Spread Betting


One of the benefits of spread betting in the UK and Ireland rather than using other forms of financial trading is that any profit you make is tax-free. In the UK and Ireland, spread betting is seen a form of gambling and therefore no Capital Gains Tax needs to be paid on winnings. It should be noted though, that this benefit does not work both ways — losses cannot be used in an attempt to offset tax which is owed.

Spread betting or standard trading?

Spread betting or standard trading?

There are some differences to be aware of between spread betting as a form of investment and standard forms of trading. One of the biggest contrasts has already been mentioned; any profit earned from spread betting is tax free, but the same is not true of regular trading (in neither case, however, can losses be offset against taxes owed).

Another advantage of trading via Spread Betting versus standard trading is the fact that the investor is able to employ leverage. By using leverage, traders are able to put down large trades even though they may only have a small percentage of the actual position. In traditional trading, you would have to have the funds fully in place to cover the amount staked. Traders should bear in mind that leverage settings are changeable based on market conditions and the use of leverage increases one’s risk.

With it being possible to make a smaller initial investment, the potential profit margin can be far greater than in standard trading. On the flip-side however, losses can be much bigger. Some forms of spread bets can result in traders losing much more than the figure they invested, which is not the case with traditional trading.
