Which one is best for me?

Both spread betting and CFD trading offer the opportunity to trade on financial markets, however, there are subtle differences. Check our table to better understand which service is right for you.

Advantages of spread betting

  • Profits made from spread betting are exempt from stamp duty and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) in the UK*.
  • Only available to customers who reside in the UK or Ireland.
  • You can go long as well as short.
  • When spread betting shares on our platform, no additional commission will be charged to your account.

Advantages of CFDs

  • Since you don't own the underlying asset when trading CFDs, there is no stamp duty to pay. However, you will be subject to Capital Gains Tax.
  • Available to customers globally.
  • You can go long as well as short.
  • When trading CFD shares on our platform, a commission will be charged to your account upon execution of any order. This is in addition to the spread.

* Tax laws are subject to change and depend on individual circumstances. Tax law may differ in a jurisdiction other than the UK.
