You’re getting pretty tedious on this point, to be polite
The position is clearly not clear
If it was no guidance would have been needed on any tax and nor would HMRC say it will need to revisit the issue
Quite simply, you are wrong
To provide the background here.
So, HMRC update their advice on how Bitcoin is to be taxed. Ritchie complains because it doesn’t make clear how seigniorage profits will be taxed. We all tell him that this is obvious and no guidance is needed on this point.
Ritchie’s response is as above. That obviously it wasn’t obvious other wise why would HMRC issue guidance?
But HMRC didn’t issue guidance on how seigniorage will be taxed therefore it must, by Ritchie’s latest argument, be obvious, no?
