  1. Hi Guys!

    I should have clarified in the video, you only pay capital gains when you sell your shares. Not while you are holding them.


  2. The political risk of having someone revoke the tax free status of ISA gains worries me

  3. HMRC are the scum of the earth and harbour incompetence of the highest order.

  4. Excellent video very informative ,
    I have a question I would appreciate very much your reply I am new to all this
    I just opened a Degiro account and I intend just to buy around £3000 of US and Europe
    accumulating ETFs and sell them in 5 years time I live in the UK my question is
    do I have each year to declare and pay taxes on these Etfs or
    only when I sell them or I don`t need to do nothing ?

  5. im confused. i live in the uk and if i invest in a stocks isa i have to pay stamp duty hows much is that? also do i have to pay tax on my dividents if i earn more than 2k? cheers. new to this investing malarkey haha

  6. Hi I have a question. What if I don’t withdraw the money from my broker ? Do I still have to pay ?

  7. I am just starting out, investing £100 pm, would you recommend taking the hit and paying for an Isa anyway?

    I own a little crypto have earned about 3k gains from others side hustles this tax year

  8. Hi Damien, awesome videos as always!!
    The figures you explain in the video, Is this ontop of a salary or inclusive?

    For example, i work fulltime for 25k a year pay income tax on these wages.
    If I was to have a gain on crypto (say a gain of £500 for ease of figures) or other investment would I pay tax on the whole amount (because I’ve already had my tax allowance from my main employment) or is capital gains tax completely separate?
