BGL announces unique integration with cryptocurrency exchange platform Cointree

BGL Corporate Solutions, Australia's leading supplier of SMSF administration and ASIC corporate compliance solutions, is proud to announce a unique integration with Cointree, a leading cryptocurrency exchange platform.

“It’s great to have Cointree as part of the BGL Ecosystem”, says Ron Lesh, BGL’s Managing Director. “Cointree provides outstanding cryptocurrency exchange experience and is a go-to for many Australians buying, selling or trading cryptocurrency - especially first-time traders. This is a great opportunity for Simple Fund 360 clients to add a new class of assets to their portfolios."

"We are excited to be the first exchange to join the BGL Ecosystem", says Jess Renden, Cointree's Head of Operations. "With cryptocurrency continuing to grow in popularity globally as an alternative asset class, our partnership with BGL continues Cointree's goal of making crypto easy, fast and safe for everyone. The integration joins our suite of tax tools and makes it easy for Australians to meet their SMSF reporting obligations."

The new integration with Cointree will keep track of all relevant CGT and crypto trading events for an SMSF. Clients can easily download a transaction file from Cointree's platform and import into Simple Fund 360 by using the BGL File Import in the Wraps and Platforms screen.

“At BGL, we are a strong advocate of developing ecosystem partnerships that establish a better way for our clients to work with their clients. Partnering with Cointree is an example of two leading technology providers collaborating to create new opportunities and for the benefit of both our clients”, adds Lesh.

BGL currently has over 350 partners as part of our Ecosystem.
