To Read the Full Story. A: Spreadbets are treated differently to contracts for difference. As such the taxman will treat any gains from spread betting activities as tax-free but this also means that losses cannot be claimed against other income.
Contracts for difference on the other hand have a lower spread and providers to not pay betting duty. But this also means that any realised profits are subject to CGT and therefore exempt from tax on about the first 9k. There is also a risk that if you are professional CFD traders the tax man might argue the point that profits are subject to income tax rather than CGT in this instance. This is just a basic guidance, seek a specialised accounting firm for advice. So in about - I believe, tax on winnings was abolished.
By scrapping the tax on winnings many more people were encouraged to gamble, and the government was able to collect tax on profits made by the bookmakers, and as it is a fact that more people lose than win, whether that's on spreadbetting or any kind of gambling they collect more this way than taxing the punter, and as has been pointed out, most traders are part time, and the majority lose money, so this could be offset against tax on earnings.
For many reasons I believe the government will not remove the tax free status on spread betting the most obvious being the immediate loss of the 3pc gaming duty on client losses. More clients lose than win in reality only a percentage make any significant gains and there is still the CGT threshhold to get over as well so the tax man would lose on 3pc of clients losses and only gain marginal monies from CGT on the winners.
Not only this but the losers would be able to offset their losses again CGT liabilities elsewhere. To conclude I believe and hope things carry on as they are, I hate giving money to the Chancellor. A: Stamp duty is a tax applied to UK share purchases only not sales.
The current rate on UK equities is 0. Spread bets are exempt from the 0. Thus, assuming an overnight rate of 0. In these circumstances it would take 60 calendar days for the accumulated financing charge to exceed the stamp duty saving. Note: For trading of international shares the 0.
A: Capital Gains Tax does not apply in Ireland either so gains from spread betting in Eire are also tax-free. My understanding is that under current legislation places like Wales and Australia are also free of capital gains tax.
A: The reason is to raise money for the government and no you can't claim it back! Spread betting gains are also not subject to Capital Gains Tax. Note that aside from Ireland and the UK, Switzerland and Greece also charge stamp on equity transactions. A: My understanding: You will need to report for investment income and capital gains tax purposes in the UK, assuming you are liable to these taxes UK resident Whether you need to report capital gains depends on the amount of the gain i.
You can claim a deduction against UK tax for US withholding tax and the commissions paid. You are theoretically liable for any currency gains. The HRMC website has booklets covering most of this. You will need to keep records to help complete your UK tax return. Unfortunately, the tax summary you get from the US broker will be of no use given they start and end their tax years differently to the UK.
You will be asked to complete a W8 IRS form by your broker not difficult so they have evidence you are not a US resident. Spread betting removes all this hassle no reporting, currency moves, etc. However, it is not suited to allow investors. A: It might be best if you consulted a specialised accounting firm on these matters First, be warned that making a living from spread betting like any gambling for that matter is a high risk venture and you might want to consider having a back-up plan to fall back on.
I would strongly urge anyone against using his life savings to spread bet with. In fact it might be wise to setup a betting bank for the spread betting to avoid mixing living costs and requirements from gambling results as no matter how successful you might turn out to be - it will still be a roller-coaster as far as profits and losses go.
No, you wouldn't as personal gambling profits are outside the taxation system. However, having said this you might want to consider setting up in some sort of self-employed capacity to produce some stability in earnings in which case you would register.
Would I need to fill in a self-assessment form each year even if it is free from any taxation? Hand it in to the job centre when you register as unemployed. Or a new employer if you went part-time. If you have no job and you aren't registered as self-employed then you would not be paying national insurance but you shouild still pay at least a little amount each financial year to mantain your full pension entitlement.
Also, if I choose to be self-employed as well as doing spread betting would I need to declare my winnings with HMRC i. You might want to keep reasonable records of self-employed income and your spread betting activities statements, bank transfers to and from your spread betting company
