- Investments made via investment managers or local brokers by foreign investors would be exempt from taxation in the UK.
- Investor appetite is likely to improve due to this decision.
- There has been an upswing in the acceptance of cryptos and blockchain technology lately.
Investments made via investment managers or local brokers by foreign investors would be exempted from taxation in the UK. This decision has already come into force.
The cryptocurrency market was on a roller coaster ride last year. The investors’ sentiment was hurt as the sector crumpled as the crypto market went into a prolonged crypto winter phase. Nevertheless, when considering the larger picture, it is essential to acknowledge the fact that there has been a rise in the adoption of cryptos and blockchain technology.

As acceptance rises, it becomes obligatory for countries to set up rules for the same. The first step in the process is undoubtedly a sound taxation system. The first news regarding the same came from the UK, which declared the application of tax exemptions on cryptocurrencies for foreigners.
When foreign investors hire an investment manager in Britain, they would not have to be subjected to UK taxation. This would potentially play a critical role in drawing foreign investors.
