How to treat copy trading profit share payments / refunds in tax report?


In 2023 and 2024 I tried copytrading on OKX and Bybit. In both files, unfortunately, profit sharing payments and refunds where not included and will need to be integrated manually into Koinly (big shout out to Jack and Arty from Koinly support who are a big help with this!).

How should there payments /refunds be regarded tax wise. In Germany (where I pay taxes) future trading is a different tax category so I do not want to mix them up with my capital gains from spot trading. Maybe I could label profit sharing payments as"margin fee" and profit sharing refunds as “realized PnL”?

Maybe someone has experience on this topic!
