Client Story

How Tax Software Provider Leverages Kaiko’s Pricing Services

In Compliance With IFRS and GAAP Accounting Standards

The Problem

Determining a fair market value (FMV) for crypto assets for tax and accounting purposes is fraught with complexities due to issues like market fragmentation, volatility, discrepancies in exchange rates across different platforms, and 24/7 markets.

Recap encountered significant challenges in sourcing an appropriate pricing service for their tax and accounting software. They needed a solution that could not only provide accurate FMV for their clients but also align with prevailing compliance standards.

The Solution

In collaboration with Recap, Kaiko engineered a sophisticated pricing service ensuring a reliable Fair Market Value (FMV) for all crypto assets, dynamically adjusting to volatile market conditions and compliant under existing accounting standards.

Crypto markets are marked by heavy-tailed distributions in prices and volumes, filled with outliers, which poses significant challenges for aggregation, particularly for conventional approaches like Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) and Volume Weighted Median (VWM). To address this, Kaiko’s innovative Robust Pair Prices, leveraging a robust weighted median methodology, is designed to provide precise, agile, and equitable valuations of crypto assets.

Kaiko greatly enhances our offering with robust crypto valuations that accurately mirror market liquidity. Their service offers thorough audits and in-depth traces, clearly explaining the processes used to derive these valuations.”

Recap’s Product

Recap developed a tool that enables their clients to look up any crypto asset and return the FMV for this asset and audit trail that determined the price. This data-focused approach, powered by the robustness of Kaiko data and augmented by additional sources, currently powers FMVs for US and South African customers in the Recap platform.
