Apr 29, 2018 InsightsPress Releases 0

Vancouver, B.C.iComply Investor Services (iComply), a RegTech software company that has created the world’s first global regulatory automation service for blockchain securities, is today announcing that it has formed a strategic partnership with Cointaxes, whose platform opens up for Canadian taxpayers this week.

For those who are wondering, yes you need to pay taxes on your crypto, and no, your blockchain-based transactions not completely anonymous, so you’ll want to be on top of your taxes sooner rather than later.
The Cointaxes and iComply integration enable taxpayers to securely verify their identity and claim gains and losses across different wallets, automatically calculating liabilities and generating all required tax forms. iComply takes compliance and privacy one step further by making it possible to separate legal-entity identity information and the compliance ledger, removing privacy vulnerabilities and adding transparency by enabling compliance procedures to occur at the protocol level. This means the technology can be used in a variety of applications including blockchains, central banking systems, and stock exchanges as an enterprise compliance solution.
“Partnering with iComply made complete sense, we share a common mission to build the infrastructure for compliance in a blockchain-based future. Cointaxes handles the tax and consumer compliance angle, and iComply is focused on KYC and transaction monitoring for tokenized securities.” – Chris Kovalik, CEO of Cointaxes.
iComply’s product, iComplyID is a portable KYC (“know your customer”) solution already in use by cryptocurrency exchanges, fintech platforms, and initial coin offerings. Referred to as “Worldcheck for decentralized finance” the product is well suited to applications beyond blockchain securities such as traditional financial institutions, government, and healthcare applications.
