Lukka provides software and data services for back-office processing of cryptocurrency transactions particularly for tracking and calculating tax obligations.

Lukka offers products for institutions including cryptocurrency trading platforms, investment fund administrators, trading firms and accountancies. Its core products are its software for tax professionals, crypto office - which transforms decentralized data into formats ready for use, and its reference data archive which covers numerous cryptocurrencies and trading venues.[1]

In January 2020, Lukka received Type 2 Service Organization Control (SOC) reports on tests of Lukka's software's operational effectiveness. The tests were conducted by the accounting firm Friedman LLP and enabled Lukka to sell software and services to customers who require third party cybersecurity attestations.[2]

In April 2020, the company announced that it had been selected by RSM US, the tax and auditing firm, to provide software for use in tax preparation for clients involved with cryptocurrencies. According to Lukka, RSM tax preparers will use LukkaTax for Professionals and Lukka Crypto Office software. Financial aspects of the arrangement were not disclosed.[3]
