What Is Spread betting?

Financial spread betting is a form of derivatives trading that allows you to speculate on the price movements of a number of markets.

Tax-free trading

Any profits that you make by financial spread betting in the UK are currently exempt from Capital Gains Tax, which saves you a considerable amount of the profit you earn while trading.

Add this to the fact that as spread bets are derivative products, meaning they are exempt from UK stamp duty, spread betting can be a highly tax efficient form of trading for UK traders.

Don’t forget that tax laws in the UK are liable to change, and these products may not be suitable for all investors.
