The world of digital finance is witnessing a significant shift. Recently, 47 countries pledged to implement the Crypto-Asset Reporting Framework (CARF) by 2027, as per the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). This new international standard aims at the automatic exchange of information between tax authorities regarding cryptocurrency and digital asset transactions.

What Does CARF Entail?
Developed under the G20’s mandate, CARF will require detailed reporting on types of cryptocurrency and digital asset transactions, whether facilitated through intermediaries or service providers. This move signifies a concerted effort to enhance tax compliance and clamp down on evasion in the dynamic sphere of digital assets.

The European Union’s Approach
Parallel to CARF, the European Union has adopted the Directive on Administrative Cooperation (DAC8), a rule focused on cryptocurrency tax reporting. DAC8 extends tax collectors’ jurisdiction to monitor and evaluate all cryptocurrency transactions within EU member states, marking a step towards greater transparency and regulation.
