Accounting for and auditing digital assets can be complex. Practices and regulatory guidance surrounding asset classification, measurement requirements, fair value considerations, disclosures, and other issues continue to evolve. Meanwhile, the need for building trust continues to grow, as financial institutions, corporations and consumers opt in to this new, but rapidly expanding industry.
We believe that digital assets are here to stay, and it is important to have a financial reporting plan in place.
The design and implementation of internal controls to safeguard your digital assets is critical. We can help you with the design of your internal control environment, including evaluation of relevant internal controls at a third party service provider (e.g., custodian).
Many cryptocurrencies are classified as “intangible assets” under US GAAP standards (for non-funds). We can help you with your assessment of the classification and assist with identifying the appropriate measurement requirements (e.g., fair-value requirements) and associated accounting policies.
The rights and preferences associated with certain digital assets can vary, which may require different accounting, such as treatment as a financial asset. We help you identify the appropriate presentation for cryptocurrencies held and related disclosures, including fair-value disclosures.
Initial recognition, subsequent recognition, and disclosures are important asset considerations. Other financial reporting considerations include impairment and fair value, as well as the systems and processes in place to monitor cost-basis tracking, gains, and losses for digital assets. We can help you analyze existing policies and can advise you and help you prepare your accounting policies associated with investments in cryptocurrencies.
