I have signed up for a Ib account and live in the UK. How do i go about paying tax, do i need to register with HMC to state i am trading or simply send money at the end of the year? What is the percentage if it is a high number? Is it capital gains tax or is it income tax that trading comes under in the UK? Also i am a frequent trader trading at least 10 times a day so does this make a difference compared to a long term investor?

Thanks: 216 given,
1) asking the brokerage's salesman what support they offer for off-shore (non-US) accounts, and pointing you in the right direction towards compliance with whatever existing US Tax Laws apply towards foreign accounts,
2) follow up with their compliance department, as some manager (not an entry level person) would know where to point your accountant or otherwise
3) generally these boards are populated with US based traders who really don't know about complex off-shore tax and accounting questions like these
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?
