Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hi.There isn't a great deal of detail to be had I'm afraid. There is no government limit to the number of trading accounts that you can have in the UK as the companies involved are always after new accounts but some may ask if you have any accounts already and possibly do credit checks.I hope this helps but let me know if you have any further questions.
Thank you for your quick reply, and I have gave you an excellent mark.
Just one minor question following. If I apply for a new trading account in a new trading platform/broker, and then get this new account. Do I need make sure, these two accounts are dealing with totally different tradings?
I will use my existing old account to do some long-term investment and holding for large FTSE companies shares.
I want to use a new account (if I have) to do some a bit risky but smaller investment, like CFDs, forex trading and spread betting.
These two accounts are totally independent in two different brokers/trading platforms.
Does this sound OK for an accountant?
