Hi Dean, I would recommend that you understand the leverage implications of trading CFDs/spread bets. Coming from a hard cash share dealing background, make sure you understand position sizing and margin requirements. 

CFDs are taxed differently from shares. Some people use it mainly for hedging. You can find more info on this on the IG academy website.

All the best
