Classify Transfers

How to classify transaction types


Your transactions are taxed differently depending on their type, so transaction types are necessary. Please specify the types of uncategorized outgoing and incoming transactions based on the following descriptions.


  • Includes all buys, sells, conversions, and token swaps.

  • There is no need to add a separate category for each because Cointelli will automatically recognize each "Trade" as a "Buy", "Sell", or "Convert".
