Hi reecebrom94

When you buy and sell shares, you have to pay capital gains tax on any profits that you make. But when you spread bet, any profits are yours to keep because they are exempt from capital gains tax. And since you never actually own the underlying asset, you won’t have to pay stamp duty either.*
