Authorities to Study Bankrupt QuadrigaCX

Canada Revenue Agency sent a request for access to the tax info from Oct. 1 2015 to Sep. 30, 2018
18 September 2019   43

The Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) intends to examine corporate declarations that ceased to exist as a result of the bankruptcy of the QuadrigaCX bitcoin exchange, The Globe and Mail reports.

CRA sent a request for access to the tax reporting of the exchange from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2018, that is, on the date when QuadrigaCX tentatively began problems with the withdrawal of funds.

The E&Y auditor, acting as the trustee of the exchange, intends to discuss the tax request and obtain permission from the court to disclose information.

At the same time, the company noted that one way or another they are forced to comply with the CRA requirements, although this will take a lot of time and delay the payment of compensation to victims.

At the beginning of the year it became known that QuadrigaCX lost access to user funds by $ 190 million, and somewhat later, Indian authorities confirmed the death of the founder of the exchange, Gerald Cotten.
