Taxation Issues for Security Token Offerings

John Marcarian   |   2 Nov 2021   |   2 min read

One of the most exciting developments of the Fourth Industrial Revolution presently underway, due to the emergence of digital assets, is the long overdue prospect that there will be a global redistribution of wealth unlike anything seen before.

The decentralised nature of digital asset ownership, the freedom to trade on decentralised platforms and the transparent nature of blockchain technology, means that for the first time in history – centralised forms of authority no longer ‘run the global wealth game’.

In this paper, our Founder, John Marcarian provides a non-technical, general outline of:

  • STOs;
  • Tax issues to consider for STO issuers;
  • Alternative structuring approaches to STOs;
  • Tax issues to consider for STO participants;
  • International state of play on STOs;
