Session 4a : Digital Assets, Tax & Cross-Border Regulation

  • Adelaide Convention Centre North Terrace Adelaide, SA, 5000 Australia (map)

Digital Assets, Tax & Cross-Border Regulation

The role of regulators and authorities is often challenged by the adoption of new technology. Digital assets are no exception and the role of the regulatory ‘sand-box’ is critical. The Government of Mauritius has embraced a pro-active approach to defining policies and regulations that seek to licence and legislate digital assets. Indeed it has established a digital asset legislation and most recently sought to licence digital asset custodians. Ultimately however, this is a global economy and no more so than now. What considerations are critical and essential to ensuring the integrity of taxation and cross-border regulation are maintained and what impact will the increasing adoption of digital assets in lieu of traditional trade have on the way countries tax and regulate trade?
