Hello all, I'm in need of some infos for my business plan... I'm a decently profitable trader, living in France. I'm increasingly feeling that I will never go back to a regular job. So I have to think about a long term plan. I have thought of every aspects of a long term plan but there are two recurring plagues that really hurt my plans. -0.6 percent tax per trade, even if the trade is a loser. -64 percent annual tax on profits (actually a bit less since I am not taxed on hardware/quote fees/internet access and everything mandatory for this business). With these tax issues, compounding a part of the gains is nearly impossible. So basically, I end up with profits similar to what I would earn as an employee. The situation being worse in fact since I have to put my own capital at risk, unlike an employee. My goal is to compound a part of the profits so that I have an exponentially growing business. Could you tell me about the taxes where you live ? (wherever that may be) Thanks for advance, C2 BTW, I have been reading this board for some weeks and I think it is really great, both great info and great people here IMO.
