About This Class

Learn the proper accounting for cryptocurrencies under accounting rules and regulations. Purchases, gains, sales and tax

** New Course for 2018! **

Lets face it, cryptocurrency is the hot topic of 2017 and 2018.  While so many people and companies are focused on trading currencies, mining coins and setting up ICO's (initial coin offerings), there is an important aspect behind the scenes that must be addressed - HOW DO US ACCOUNTANTS PROPERLY ACCOUNT FOR CRYPTOCURRENCY!?!?

Well you found the right course! In this course I will teach you the proper, correct and legal way to do the accounting for cryptocurrency.  Whether its the initial purchase, recording gains and losses, and what happens when you sell, we will cover it all.  We won't be talking about actual trading specifics or mining, we are focused solely on the accounting and tax side of cryptocurrency in this course.  

What We Do In The Course:  

  • Learn the very basics of what cryptocurrency is
  • Understand the accounting treatment for a purchase of cryptocurrency
  • Understand the accounting treatment for gains and losses on your cryptocurrency
  • Understand what happens in accounting when you sell cryptocurrency
  • Learn what the proper tax treatment is and your obligations
  • And more!

At any point if you have a question, please feel free to ask through the course forum, I'd be happy to answer any and all questions.  

Chris Benjamin, MBA & CFO is a seasoned professional with over 20 years experience in accounting, finance, and lately cryptocurrency.  Having spent the first 10 years of my career in corporate settings with both large and small companies, I learned a lot about the accounting process, managing accounting departments, financial reporting, external reporting to board of directors and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and working with external auditors.  

The following 10+ years I decided to go into CFO Consulting, working with growing companies and bringing CFO level experience to companies.  I help implement proper best business practices in accounting and finance, consult on implementation of accounting systems, implementing accounting procedures, while also still fulfilling the CFO roll for many of my clients which includes financial reporting, auditing, working with investors, financial analysis and much more.  

Thank you for signing up for this course. I look forward to being your instructor for this course and many more!
