The U.K. government on Wednesday called on crypto users to voluntarily disclose any unpaid capital gains or income taxes to avoid penalties, and published guidance on how to pay them.
The tax disclosures should reflect capital gains or income from exchange tokens like bitcoin (BTC), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and utility tokens.
Users who have already made crypto tax disclosures to the U.K. Treasury have 30 days from the disclosure date to make all necessary payments. If the deadline is not met, the Treasury will take steps to recover the money, and users may face penalties, the post said.
The aspiring crypto hub has been clarifying its stance on crypto tax. In 2021, the Treasury published a manual to help U.K. crypto holders pay taxes, and the country announced in March this year that people would have to declare their crypto separately in tax forms.
