I live in UK and I see that there are 2 taxes when trading: Please not that I'm not referring to binary options or spread betting that are exempt but to those contracts that are listed on exchange i. If I ge erate a profit when trading these contracts what is the the tax that has to be paid?
Is it CGT or income tax? I can't find clear explanation on the HMRC website. Futures trading using TT or your platform of choice and then wrapped as a spreadbet so you pay no tax. No CFD or bets. You trade futures using TT or software of your choice in normal way on the exchange so there is no extra spread or conterparty risk. Kyte are registered as a spread betting company so no CGT or income tax. But how does it work? Suppose I want to use Interactive Brokers to trade options.
How do I use Kyte? Thank you for the answer. I am searching info on HMRC website but it is a real mess to be honest. So far I found these two pages quite interesting: The last case is for option trades like box spread when they generate a risk free profit that would be treated as income.
But this should not work for me since I am an individual. To be honest, I didn't understand the following link: Because in this case any profit would be treated as income I think. CG 2 is less about box trades, and more about anti avoidance tactics to stop my employer paying me in riskless share options, which I then pay CGT on. But there they say: This applies to non-resident companies that are charged to income tax on the profits of a UK property business, as well as to individuals, partnerships and so on.
For example, I am an individual investor that has the main source of income from a different activity. Everything both profits and losses that is generated from from this activity will go under the CGT rules?
