Australia classifies binary options as capital gains and income. Australia does not include binary options under gaming tax like some other countries do. The way you file will depend on how you use binary options and how much you earn. For small amounts, you may be able to list them as additional income. For larger investments, you may be required to list them as capital gains.
Contact a tax adviser, especially the first year you trade, for clarification. Some of the issues to be considered are as follows: Is binary options considered as a form of gambling or not?

Opening a Digital Option Account In order to open a binary options account in Australia, a choice should be made from the following: Trading the Binary Options Account: Knowledge on trading techniques has to be acquired from webinars, e-books and review sites.
There are many such sites loaded with information on how to trade, how to determine the best price for positions, etc. Withdrawing from the Account: Withdrawals follow the same methods used in funding the account. Each broker will have its own withdrawal policies. When profits on price variations in the fixed odds market are made, the trader should endeavour to settle all tax obligations to the relevant authorities.
