France Won’t Tax Crypto-Only Trades, Will Tax Crypto-to-Fiat Sales

French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said on Sept. 12 that French authorities won’t tax crypto-to-crypto trades, but will tax when cryptocurrencies are sold for fiat currency.

Bloomberg Tax reported on Le Maire’s declarations on Sept. 12. Per the report he noted:

“We believe that the moment the gains are converted into traditional money is the right time to assess tax.”

The author of the report also explains that such an approach to taxing cryptocurrency trading would help with tracking transactions, which he believes to be a common challenge in crypto-to-crypto trading. Le Maire also reportedly addressed Value-Added Tax (VAT) application to cryptocurrencies.

More precisely, he explained that VAT is to be applied to cryptocurrency transactions only when they are used to acquire an asset or a service. France is reportedly already implementing the new approach to cryptocurrency taxation.
