Exemptions from capital gains tax and stamp duty in the UK make it a tax-efficient way to take advantage of rising and falling markets.
Spread betting lets you speculate on rising and falling markets, including forex pairs, indices, energies and commodities. It is increasingly popular in the UK due to exemptions from capital gains tax and stamp duty*.
* Spread betting is tax-free and available only in the UK. Tax laws, however, may change and can vary by jurisdiction and clients' personal circumstances. We do not provide tax advice.
In spread betting, a market’s movement is measured in points. The amount of points a market moves determines your profit or loss.
For example, we buy £2 per point of GBP/USD (also known as "Cable") at 1.4330. The margin required is 2 * (1.4330 * 10 000) / 200 = £143.30. The market starts moving in our direction, and we close for a 30-point profit at 1.4360. The total profit is 30 * 2 = £60.

You are quoted a “buy” and a “sell” price when opening a spread bet. The “spread” is the difference between them. You do not own the underlying asset but bet on the instrument's movement. The more favourable market moves are, the higher your profit. The greater they are against you, however, the bigger your loss.
While there are similarities, there are also differences, with unique advantages, between the two products.
