Among the many CSV reports we offer at CoinLedger is the End Of Year Positions report (EOY). This report is an aggregate of all the transactions that you've imported into our platform during a given year, which includes your buys, sells, incoming and outgoing transactions, crypto income distributions, and more.

This report will give you a snapshot of your EOY crypto holdings as of the last day of the most recent tax year. This means that the 2021 report would show your positions as December 31st, 2021, and likewise for all other tax years.

Note that this report is not a ledger of your entire transaction history, but rather, a list of each purchase of crypto on your account-indexed by asset and timestamp-with information on your total remaining balance for those crypto assets.

Fields Explained

  • Date Acquired: This column will show you the date and timestamp in which you acquired each asset on your account, in the original timezone in which this transaction took place. Note that the date listed here is the earliest date for the remaining cost basis of that coin, and not the date for the entire balance of that asset on your account. In other words, this acquisition date only reflects that specific purchase, and is NOT the acquisition date used for every other transaction of that asset on your account.

  • Asset: This column lists the ticker symbol of whichever crypto coin was transacted.

  • Amount Remaining: This column shows your total balance left over from each purchase listed for that crypto asset. For example, in the above screenshot, for the lot of ADA that was originally purchased on 2020-09-04, the EOY Positions Report shows that there are only 2,926 ADA left over from that initial purchase. The rest have either been transacted, sold, or otherwise disposed of.

  • Cost Basis Remaining: This column reflects the total fiat value of a crypto asset left over from the original transaction that took place, and is displayed in the Home Fiat Currency of your account. In other words, this column is what you haven't sold or transacted yet from that initial transaction.

Why do my EOY Positions look incorrect?

Before concluding that your EOY Positions are incorrect, it's important to first remember that this report only reflects the information you have imported into our software. Our platform is only able to display the info that you've uploaded, so it's critical to make sure you have imported all of your data from every crypto exchange you use, for all your years of trading. Without this information, your tax reports and your end of year positions could be incorrect, simply due to missing data.

Additionally, remember that the EOY Positions Report does NOT reflect a real-time, current value of all your crypto holdings. Instead, it's intended to display your holdings as of the last day of that tax year. It also does not reflect your capital gains in any capacity. Your capital gains can instead be found in either your Capital Gains CSV reports, or the summary shown on your account under Step 4 Tax Reports.

What can I do with the EOY Positions Report?

The EOY Positions Report can be used in a few different ways, including:

  • For your own personal accounting/record-keeping purposes

  • By your CPA or tax professional to satisfy tax reporting requirements

  • To reconcile/resolve missing cost basis warnings or other missing data on your account
