Capital Gains & UK Share Trading

Recommended Posts


I thought IG was going to launch a new statement which shows the Capital Gains made / owed on UK Shares in Mid September? 

Any have any idea when this will be launched? 


As a side note, IF IG doesn't introduce this new statement which shows Capital Gains on share trading, what's the best way to work it out? I have many transactions in one financial year & sometimes buying, selling and buying the same share in the same day.


Many thanks.

Hi Nichalex,


I'm struggling to locate an excel spreadsheet for CGT for my yearly trading of shares.  Are you happy to provide me a copy of your excel spreadsheet to input my own share dealings please?


This is driving me mad, as the rules are so confusing and all HMRC do is provide you with loads and loads of documents (which make no sense to me :( ).

    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
    • Hi kinda interested in your margin problem, I trade very small cap shares in spread bet in both Uk and US, then the margin call is very rare as long as you have enough capital to cover the 80% falls that can occur with odd news. Have worked of Forex a lot and just find it too unstable. Just wondere if ant other person has this method. I would be interested to share ideas.   
    • By the way if its a system you want to demo or try, I trade US 500 and Russell Long only, with no stops, I would not trade with no stops for gold, oil etc but am happy to do it on US indices as nothing recovers as quickly as US markets, so if I am wrong i just hold it until it goes in profit again, when I am wrong I wait until market recovers, so sometimes when market has gone against me I have to wait 4 -8 weeks before it recovers but this way means no drawdowns only overnight currency charge which is minima. You need to trade wihin your accoutn to do this as you need to make sure your balance is big enough when you get it wrong. You could try it on IG demo account  to see if it worked for you.
