Safello and Divly have together worked on an integration that automatically imports your transaction history into Divly. This method utilizes BankID and takes less than a minute to complete. Divly does not store any personal information beyond your transaction data.

Use BankID to authorize Divly to access your transaction history.
Divly will automatically import your transactions from Safello.

Transaction types to consider when calculating your Safello taxes
There are four types of transaction types that you should consider when using Safello. All of these should be considered when declaring your taxes with Skatteverket. If you are using Divly, then the first two will be completely automated for you.
Buy Crypto with Fiat
In Safello, you can purchase crypto using Swish, Klarna, Bankgiro, and SEPA with Swedish Crowns. You can even automate your purchases on a monthly schedule which is a handy feature.
Any purchase you make on Safello will be added to your cost basis (in Swedish, this is called “omkostnadsbelopp”). You should keep track of all your purchases and ensure that you calculate the cost basis correctly using the Average Cost Basis methodology (in Swedish, this is called “genomsnittsmetoden”). For more information see our Swedish Tax Guide. If you have used Divly, then the cost basis calculations will be automated for you.
Trading fees are included in the purchase price when using Safello and should be used to reduce your taxable gains. So if you swished 20,000 SEK for 1 Ethereum, then the cost basis will be 20,000 SEK.
Sell Crypto for Fiat
In Safello you can connect your bank account to be able to sell cryptocurrency for Swedish Crowns.
Selling crypto is a taxable event and should be declared to Skatteverket. This is done by taking the difference of the sale price and the cost basis of the respective cryptocurrency. Profits and losses for each cryptocurrency are summarized and recorded separately in the K4 report. If you have used Divly, then both the calculations and K4 report will be automated for you.
Similar to purchases, trading fees are included in the sale price and should be used to deduct your taxable gains. If you sold 1 Ethereum and received 25,000 SEK, then your sale price is 25,000 SEK.
Withdraw crypto from Safello
When you purchase crypto in Safello, it will automatically be stored in your Safello wallet. If you do not send your crypto to another wallet, then you don’t need to worry about Withdrawals.
If you have withdrawn crypto from Safello to another wallet or exchange, then make sure that the transfer is matched when doing your taxes. Apart from the transfer fee, a transfer is not a taxable event. If you have used Divly, you should manually add this withdrawal as it currently can not be automatically fetched from the Safello API or CSV.
Deposit crypto from Safello
If you have transferred crypto into Safello, then similar to above, this is not a taxable event (apart from the transfer fee).
If you do deposit crypto into the Safello Wallet, then make sure to add these in Divly manually to ensure that your taxes are correct.
Withdrawals and Deposits in Safello prior to the Safello Wallet
Before the introduction of the Safello Wallet (2021-09-27), crypto was not stored in Safello. Instead, users of Safello had crypto sent to a Wallet of their choosing. If this includes you, and you have used other exchanges to trade crypto, then it is important to add deposits / withdrawals manually in Divly to ensure that these transfers are matched.
If you need help or have questions regarding this, feel free to reach out to our trained support staff who can help guide you through the process.
