Canada to enforce cryptoasset reporting by 2027 to align with global standards and enhance financial transparency

The Canadian government declared in the 2024 federal budget its plans to adopt the Crypto-Asset Reporting Framework (CARF), which was approved by the OECD in August 2022. The framework was developed by the OECD at the request of the G20 back in April 2021 and was designed to covers a broad range of digital assets and is designed to close the information gaps that tax authorities face with the increasing use of digital currencies and other crypto-assets in the global economy excluding specific types such as central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). The CARF, supported by 48 countries, outlines strict guidelines for reporting that Canada’s framework will mirror.

The framework covers a broad range of digital assets and is designed to close the information gaps that tax authorities face with the increasing use of digital currencies and other crypto-assets in the global economy.

  • Regulations are set to take effect in the 2026 calendar year, so all cryptoasset transactions over $50,000 USD will need to be reported to financial authorities, with the first data sharing exchange occurring in 2027.
  • This gives entities nearly three years from now to comply with the new standards such as capturing and reporting detailed customer information, such as names, addresses, dates of birth, and taxpayer identification numbers.
  • The major challenge will be the technological overhaul required to track and report crypto transactions efficiently. This presents opportunities for regtech companies specializing in compliance software, which could see significant growth over time.

Why This Matters

As digital assets and digital currencies become increasingly mainstream, these new reporting measures will help mitigate risks associated with tax evasion and also enhance the stability of the financial market while in alignment with global standards.
