've realized cryptocurrency gains, you will need to declare them when filing your taxes.
Bitstack is a company registered as a digital asset service provider (DASP) with the Financial markets authority (AMF) in France. If you are a French tax resident, you do not need to fill out the 3916 form: Declaration of an account opened or held abroad.
Do I need to declare my transactions?
In France, capital gains are subject to a single flat-rate withholding tax and are taxed at a global rate of 30%. You will therefore have to declare your taxable transactions when you file your taxes. You will find more information on the economie.gouv.fr website.
When should I do my tax declaration?
Your capital gains must be declared each year when you file your taxes. The dates are different depending on the country in which you are a fiscal resident.
Your capital gains must be declared each year even if you have already declared them the previous year. It is always for the year N-1. Effectively, if you opened an account in 2022, you will have to report it in 2023 during the 2022 tax filing season.
